Gear McBride Introduced as Vermont's Head Women's Basketball Coach on Monday PDF Print E-mail

BURLINGTON, Vt. - Newly hired Vermont women's basketball head coach Lori Gear McBride was introduced to the media and campus community at a press conference at Patrick Gymnasium on Monday afternoon.
Gear McBride spoke to the crowd about how much she has "revered" UVM and watched the program from her hometown of Lennoxville, Quebec, just three hours from Burlington. When it came time to make a decision to attend college, Gear McBride's choices came down to UVM and the University of North Carolina. She decided on Chapel Hill over Burlington and went on to win a national championship as a freshman, but she still followed Vermont and when the head coaching position opened up she jumped at the opportunity.
"I grew up watching and just loving Vermont women's basketball, that was really my first taste of NCAA basketball. I've always had such a great appreciation for the tradition and the success that Vermont women's basketball is about. Being able to have the opportunity to lead this program and to continue the level of success is just so exciting to me," said Gear McBride.
