Kim Cameron begins her second season at Tech, fresh off of becoming the first Division II head coach in Michigan Tech history to lead a team to a national championship game in 2011. Tech's historic run through the NCAA Tournament came just months after Cameron was appointed to the position on June 17, 2010.
The 2011 GLIAC and WBCA Midwest Region Coach of the Year put together a 2010-11 team that vastly exceeded all expectations. Not only did the Huskies compile a 31-3 record (.912 winning percentage), they did so with a group of players that began the season with a combined 12 games of starting experience between them.
Tech won the GLIAC North Division with a
school-record-best .947 winning percentage (18-1) before claiming
the GLIAC Tournament title. The Huskies also won a third
consecutive NCAA Midwest Regional crown before defeating No.
1-ranked Arkansas Tech and No. 18-ranked Northwest Missouri State
at the Elite Eight. Along the way, Cameron's 2010-11 team set
school records for consecutive wins (18) and home wins (18).
Prior to Cameron being named head coach, she
spent five years as assistant coach, helping the Huskies to 119
wins and two NCAA Elite Eight appearances. She coordinated the
program's recruiting, scouting and travel during that time, and the
Huskies won 76.8 percent of their games, claimed three Great Lakes
Intercollegiate Athletic Conference North Division titles, advanced
to the NCAA Tournament four times and cut down the nets for two
NCAA Midwest Regional Championships.
Cameron graduated from Michigan Tech in 2005
with a bachelor's degree in business administration. The Alpena,
Mich., native earned four letters as a player for the Huskies from
2001-05, helping the squad to a 71-42 record in her four years and
a trip to the NCAA Tournament as a senior.
She is the eighth head coach in the program's
