Katelynn Frazier will be entering her first season as Women's Basketball Head Coach at Central Christian College of the Bible in 2018-19.
A familiar face to Saints fans, Frazier, the two-time NCCAA Division II All-American, was announced as the new head coach on Wednesday, March 7. She served as an assistant coach with the Saints during the 2017-18 season.
The Dexter, Mo., native was a staple in the Saints' success during her four seasons as a player. She was named the Midwest Christian College Conference's Most Valuable Player as a freshman, later became a two-time recipient of the NCCAA Division II Scholar-Athlete award, was a three-time all-region performer and an NCCAA Division II All-American as a freshman and sophomore.
As a sophomore, Frazier helped guide the Saints to their second MCCC regular season title in program history and a runner-up finish in the 2015 NCCAA Division II national tournament. A knee injury sidelined her for the first halves of her junior and senior seasons, but she went on to finish with 1,306 points in her career for third on the CCCB women's basketball all-time scoring list.
Additionally, the success in college came on the heels of helping Dexter High School to the Class 4 state championships as a senior.
The Central Christian women finished 10-17 overall and tied for third in the MCCC with a 4-4 record in 2017-18. Recruiting will be the highest priority starting out as the Saints endured the entire season with a thin roster.
Frazier graduated from CCCB in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science in Christian Counseling. In addition to coaching, she serves as a counselor in the admissions department at CCCB.
