Title: NCAC 2017
Post by: gobash83 on August 31, 2017, 01:56:00 pm
As the NCAC begins non-conference play, it does so with a heavy heart. Long time DePauw University Women's Coach John Carter passed away unexpectedly yesterday. In his 24 years coaching the Tigers, John's teams went 255-156-24, with six conference championships (3 in the Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference) and three in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference. His teams made it to the NCAA tournament 7 times, with the 2003 team advancing to the NCAA semi-finals before losing to the University of Chicago in OT. John left DePauw in 2014 to run Indiana's ODP program full time, where he developed countless coaches and players.

May his memory be eternal.
