Approaching 1,000 Program Wins
During its 46 years as a program, the Green Bay women’s basketball team has accumulated a total of 998 victories. During those 46 seasons, three head coaches have graced the sidelines for the Phoenix, starting with Carol Hammerle in the 1973-74 campaign. Hammerle led the program for 25 seasons and accumulated 456 wins before passing the torch to Kevin Borseth in 1998-99, who would go on to lead the Phoenix for 16 total seasons in two separate stints leading up to our present campaign. Borseth has racked up 394 wins with the Phoenix and continues to add to that number with each passing game. Matt Bollant took the reins from 2007-12, amassing 148 victories in five seasons and leading the program to an appearance in the Sweet Sixteen.
