Coach
Georgia, 1992
Fifth Season
Adrienne Shuler begins her fifth season as the head women’s basketball coach
at Appalachian State University, after successful collegiate playing and coaching careers, as well as a stint in the WNBA.
During the 2005-06 campaign, Shuler
led the Mountaineers to their second-most
conference wins in a season in school history, and the 13th-most overall wins in school
history, as the team compiled a 15-13 overall record and 11-7 Southern Conference
mark. Appalachian’s fourth-place finish in
the league was its highest since finishing
third during the 1996-97 season.
Shuler’s fourth season was filled with
numerous team and individual milestones,
as the team shattered the school record for
steals in a season with 359 and finished the
season ranked third in the nation with 12.8
steals per game.
Shuler also guided Kiki Conyers to becoming the 17th player in school history to
score 1,000 points in her career as she ended her career ranked ninth in school history
with 1,211 points. Conyers also earned allSoCon honors.
In her third season at the helm for
Appalachian (2004-05), Shuler guided her
Mountaineer squad to an 11-17 record. The
11 wins marked the most since the Mountaineers finished the 1999-2000 season 1315. In 2003-04, Shuler’s squad posted a 7-21
record, including a 6-14 mark in conference
play.
In her first season as a head coach in
2002-03, Shuler led Appalachian to a 9-19
record and an 8-10 finish in SoCon play. The
Mountaineers’ eight league victories marked
a three-game improvement from the previous campaign and the squad’s most SoCon
wins since the 1999-2000 campaign. Among
the season highlights, Conyers was named
SoCon Freshman of the Year.
Shuler was appointed to the head
coaching position on April 21, 2002, becoming the sixth head coach in Appalachian’s
32-year women’s basketball history. She is
the fourth coach since the Southern Conference began declaring a women’s basketball
champion.
Previous to taking over the Appalachian program, Shuler spent seven seasons
