Her team at Smyrna High-School won back to back conference and division championships.
Director of Athletics, Dr. Pope believes Coach Naughton is what we need in a leader to rebuild the program because she has the practical skills to get on the floor and demonstrate what is needed to win”. “She also has the passion necessary to recruit and lead the Lady Panthers back to the National championship Tournament”. Coach Naughton says ” I’m looking forward to the challenge and I’m excited because I know there is talent here”.
The first task for Coach Naughton is fielding a team in quick fashion. The coach will be holding tryouts ASAP. Women who are interested in representing the Panthers and believe they have skills should stop by the Physical Education Center and show their Panther moves.Baltimore County CC Juco
