Smith steps down from women’s basketball post at Cedarville

Jason Smith has resigned his position as women’s basketball head coach at Cedarville University.

Athletic Director Chris Cross made the announcement and says the University has immediately begun a search for the next head coach.

In the meantime, Assistant Coach Alyssa Strickland will handle operations of the program on an interim basis.

Smith coached the Lady Jackets to 24 victories during his two seasons at the helm while dealing with numerous injuries to key players each year.

He guided Cedarville to a 17-12 record in his initial campaign and qualified for the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Tournament.

Both of Smith’s teams were known for excellent free throw shooting. This year’s squad led all divisions of the NCAA with a school record .838 accuracy.

Cedarville University is associated with NCAA Division II, NCCAA, and is a charter member of the G-MAC.
