SALISBURY – Livingstone College announced a new addition to the Blue Bear athletics family Friday.

Athletic Director Lamonte Massie-Sampson announced that Chiante Wester was the new head women’s basketball coach during a press conference on the Salisbury campus.

Wester comes to Blue Bear country after serving as assistant women’s basketball coach for the Virginia State University Trojans since August 2006. She joined Virginia State University after reuniting with former Shaw University Assistant Coach James Hill, Jr.

During her tenure at Virginia State, Wester participated in five regular-season division championships in the CIAA Conference, four NCAA appearances and a CIAA Championship as VSU captured more than 200-plus wins.

Wester has mentored several all-conference players, league players of the year, first-ever VSU HBCU/CIAA players of the year and academic All-Americans.

She worked primarily with the guards in her role at Virginia State and assisted Hill in all facets of player development, on the court coaching and individual skill instruction as well as recruitment. Her administrative responsibilities consisted of coordinating and directing community relations, outreach projects, and managing and organizing team managers.  She also oversaw the academic study hall and academic progress of the student-athletes within women’s basketball.

In 2013, Wester was selected to attend the NCAA Black Coaches and Administrators Achieving Coaching Excellence (ACE) Program. In 2008, she attended the NCAA Women’s Coaches Academy.

Born in Havana, Fla., Wester was a standout high school player at Havana Northside High School under the legendary coach Rosa Hughes-Browning. She played collegiately for two seasons at North Florida, earning Panhandle 2nd Team Conference honors both years. She then transferred to Shaw University for the 2000-2004 seasons, where she received several awards including outstanding player, outstanding service award, athletic trainer senior award, most improved basketball player and outstanding student honoree.

She graduated cum laude from Shaw University in 2003 earning her bachelor’s degree in allied health and recreation. In 2010, she received a master’s degree in sports management from Virginia State University.

“We strongly believe this is a next-level move for not only Coach Wester, but for our women’s basketball team,” said Massie-Sampson. “She is ready and eager to excel as a head coach and deliver her own coaching style to a team that is also primed for greatness.”

“Coach Wester was a great choice to lead our women’s basketball team,” said Livingstone President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr. “We have a lot of confidence in her leadership capabilities and look forward to her cultivating a spirit of excellence among our student-athletes on and off the court.

Sports Forum / D2 FB Changes Coming
« on: January 13, 2015, 09:29:11 PM »
Many changes will be coming for the next season.  One of the major ones is 7 teams per region will be in the playoffs this season with the top seed getting a bye.

Went to the wrong meeting by mistake and sat in and boy I tell ya.....some other things are coming that is going to effect all D2 HBCU's.....I had MAJOR concerns...but being that I am not a Head Coach anymore I just kept my mouth shut. 

There is a possibly...a verrrry STRONG possibility that the AQ will go away and they go by he rankings.  There is a whole set of criteria they put out on the selection process for the playoffs.  The way WE schedule will damn sure get you ranked lower and subsequently out of the playoff picture.

Oh well.....SMDH

Opposite the press box side...there MAY be 1000 fans.  I am assuming the bulk of the fans are on the press box side.

I hope the HBCU's considering a game there REALLY think about this before signing a contract.  Better cash the check and get those pass ports complete.  LOL

General Discussion Forum / List a RESPECTED Black Leader and why
« on: December 11, 2014, 09:39:34 AM »
I am just numb about our leadership.  Please list a person in our community who is a real leader.  Not only liberal but conservative or any other affiliation. Not just someone who can excite a crowd or come up with some catchy phrases.  Someone who has a vision and trying to work some type of plan.
