Stephens Named MEC Women’s Sports Coach Of The Year

Glenville State’s Kim Stephens has been named the Mountain East Conference Women’s Sports Coach of the Year for 2017-18.

Stephens, in her second season at her alma mater, directed the Pioneers to a 31-2 season on the hardwood. Glenville State became the first program — men’s or women’s — to navigate conference play with an undefeated record at 22-0 en route to a second-straight regular season conference title. The Pioneers then went on to win their first MEC Tournament title since 2014. GSC amassed a 30-game winning streak (second longest in the country) during the season and ascended as high as No. 4 in the national rankings.

Stephens is 55-8 during her two seasons at Glenville State, including a 40-4 mark in conference play. She has led GSC to the NCAA Tournament in each of her first two seasons.

The MEC Women’s Sports Coach of the Year is selected by a vote of institutional administrators and the conference office.
