University of Scranton head women’s basketball coach Mike Strong announced that Sheila Cook has joined the Lady Royals coaching staff as a full-time assistant coach.
Cook, a 2011 graduate of Muhlenberg College, joins the team after spending the past two seasons as an assistant coach at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre. She helped the Lady Colonels post 17 wins over those two seasons, the most successful two-year stretch in the program’s past nine seasons.
While at Wilkes, Cook helped with development of practice and conditioning plans, creation and execution of game plans, evaluation and recruitment of prospective student-athletes and team and individual compliance with NCAA and Wilkes University rules and regulations.
Scranton opens its 2013-14 season on Friday, Nov. 15, when it takes on Montclair State at 6 p.m. in the Gwynedd-Mercy Tip-Off Tournament in Gwynedd Valley.
