2006-07 Lady Cat Basketball Season Preview
The 2006-07 Lady Cat Basketball team is facing a very challenging schedule. In fact,
Head Coach Jodi Gault
says it will be the most difficult season in her 25 years of coaching. Despite posting a 20-7 record last season, the Lady Cats came up just short of earning an NCAA Tournament bid. Finishing in the top ten in the East Region was still quite an accomplishment, but this season will be much more difficult.
The Pitt Johnstown program is currently ranked second nationally in win/loss percentage at .794. The Lady Cat program received another honor when CBSA (College Bound Student Athlete) showed the Lady Cats had the 18th best won/lost record among Division II women’s basketball programs in the nation over the last eight years (167-55 -.752).
enters the 2006-07 season with 519 victories. These 519 wins rank her sixth in victories and seventh in winning percentage among active women’s Division II coaches.

Shannon Reigh (Williamsburg, Pa.)
, a computer science major and red shirt senior, decided to forego her senior season to take a job as a software engineer with Raytheon Corporation in State College, Pa. These three Lady Cats helped lead the team to four 20-win seasons and a pair of trips to the NCAA Division II National Tournament. Not only did the Lady Cats lose these three veterans, but sophomore point guard

responsibility on the defensive end of the court by challenging the opponent’s best offensive guard.
