Women's basketball head coach Stephanie Shaw resigns effective immediately

ALVA, Okla. - Director of Athletics, Andy Carter, has announced women's basketball coach Stephanie Shaw has resigned her post effectively immediately after one season at the helm of the Lady Rangers.

"To say I am disappointed would be an understatement. However, change is the one constant in this industry,” Carter said. “We will deal with this in a positive manner and continue to move forward toward our goal of building a championship caliber women’s basketball program"

Shaw went 13-15 during her tenure and led the Lady Rangers to the Sooner Athletic Conference Tournament. Northwestern fell 87-57 to No. 4 Lubbock Christian in the quarterfinal round.

During the 2011-12 season, two Lady Rangers, Autumn Klugh and Audrey Richmond, reached the 1000-point plateau for their careers.

Shaw also coached Richmond, Klugh and LaParis Newsom to all-conference seasons.

“By all measures, Stephanie did a very good job,” Carter said.  “We wish her well.”

Carter will begin a national search for the next Lady Ranger coach immediately.
