Conn said, “I am very humbled and honored to be named the new women’s basketball coach at Kentucky Christian University. This program has such an extensive history of success in the NCCAA and I will work hard to continue this rich tradition of excellence. The team has 9 returning players with plenty of experience and lots of new talent. It should be an exciting year.”
With 24 years of coaching experience under her belt including stints at Nicholas County High School, Lakeside Christian Academy, and Rowan County High School, Conn picked up 5 KCAA (Kentucky Christian Athletic Association) State Titles.
