Head Coach Georgia, 1992 Fifth Season

Adrienne Shuler begins her fifth season as the head women’s basketball coach at Appalachian State University, after successful collegiate playing and coaching careers, as well as a stint in the WNBA. During the 2005-06 campaign, Shuler led the Mountaineers to their second-most conference wins in a season in school history, and the 13th-most overall wins in school history, as the team compiled a 15-13 overall record and 11-7 Southern Conference mark. Appalachian’s fourth-place finish in the league was its highest since finishing third during the 1996-97 season. Shuler’s fourth season was filled with numerous team and individual milestones, as the team shattered the school record for steals in a season with 359 and finished the season ranked third in the nation with 12.8 steals per game. Shuler also guided Kiki Conyers to becoming the 17th player in school history to score 1,000 points in her career as she ended her career ranked ninth in school history with 1,211 points. Conyers also earned allSoCon honors. In her third season at the helm for Appalachian (2004-05), Shuler guided her Mountaineer squad to an 11-17 record. The 11 wins marked the most since the Mountaineers finished the 1999-2000 season 1315. In 2003-04, Shuler’s squad posted a 7-21 record, including a 6-14 mark in conference play. In her first season as a head coach in 2002-03, Shuler led Appalachian to a 9-19 record and an 8-10 finish in SoCon play. The Mountaineers’ eight league victories marked a three-game improvement from the previous campaign and the squad’s most SoCon wins since the 1999-2000 campaign. Among the season highlights, Conyers was named SoCon Freshman of the Year. Shuler was appointed to the head coaching position on April 21, 2002, becoming the sixth head coach in Appalachian’s 32-year women’s basketball history. She is the fourth coach since the Southern Conference began declaring a women’s basketball champion. Previous to taking over the Appalachian program, Shuler spent seven seasons
