"Everyone associated with the our program is very excited about Kerry D. being named the NSCAA's National Assistant Coach of the Year," said head coach Steve Swanson. "Not only is she an outstanding coach, but she is an even better person who has earned the respect of all our players.
"Behind every successful program there are people that perform duties and responsibilities that often go unnoticed, but nevertheless are integral to the overall success of the team," added Swanson. "Kerry has done an amazing job fulfilling these responsibilities in addition to helping develop our players on the field and in the classroom. She is an outstanding coach, a great leader and is the ultimate team player. I cannot think of a more deserving coach and I am very happy that the NSCAA selected her for this prestigious honor."
