From the Court with Coach Mittie

TEAM RETURNS
After a good summer of workouts and a three-week break for most of our group, they arrived back on campus this past weekend ready for school and ready to build off the last season.  
 
NEW STAFF
I was pleased to be able to hire Micaëlla Riché in a full-time capacity in the role of Coordinator of Recruiting Operations, and also Chris Carr as Director of Student-Athlete Development. They will also be my teammates in any athletic department 3-on-3 hoops tournaments! Get to know Micaëlla here. Read about Chris and watch him in the 1997 NBA Slam Dunk Contest here.
 
STRENGTH UPDATE
The team shattered many records this summer in the strength and conditioning area. New full-time strength coach AJ Kloss did a fantastic job with our group. Learn more about AJ here.
 
GET YOUR TICKETS
As of August, our season ticket numbers are up ten percent from last season's totals. With UCONN and Auburn as well as the Big 12 slate, I believe we can do better than this. Let’s make a big push this fall! Click here to purchase 2016-17 season tickets. Watch the 2016-17 season ticket commercial here.

GROWING UP A WILDCAT
Some of our players grew up around the K-State women's basketball program from a very young age. Watch this great feature from K-StateHD.TV about how they have enjoyed becoming the next in line in the great Wildcat women's basketball tradition.

EMPTY NESTERS
Shanna and I are officially empty nesters as of last Thursday when we took Madison to FHSU.  This of course doesn’t include the 14 18-22 year-olds that we semi-adopt every year.
