    Episode 174: Coach Sarah Hopkins-Chery (Head Women's Basketball Coach University California Merced) Merced, CA

    Hopkins-Chery’s 79 wins are good for second among any other active head coach in the conference.

    A native of Essex, England, Hopkins-Chery brings both playing and coaching experience to UC Merced.  In England, Hopkins-Chery attended Greensward College and attributes much of her stardom in the game of basketball to the Swifts Basketball Club along with Greensward.  While with Swifts and Greensward, both teams were yearly national championship contenders, while she was a player and a coach.

    She first earned international playing experience with the Under 16 and Under 20 England teams and eventually England’s senior women’s nation team in 2002.

    Hopkins-Chery attended and played basketball at Jefferson College where she was an NJCAA Academic All-American Scholar-Athlete in 2005, All-Region Academic Team member in 2005 and a two-time MCCAC Academic All-Conference honoree.  Additionally, the Vikings were conference champions in 2004 and 2005 while she was a part of the program.

    After two years at Jefferson she transferred to Park University where she became a standout on the women’s basketball team.  As a player at Park she helped lead a Pirates squad to the programs first-ever appearance in the NAIA National Tournament in 2005-06 after winning a conference title in the Association of Independent Institutions (AII).  Hopkins-Chery was also honored as an AII-Academic All-Conference member and an NAIA All-American Scholar-Athlete in 2006 (the first of three times she received this honor).

5 & 1

5 stars for guests and content, I’ve taken lots of notes & have gotten many great ideas.
1 star for audio. I’ve deleted some because I couldn’t hear the guest. Would be great if both parties volume was the same. Some editing could be done when signal is lost between guest & host & the random spots they cut off for ads in the middle of a conversation is annoying.

The system podcast

I love many of guests but the audio is horrific. Absolutely amateur hour.

jjarB ,
