June 28, 2002

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - Shepherd College head women's basketball coach Jodie Runner announced the hiring of Melanie Ford as the program's new assistant coach.

"Melanie has a great basketball background and knows the conference very well," Runner said. "We share the same coaching philosophy and she relates well to the players. She has great knowledge and quite an extensive background for a young coach."

Ford has served as a graduate assistant coach for the women's basketball program at Wheeling Jesuit for the past two years. She was a four-year letterwinner at the University of Charleston (1996-2000), earning first team all-conference honors as a junior and serving as the team's captain as a senior.

Ford helped the Golden Eagles to the conference tournament championship in 1998-99 and set several scoring records at UC.
