Winning and Marshall Women's Basketball have become synonymous over the last five years. For the first time in 20 years, the Thundering Herd has put together five straight .500 seasons or better. The upcoming 2008-09 season promises to be no exception as four starters, solid depth and a wealth of talented newcomers are set to step onto the Cam Henderson Center floor for Thundering Herd head coach Royce Chadwick.
The Herd has also lived up to the term "student-athlete" by placing five players on the Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Roll in 2008. In the past four years, several team members have completed their undergraduate degrees and played their final season while entering their Master's program.
The Locker Room Club has been an integral part of the success of the Marshall University women's basketball team by providing financial support and volunteer work. Summer school tuition, team travel, equipment and recruiting are areas in which the Locker Room Club has contributed funding to enhance the overall program.
The LRC Golf Scramble, Celebrity Chef Auction, Pancake Breakfast and "When I Grow Up" Career Day have all been a part of bringing the Tri-State community and the Herd together. Aside from fundraising events, the club and team participate in other events including pregame Chalk Talk, postgame socials, trips to road contests, the postseason banquet and numerous luncheons throughout the season.
People can make the difference in any endeavor and our Locker Room Club members have done just that.
