We say re-introduce because Krista Gerlich is a former Lady Raider. She was known as Krista Kirkland when she played in the 1993 National Championship team coached by Marsha Sharp.

Gerlich has been the Coach at Texas-Arlington the last seven years.

Gerlich was born in Spearman and was a three time all-state selection in basketball while attending Sudan High School and Spearman High School.

Gerlich will replace Marlene Stollings, who was fired after allegations of a toxic environment where 12 players transferred out of the program.
