Though Sheryl Swoopes’ professional future is uncertain after being cut by the Seattle Storm this week, she is having an amazing time this year coaching the Overlake School’s basketball team of seventh- and eighth-graders. So far, Swoopes’ Redmond team is 4-2.
This has worked out unbelievably well for Swoopes, who gets as much from this experience as the girls on her team. Besides playing for the Storm, she always thought there was another reason why she came to Seattle. Hard to believe she found it at this little school off Old Redmond Road.
Funny, but coaching changed my life course too. We’ll see what happens with Coach Swoopes, but I hope it’s good things.
