Head Coach Trish Roberts begins her third season at Agnes Scott
in 2013-14. Coach Roberts is originally from Monroe, Ga where she
attended Monroe Area High School. She began her college playing
career at North Georgia College before transferring to Emporia
State in Kansas and finally to the University of Tennessee. Over
the years Coach Roberts has amassed an amount of experience that
other coaches only dream about.
During her single season at the University of Tennessee playing for Pat Summit, Roberts set single season records for points in a season with 987 (averaging 29.9 per game) and rebounds in a season with 467 (averaging 14.2 per game). These records still stand today. Roberts was the first African-American to play at the University of Tennessee and the first Lady Vol to be named a Kodak All-American.
While at Tennessee, Roberts was selected to be a member of the U.S. Olympic Women's Basketball Team. The team went on to win a silver medal in the 1976 Olympics. Roberts, who was inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in 2000, has held coaching positions at various institutions throughout the years, most notably at the University of Maine where the team won the NAC Tournament two times in four years. In 2010 Roberts earned an MA in Sport Administration from Central Michigan University.
After retiring and spending several years away from coaching, Roberts is excited to be back in the game and is looking forward to many years at Agnes Scott.
