Fallon Rehmert Named Assistant Women's Basketball Coach
SAVANNAH, Ga. - Armstrong Atlantic State University head women's basketball coach Matt Schmidt announced the addition of Fallon Rehmert to the Pirate coaching staff today as an assistant coach.
Rehmert joins Armstrong from Limestone College, where she served as an assistant coach for the 2011-12 season. Limestone earned its first NCAA Championships berth last season, going 25-7 overall, setting a school record for wins and capturing the Conference Carolinas regular season and tournament championships.
"We are thrilled to have Fallon join our coaching staff for the upcoming 2012-13 season," coach Schmidt said. "Fallon's ability to work with our guard play, particularly our point guards, will be a great asset with our current players. Her recruiting ties within the Southeast will help us bring great student-athletes to our women's basketball program for the years to come. She has proven to be a true professional, a tireless worker and a knowledgeable basketball coach in her short career."
Prior to Limestone, Rehmert served as the interim head coach for the women’s basketball team at Division III Oglethorpe University midway through the 2009-10 season after spending two years as the assistant women’s basketball coach for the Stormy Petrels.
A native of Gerald, Missouri, Rehmert earned her bachelor's degree in business administration from Maryville University in 2006, where she was a four-year standout for the Saints. As a student-athlete, she helped Maryville to three conference championships and three NCAA Division III tournament appearances, setting the single-season free throw percentage record (87%) while ranking sixth all-time in games played and fifth in career free-throw percentage.
Rehmert will complete her master's degree in sports management studies from California University of Pennsylvania this August.
After graduating from Maryville University, Rehmert served as a graduate assistant for her alma mater for one season, then moved to Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., serving as an assistant coach for one year before taking the assistant job at Oglethorpe University in 2007-08.
Remhert will begin her position with the Pirates immediately. Armstrong finished 14-14 in 2011-12 and returns nine players from last season's squad, including the nation's fourth-leading rebounder in junior forward Mauri Wells.
