New Head Girls Basketball Coach Named

It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to our new Head Girls Basketball and Assistant Softball Coach, Shaunda Bedel.  Coach Bedel comes to us by way of Redemptorist Catholic where she served as Athletic Director, Head Basketball, and Head Softball Coach. 

Coach Bedel played basketball and softball collegiately at the University of Southwestern Louisiana (ULL). She has served as Athletic Director, Head Volleyball, Head Basketball, Head Softball, Assistant Cross Country, and Assistant Track and Field Coach with stops at USL, Crowley High School, Northside High School, Elizabeth High School, and Oakdale High School.  In fact, Coach Bedel took a struggling Elizabeth High School basketball team to the regional round within three years. 

We are truly blessed to have hired Coach Bedel. She has an outstanding background, is a true servant leader, and will be a great addition to our coaching staff. Anytime we hire a new coach, we make sure they are a Titus 2:7 coach. Coach Bedel has proven herself to be a coach of great integrity and dignity and I look forward to adding her to our WCA Athletics team.

Please join us in welcoming Coach Bedel at her Meet-and-Greet in the Opelousas Campus Multipurpose room Tuesday, June 12th, at 6pm. All students and parents are welcome, but a special invitation is extended to our girls who play (or are interesting in playing) basketball for Westminster Christian Academy regardless of age or campus.

"Being able to serve our risen Savior as I impact young women’s lives through sports, is my life’s goal. I am extremely excited to continue my career in coaching and teaching at Westminster Christian Academy. I look forward to hearing each student’s and athlete’s goal for their lives. Being an integral part of the team at WCA in leading God’s children as they learn through athletics is a mission I look forward to pursuing as the new Head Girls Basketball Coach and Assistant Softball Coach."
