Helen Carroll inducted into UNCA Hall of Fame

New, 1 comment

This is a little late in coming, but the eternally modest Helen Carroll didn't let us know about it earlier this year, and I just stumbled across it. Helen (third from left) was inducted into the UNC Asheville Athletic Department's Hall of Fame in February, one of four people inducted. Above and beyond everything she's done with the NCLR Sports project, she also had quite a career at UNC Asheville.

Carroll guided UNC Asheville to the 1984 NAIA women's national basketball championship in her third and final season as head coach. The 1983-84 team finished with a 32-5 record, the best in the school's athletic history. She compiled a career record of 64-32 for a winning percentage of .667 that is still unmatched by any UNC Asheville coach.

A belated congratulations to Helen for this great honor!
