When Kathy McConnell-Miller took over the University of Colorado program just over two years ago, there’s no question the Buffaloes were rebuilding and the team was a work in progress. In two seasons at Colorado, progress is certainly a valid term for McConnell-Miller’s Buffaloes. McConnell-Miller sports a 22-38 record in her two seasons at Colorado and is 113-126 overall in eight seasons as an NCAA Division I head coach.
She led Colorado to a 13-17 mark in 2006-07, the team’s best record since the 2003-04 Buffaloes went 22-8 and advanced to the program’s last NCAA Tournament. Colorado also enjoyed its best Big 12 Conference showing in three years, tying Texas and Texas Tech for seventh in the league standings at 6-10. The Buffaloes’ six conference wins in 2006-07 were more than the previous two years combined (3-13 in 2005-06 and 2-14 in 2004-05).
Because of her determination and leadership skills, McConnell-Miller Colorado will be the keynote speaker at the next Women’s Chamber North Luncheon from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 5 at The Omni Interlocken Resort and Spa in Broomfield. The luncheon is $25 for CWCC members and $35 for non-members and walk-ins and is sponsored by Wise Women Communications. Register at www.cwcc.org/index.php/2008-1105.html.
