After playing basketball at Allentown College (formerly Desales University), Kate Corcoran decided to coach because she wanted to stay involved in the game as well as having an impact on the girls. Before coming to Cabrini as the assistant coach of the women’s basketball team, Corcoran coached at Ursinus College.

“There was an open coaching position and I knew Darlene Hildebrand [head coach]. It was also a time for a change and I have more of a responsibility here at Cabrini, which I like,” Corcoran said.

Corcoran believes that the team is made up of young girls who give 110 percent. She feels that there is a lot of potential as well as talent in each girl.

“The girls look to senior captain Taryn Repici and sophmore captains Jackie Yoder and Lauren Budweg for leadership. Sophomore Jen Skursky definitely gives the team an emotional lift,” Corcoran said.

Corcoran said that “The three freshmen helping the team are Alisa Sedario, Jen Uganio, and Kira Brown. Alisa is gaining confidence with each game, which is so good to see, whereas Jen is very aggressive on defense and Kira provides a great inside presence.”

The team’s success in the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference will be judged on its out-of-conference games.

“It’s hard to say where we’ll end up in the PAC. I think we can win the Southern Region but it’s going to be a fight between us, Gwynedd Mercy and Alvernia for the PAC Champion,” Corcoran said.
