MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College & State University women’s basketball team and head coach Maurice Smith would like to welcome new graduate assistant Liz Hathaway to the Bobcat coaching staff.
“We are very excited to have Liz,” said Smith. “She will be a terrific asset on this staff. She has been mentored by two of the best coaches in the game of basketball at their respective levels, Paul Webb from Bullock Academy and Andy Landers from University of Georgia. She has a strong desire to become a successful coach at this level and there is no doubt in my mind she will accomplish that.”
A native of Statesboro, Ga., Hathaway received her bachelor’s degree as a double major in economics and sports business from the University of Georgia in 2008. While at Georgia she was the student manager of the women’s basketball team for three years.
Hathaway continued on to Georgia Southern University to receive her master’s of public health in 2010. She spent her 2009-10 season as an assistant coach for the women’s basketball team at Bulloch Academy.
Hathaway is pursuing her next master’s degree in human performance.
