Hall of Famer joins the Spartans coaching staff
The Spartans organization announces that Leslie Ritter Daley has joined our coaching staff. She will serve as an assistant coach focusing on skills development of the Spartans' players.
Leslie is a 2011 Athletic Hall of Fame inductee for the Johns Hopkins women's basketball program. The four years she played at Johns Hopkins remain the winningest four-year period in the history of their women's basketball program. She finished her stellar Hopkin’s career as one of only two players to record at least 1,300 points, 400 assists and 300 steals. Leslie also ranked among the top five in school history in career points (1,323), three pointers made (101) and attempted (393), assists (446) and steals (314).
Leslie is a former assistant coach and advisor for the Johns Hopkins women's basketball program. She also has been a volunteer coach for the Charles County Parks and Recreation teaching very young girls the fundamentals of basketball. "Leslie's commitment to fundamental development and winning meshes well with our organization. She insists that players are better served if they're dedicated to preparing themselves both physically and mentally for success. And we're happy to have Leslie join our already tremendous coaching staff" said Spartans President, Andre Copelin.
