ATLANTA (March 26, 2013)--Sacred Heart Women's Basketball Head Coach Ed Swanson named a 2013 RUSSELL ATHLETIC/WBCA Victory Club Award recipient Tuesday morning. The award is presented annually to each WBCA-member head coach who achieves career wins of 200, 300, 400, 500 or more, in 100-victory increments, during the current season. 

On February 12, 2013, the Sacred Heart Women's Basketball team earned Swanson his 400th career victory by defeating Fairleigh Dickinson 80-48 at home in the William H. Pitt Center. 

"Every team requires a leader, "said RUSSELL ATHLETIC Senior Vice President Gary Barfield. "This year's Victory Club members are just that – dedicated leaders who are focused on making both their student-athletes and themselves better. We are proud to honor these coaches."

These accomplished coaches will be formally recognized during the third annual WBCA Awards Show, which will be held at 5 p.m. CT Monday, April 8, in New Orleans.  This event is part of the WBCA National Convention and is held in conjunction with the NCAA® Women's Final Four®.
