LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Marsha Sharp has been named the 65th Annual Lubbock Woman of the Year by Altrusa International, Inc. of Lubbock.

In her 24 seasons (1982-2006) as head coach of the Texas Tech Lady Raiders Marsha Sharp had a career record of 572-189 and led her team to eight conference championships, ten sweet 16 appearances, four elite 8's, and a national championship in 1993. She was named National Coach of the Year in 1993 and 1994 and SWC/Big 12 Coach of the year 7 times. She was inducted into the Texas Women's Hall of Fame in 1999, the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 2000, the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in 2003, and the Texas Panhandle Sports Hall of Fame in 2008. Despite all her successes on the court, Coach Sharp holds her players' academic achievements above all else, having ended her coaching career with a nearly perfect player graduation rate.

Awarded the Lauro F. Cavazos award from the Texas Tech Alumni Association, Sharp was honored from Texas Tech by being named Head Coach Emeritus. In the fall of 2004 Coach Sharp added author to her list of accomplishments as her book titled Tall Enough to Coach became a regional bestseller.

At Texas Tech, she is currently an Associate Athletic Director and oversees the Marsha Sharp Leadership Circle. As a sought after speaker, consultant, and team building expert, she continues to promote the topics of gender equity, civility, ethics, and leadership for coaching staffs, athletic teams, and corporations.

The banquet honoring Coach Sharp will be held at Lubbock Women's Club on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 6:30 PM with a reception and dinner.
