EWC coach named coach of the year

TORRINGTON, Wyo. — Eastern Wyoming College women’s basketball coach Tom Andersen has been named Coach-of-the-Year for the Region IX South Sub-Region. The Lady Lancers finished their season with a record of 21-10 which is an all-time high record for the College. Andersen is in his sixth year of coaching the Lady Lancers.

Andersen was selected coach-of-the-year by his peers in the South Sub-Region of Region IX. Other colleges joining EWC in this South Sub-Region are Western Nebraska Community College, McCook Community College, Northeastern Junior College, Lamar Community College, Otero Junior College and Trinidad State Junior College.

“It is an honor,” shared Coach Andersen, “But this is also a true reflection on the success of the team. The recognition should fall back on to the players who did a great job for us this year.”

Two women’s players were recognized as part of the All-Regional Team. Brittney Cross, a freshman from Orlando, Fla. and Jai Chandler, freshman also from Orlando. Players are selected for regional awards by the coaches based on their play during the season.

“This is great recognition for both of these players. It is a direct reflection of the team’s success and honor’s the rest of the team as well,” added Andersen.

Lancer sophomore Ryan Wilson from Layton, Utah earned recognition on the third-team all regional team.
