CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior captain Christine Clark will head to the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) National Convention April 4-6 to attend the 12th-annual "So You Want To Be A Coach" program.

"Christine epitomizes what coaches look for in players both on and off the floor," said head coach Kathy Delaney-Smith. "Her work ethic is inspirational and contagious to her teammates. She is also a great role model for all younger athletes. Who better to go into coaching? I am thrilled she wants to be a coach."

The objectives of the program are to increase the understanding and application of skills necessary to secure coaching positions in women's basketball, increase the understanding and awareness of competencies necessary for success in coaching, introduce female basketball players to coaches and administrators, raise awareness of the existing talent pool of female basketball players who have a passion and interest in coaching the game of women's basketball.

Clark, a Capital One Academic All-District 1 team selection, paces the Crimson with 16.5 points per game. The guard from Tucson, Ariz., shoots 37.9 percent from the field while pulling down 4.8 rebounds.

Participants were selected based on academics, contributions to women's basketball on and off the court, professional resume and a written recommendation from her head coach.
