Ashland, Va. – Women's Basketball Head Coach Caroll LaHaye announced Thursday that Randolph-Macon alumnae Hannah Livermon will join her staff as an assistant coach ahead of the 2017-2018 season. Livermon, a 2016 R-MC graduate, played for the Yellow Jackets between 2012 and 2016.
Livermon recently completed her Masters of Education in Sports Leadership degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. There, she served as the VCU Women's Basketball Graduate Assistant Coach, helping to coach the Rams to a 16-15 overall record in 2016-2017.
"Having Hannah back in the program as an Assistant Coach will be a great opportunity for our team as well as me," LaHaye said. "I am especially grateful to Coach O'Boyle for giving her the advantage while a graduate student at VCU to be involved in several different aspects of a collegiate program. I look forward to Hannah's energy, enthusiasm, and desire to excel."
Prior to being hired at R-MC, Livermon worked for the CarMax Foundation assisting in the operation of the Foundation's summer basketball league and community projects. Livermon also coached and counseled for Duke Women's Basketball Camp and Randolph-Macon's basketball camps, teaching youth of all ages the skills needed for basketball.
During her time as an undergraduate at R-MC, Livermon also served in the athletics office as an assistant.
As a student-athlete for the Yellow Jackets, Livermon earned All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Second Team honors in 2015 and 2016, as well as All-Academic honors during her time with the College. Livermon was recognized as an ODAC Player of the Week during her senior year in November of 2015. She currently holds the 9th spot on the list of All-Time Scorers in R-MC history with 1,383 points scored during her career. She is also the All-Time Three Points Made record holder with 266 made three-pointers. Livermon served as vice president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee as well as appeared on the Dean's List and was honored with the Dean's Award.
"My experience as a student-athlete at Randolph-Macon was amazing," said Livermon. "Now, I am so excited to help ensure that the student-athletes I have the opportunity to coach have that same experience. I am so happy to be back at my alma mater, doing what I love to do most."
The Yellow Jackets compiled a record of 63-45 overall and 38-26 in the ODAC during Livermon's time with R-MC. The team also won the 2013-2014 ODAC title and competed in NCAA First Round play during Livermon's tenure.
