Mitchell On Track for Olympics Someday?
MU Coach Now Has National Team Experience
By Rick Rietbrock
Terri Mitchell loves her job at Marquette, but coaching Team USA would be a dream. Helping the "Under-18" team win gold in Argentina last month, Terri is helping to build the future. "These are the kid, the young women, that are going to be the future olympians one day," says Mitchell. Mitchell also knows Marquette helped her gain national exposure. "They're not just calling anyone, which says something about Marquette, the reputation of our university and our team," says Mitchell. "What we were able to do with a young team, I think they look at that and figure I know how to relate to a young team." And already winning gold means she's on track for more. "As an athlete might say 'Out of this group, some will be selected for the Olympics,' I think you have to look at it the same way as a coach.
