Whitmore Lake’s Women’s basketball team has a new coach this year! Coach Martin has come to Whitmore Lake after 25 years of coaching.
Coach Martin has coached basketball at every level from middle school to college, including AAU and AYBT. She has also been a Varsity Track and Field and a Cross Country Head Coach.
The new varsity girls’ coach participated in multiple sports throughout her athletic career and continues to enjoy an active lifestyle. “I have always been a cross athlete, even choosing now to stay involved in various sports, leagues, and teams,” Coach Martin explained.
In her first year, the team has won 2 games so far. Her first win against Clarenceville was an away win with a score of 31-20. Her second win came when the team served Rudolf Steiner their first and only loss so far in a 41-35 thriller.
On Thursday, February 9th, the girls squared off against the Aggies for the second time in conference play, hoping to avenge their earlier loss away from home. Sadly, they couldn’t pull it off as they lost 31-16.
