NEAC Coaches Corner: Gallaudet University

GallaudetGANSEVOORT, N.Y. – Throughout the spring, the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) will highlight a coach and student-athlete from each of our member institutions in a brief Q & A. Today’s Coaches Corner puts the spotlight on Gallaudet University women’s basketball head coach Stephanie Stevens and student-athlete Emelia Beldon.

Coach Stephanie Stevens just completed her sixth season at Gallaudet University as the head coach of the women’s basketball program. Since taking over the team in July 2012, Stevens has posted 67-89 record and led the Bison to four appearances in the NEAC tournament. After an off-year in 2016-17, Stevens guided her squad to a remarkable turnaround this past season as the Bison compiled a 13-14 overall record. Gallaudet earned the No. 2 seed in the South Division with an 8-4 mark in divisional play and advanced to the NEAC Semifinals.

Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) is a rookie guard for the Bison and is coming off a year in which she appeared in 27 games and scored 221 points. Beldon averaged 8.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in a solid first season. She led all NEAC players with 153 assists and ranked 11th in the league with 54 steals. Beldon’s exceptional play was recognized by her institution when she was named the January 2018 Female Bison of the Month.
