Saunders named FSU’s new women’s basketball coach

— FROSTBURG — Carrie Saunders, a graduate assistant coach at Frostburg State University the last two seasons, has been named head women’s basketball coach.

The announcement was made by FSU athetics Director Troy Dell. Saunders will serve in an interim role for the 2014-15 season.

“I want to thank Troy Dell for giving me the opportunity to become the next head women’s basketball coach," said Saunders. “I could not be more excited to work for the university and I look forward to establishing a culture by having our players excel in the classroom and be the best student-athletes that they can be.”

The Bobcats have seen steady improvement over the last two seasons with Saunders as an assistant. Frostburg increased its win total in each season, and finished the 2013-14 campaign with five wins in its final nine games.

Last year, the Bobcats scored 19 points more per game than in 2012-13 and finished third in the Capital Athletic Conference at 68.8 points per game. In addition to its improved scoring, FSU led the league in offensive rebounds (17.3) and finished second in rebounds (42.5), steals (13.2) and blocks (3.4).

Saunders came to Frostburg after a four-year playing career at NCAA Division II Shepherd University. She finished 14th in school history in scoring and ranked second in field goals made and attempts during her career. As a junior, she was the recipient of both the Coach’s Award and Sara Cree Distinguished Athlete honor.

Saunders completed her master’s degree in education from Frostburg State in May and received her bachelor’s degree in communication and new media from Shepherd in 2011.
