Katie Connelly's reasoning for picking Hagerstown Community College was very traditional. “It's close,” said Connelly, a Broadfording Christian Academy graduate. “I looked at other options, but this is the one that fit the best.” For many years, proximity and opportunity were the major reasons young women of Washington County elected to play basketball at HCC. Now, it's a little different. “Coach Bullett has played at all different levels and knows all about the game,” Connelly said.

Nobility is a two-way street. Some are born to lead. Others choose that destiny. Some are noble because they were born into a family of aristocratic ancestors who ruled a country. If that wasn’t true, the recent Mountbatten-Windsor—Middleton wedding wouldn’t have been such an extravaganza. Others choose to lead. Some do it as a hobby, but most do it as an extension of their profession of teaching. They are easy to identify. These people are called “Coach.” Two members of this “nobility of commoners” are Vicky Bullett and Joe Dietrich, both of whom became aristocrats last Tuesday.

Officially speaking, betting is a no-no in sports. Wagering is that 400-pound gorilla in the room in athletics. Bets philosophically go against the purpose of competition, but they are always there, hanging in the corner. Then again, it all depends on what's on the line … which can be anything from money to bartering for services to that seasonal story of politicians putting up some of their state's best goods to back a team in their constituency. This instance, though, is different.

No matter how momentous or ordinary a first is, it boils down to one thing. It's only a starting point. The Hagerstown Community College women's basketball team defeated Potomac State 80-58 on Monday in its season opener. It was the first game for HCC's new head coach Vicky Bullett and the majority of the Hawks roster. But firsts don't last. “Coaches are never satisfied,” said Bullett. “Basketball is a game of runs, but we didn't defend very well. When coaches see the things that they worked on all week before a game, they aren't happy, but they have to be patient.” Bullett will have a year's worth of patience ahead of her as she opened her first season of coaching the Hawks, replacing Marlys Palmer after 32 years on the bench.

It didn’t take long for Vicky Bullett to grasp Hagerstown Community College’s motto. “Stay close. Go far,” are words the school has built its reputation around. They are also the words Bullett is living by. Bullett, who went from Martinsburg High School star to one of the pioneers in women’s pro basketball in the United States, has returned to the area where it all started to begin a new chapter in her life — as an assistant coach at HCC. “I’m a homebody,” Bullett said after being introduced as the newest member of Marlys Palmer’s staff.

Vicky Bullett is learning the art of fence straddling. That's part of the balancing act it takes to be a coach, especially on the junior college level. Bullett is starting her first season as Hagerstown Community College's women's basketball coach. And just like the coach herself, it is a time of new faces, terminology and procedures that leads to the noncommittal response coming off the first month of preseason practices. “So far, so good,” Bullett said. “I'm optimistic, but I'm going to need to be patient.” Optimistic equals looking for the best.

From staff and wire reports SECAUCUS, N.J. - Vicky Bullett longed for a time when she could come home to play basketball. But until this year, there wasn't a women's professional league in the United States. There had been some attempts at women's leagues, but none had survived. But then, none had the outlook of the Women's NBA. Bullett, a Martinsburg, W.Va., native, was assigned to the Charlotte, N.C., franchise on Wednesday as one of 16 cornerstone players in the new eight-team league.

Vicky Bullett isn't much for labels. There are a lot of descriptions that will be cropping up as Bullett takes over as Hagerstown Community College's women's basketball coach, replacing Marlys Palmer who retired after 32 years on the job. The only thing that “new” and “change” mean to Bullett is the team's uniforms, and “transition” is the style of play she will be teaching. The significance is a little more basic. “I'm really excited,” Bullett said. “When I saw the players coming in, it's going to be different.

As she prepares for her first season as head coach of the women's basketball program at Hagerstown Community College, two-time Olympian Vicky Bullett has carved out some time to watch the 2012 Summer Olympics. “Even as an athlete who played in the Olympics and had the opportunity to participate, it's always been a great atmosphere to watch,” she said. “You want to see all these athletes challenge themselves to perform.” Bullett, who grew up in Martinsburg, W.Va., helped the U.S. Olympic women's basketball team win the gold medal in 1988 and then win bronze in 1992.
