Rikki Passes the Torch
Women’s Basketball Head Coach Rikki Bowles will be pursing her dream, as she will be a full time university coach next Fall 2018-2019. We wish Rikki the best of luck!!
The Athletics Department is very happy to announce that Assistant Coach Francois René will lead the Cheetahs as their new Head Coach after serving one year as an assistant coach. Francois (seen at center in the photo below) is dedicated, passionate, extremely hardworking, and knowledgeable. This was an easy transition for us, and we believe that the coaching staff hired will continue the progress that the women’s team has made this past year.
Francois will be counting on his assistant coach Dianna Ros (seen at left in the photo below) who will be back on the staff. Dianna is an important member as her experience, passion, expertise and winning mentality pushes the Cheetahs every day. The Cheetahs will add alumna and former McGill Martlet Carissa Tapia to their coaching staff. Carissa (seen at right in the photo below) is dynamic, diligent, and excited to be back at Vanier as an assistant coach. Welcome back to the Cheetah family, Carissa. We wish you lots of success!
