Katie Adams became the newest addition to the Bucknell women's basketball staff, joining the team in July of 2011. Among Adams' responsibilities are working with Bucknell's backcourt and heading the program's community service efforts.
A 2008 graduate of Rutgers University with a degree in exercise science and psychology, Adams has amassed a wealth of coaching experience at several camps and at the helm of the South Amboy High School squad in New Jersey. While at South Amboy from 2008-10, her teams finished second in the league's gold division and advanced to the state playoffs both seasons. Also in 2010, Adams ran a basketball camp in Ireland for youth ages 7 to 17 after coaching a U11 team for the Central Jersey Cardinals AAU. Adams' coaching experience also includes a stint with Hoop Group and NBS Basketball Camps from 2008-09. She was also the strength and conditioning intern at Rutgers in 2008.
During her tenure as a student-athlete at Rutgers, Adams helped the Scarlet Knights to a national championship game in 2007, the Elite Eight in 2005 and 2008 and the Sweet 16 in 2006. A native of Ogden, Utah, she received Rutgers' Most Inspirational Player award from 2005-07 as well as the Women's Sports Foundation's Wilma Rudolf Courage Award and the College Council Leadership Award in 2007. A year later, she added the team's Coaches' Award and Scholar-Athlete honor to her resume while serving as a captain. Adams later went on to play semi professional basketball with the New Jersey Thunder (2007-08) and New Jersey Fusion (2008-09).
Most recently, Adams worked with individuals with disabilities at Ark Regional Services in Laramie, Wyo., where she was also pursuing a degree in secondary math education at the University of Wyoming.
