Women’s basketball coach resigns

Women’s basketball head coach Sharon Dawley has resigned her position to accept a coaching position at the University of Massachusetts. 

Dr. Robert Corran, UVM Director of Athletics, announced the news on April 6.

“We are very disappointed to lose Sharon, and particularly after such a wonderful season,” Corran said. “But we recognize that good coaches are in high demand and she is definitely a good coach. Sharon has been offered and has accepted an exceptional opportunity at Umass and we wish her the very best.”

Dawley is the program’s all-time leader in wins, with a career record of 265-148 in 16 seasons.

This season, Dawley led the Catamounts to their second-straight America East title and appearance in the NCAA tournament.

The ladies defeated Wisconsin with a upset in the first round but then ended their season with a loss to Notre Dame.
