Lady Cobbers Make 10th NCAA Tourney

The Lady Cobber basketball team earned a record tenth-consecutive NCAA Division III Tournament appearance with a 15-5 record in the MIAC and an 18-8 regular-season record. The Lady Cobbers tied for 3rd in the MIAC and lost to St. Ben's in the NCAA opener.

With just two seniors graduating, next fall could find the Lady Cobbers back in the hunt for a 5th MIAC title in 8 years. Junior point guard Kristi Schultz (Wheaton) and sophomore forward Erica Hanson (Fargo) earned All-MIAC recognition as much for their solid floor play as their scoring.

Schultz averaged 7.5 points and moved into 3rd on the Cobber career assist list with 460. The 5-11 Hanson averaged 11 points and 7 rebounds per game.

Senior guard Cathy Johnson (Milbank, SD) became the 8th leading scorer in Lady Cobber history with 1087 career points. Senior Jackie Reese (New London) returned from a year of knee problems to score 219 points and pull in 112 rebounds.

Coach Jerry Pyle announced at the end of the season that he will become an assistant in the men's program. A six-week national search ended with the appointment of Bob Kohler as the new head coach. Kohler has served on the Cobber staff for the past five years as an assistant men's coach and faculty memeber. He has 20 years of experience coaching at both the high school and college level.
