Long-time UIW women’s basketball head coach Angela Lawson has moved into an administrative role after 13 years with the program. On April 3, it was announced that Lawson had accepted the position of Associate Athletic Director Academic Services and Senior Woman Administrator for UIW.
“With our move to Division I, I just felt like it was the right time to make a change,” said Lawson. “I am very appreciative of Dr. (Lou) Agnese, Dr. (David) Jurenovich and Mark Papich for giving me the opportunity to be the head basketball coach 13 years ago and continue to be thankful for the chance to further my career at UIW.”
Lawson compiled a 191-174 record to set the pro- gram record for career wins. She guided the Cardinals to a Heartland Conference championship in 2009 and had five other teams reach conference tournament finals. She was named the Heartland Conference Coach of the Year in 2010.
