  • New coaches named for women’s basketball

    Officially they will be called “new” as members of Lena Bramblett’s women’s basketball coaching staff at St. Catharine College.

    But the coaches now on board for the Patriots are by no means new to the Patriot program.

    Gone is Terreka Walker, who spent the last five years with Bramblett as her only full-time assistant.

    Joining the staff for the 2012-2013 season are Sara Sexton and Tyler Campbell (Lena’s brother).

    Both have strong ties to the college as a whole and also to Patriot basketball.
