St. George's Names New Varsity Girls Basketball Coach
St. George’s Independent School recently announced that Kayla Irvin will be the new Assistant Dean of Students and Varsity Girls Basketball Coach. Kayla joins St. George’s from Union University where she was the women’s basketball assistant coach.
“I am thrilled to have Kayla leading our girls basketball program this year," said St. George’s Athletic Director Tom Densford. "Her knowledge of the game, passion for working with young people, and successful track record not only as a coach but as a player made her the perfect candidate for this position. I am excited for our student athletes and fans!”
Not only did Irvin have a great record as an assistant coach at Union, she also had a fantastic basketball career there. Irvin is the all-time leader in games played at Union. She also ranks No. 1 in Union history in career assists (784), assists in a season (257), and career 3-point percentage (.445) to name only a few of her records. Irvin is a four-time NAIA All-American, twice named to the NAIA All-Tournament team, four-time TranSouth All-Conference, and was the 2008 TranSouth Newcomer of the Year and Freshman of the Year. During her four years as a player, Union won two national titles, advanced to four national tournament semifinals, won four TranSouth Regular Season titles, and won three conference tournament titles.
"I am really excited about the upcoming basketball season at St. George’s and am ready to get started,” said Irvin. “The culture at St. George's is one that I respect and admire greatly. I have no doubt that this will translate into athletics as well.”
