Clinton, S.C. – Presbyterian College Athletics and women’s basketball head coach Alaura Sharp announced on Monday the addition of Kenia Cole as an assistant coach. Cole comes to PC after one season at Oberlin College.
“I'm thankful and excited to work with the entire PC women's basketball staff,” said Cole. “I look forward to being a part of such a great program. This is a tremendous opportunity for me as a coach to learn and grow under Coach Sharp's leadership.”
Cole assisted the Yeowomen to its first North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament Championship and its first trip to the NCAA Tournament. Oberlin finished the season with a program-best record of 21-8.
“Kenia is a great fit to finalize our women's basketball staff,” said Sharp. “She has been a part of winning cultures both as a player and coach. She will be a tremendous role model for our players and an asset in our recruiting efforts. I am really excited to welcome Kenia to our PC family.”
Cole was a four-year member of the women’s basketball team at Hampton University. She is a four-time Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) regular season champion, three-time MEAC tournament champion and was named the most improved player as a junior. She totaled over 245 assists in her career and ranked in the program’s top-10 for made three-pointers.
