Eight recruits. Very nice. Looks like several are multi-sport athletes. Mia making use of that Kansas City area connection with the K. Stanley pick up. The video of Kleffman is very encouraging. She can get off her feet and shoot well. Averages over 10 ppg. I wish I could find some stats on Stanley. Video says she's a 3 shooter, but can't find her ppg. I like Kornak's video too. A tall player who can step out and hit the three.

Yes, from what I am gathering here the Titans have done very well on the recruiting trail.  Strong class coming in.

6-3 Emily Kleffman was also a good volleyball player at Tinley Park.  She is a very intriguing add - might be able to help right away.

2 or 3 of these newcomers will have a chance to help next season.

Looks like an excellent recruiting year for Mia Smith and the TITANS.  Glad to see some size, support for Riley Brovelli coming in . . .  Syd Shanks will be greatly missed, but IWU has so so much coming back from an already excellent team.  Will be interesting to see the new mix, the new approach next season.  Hope it can all happen. . .

She has been very successful at UChicago and is very well-regarded.
As to why she is taking the job a few miles north at IIT, I have no idea.
Check over on the University Athletic Association pages under WBB Multi-regional topics, since that's where UChicago is normally covered.

I believe U. of Chicago will be very interested in former Maroons assistant coach Olivia Lett.  Whether or not she is interested in that job, we'll see.

Two extremely different WBB head coaching jobs - Millikin and U. of Chicago.

Would love to see Coach Lett in Chicago.   Isn't there another former Titan on the staff now at UC?  Bilek?

Nice article about Coach Lett and the MU program.   They are coming up for sure.  Given what she's building there, I guess I'd be surprised if she had interest in the Chicago coaching job.

Best to all Chatsters out there.  Be safe and well.
