Abstract/ Summary

Former Maine women's basketball great Cindy Blodgett returned to her alma mater on May 23,2007, when she was introduced as the 10th head coach in program history.

"Anyone who knows me knows that I enjoy challenges,"she said at her introductory news conference."There is a tremendous amount of support for this program and I am happy to be back home."

Blodgett returned to Maine after spending the previous two seasons as an assistant coach with the Brown women's basketball team, including helping to lead the team to a share of the 2006 Ivy League championship. At Brown, she was the recruiting coordinator and coordinated the daily operations of the program. One of her recruits, Lindsay Walls, was selected to the Ivy League All-Rookie team. She planned daily practices, managed the operational and recruiting budgets, implemented game strategies and monitored student-athletes' academic progress. Prior to Brown, she served as an assistant coach at Boston University from 1999-2000.
