Colonial Athletic Association women’s basketball coaches Ann Hancock (UNC Wilmington), Krista Kilburn-Steveskey (Hofstra), Wendy Larry (Old Dominion), and Debbie Taylor (William & Mary) teamed up on Monday, Sept. 12 to take part in the second annual 4KayTM Golf Classic, presented by Nike, at the Grandover Resort and Golf Course in Greensboro, N.C.

"The second annual 4KayTM Golf Classic was an awesome event for a truly worthwhile cause," said Hancock. "It was really amazing to see so many people in our industry take time out of their busy schedules to donate their time and resources. I was also impressed with the ability of what is an ultra-competitive group of people to put their differences aside and come together to raise money for the cause."

Larry expressed, “For the second year in a row, we have had a national basketball coaches reunion focused on raising resources for the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Foundation and playing golf together. As one of the founding tournament participants, I thought it would be awesome for the Colonial Athletic Association to be represented by an entire TEAM in the tournament field this year. The tournament was held in Greensboro, at the beautiful Grandover Resort and Spa that offered two championship golf courses. Kay’s hometown is located just minutes from the Grandover. Team CAA was well represented by Krista Kilburn-Steveskey, a former player of Kay’s, Debbie Taylor, Ann Hancock and myself. It is my hope that CAA representation will continue to grow on a yearly basis.”

Taylor added, “Team CAA had a great day supporting a great cause! We were very proud to represent the Colonial Athletic Association in joining coaches from all across the country in support of the Kay Yow WBCA Cancer Fund.”

“The 4Kay Yow Golf Classic was a successful and rewarding event,” said Kilburn-Steveskey. “It was an honor and a privilege for me to be a part of a golf classic that paid tribute to Coach Yow and I am so glad that I was able to attend.  Being a former player has extra special meaning for me and that is why the ‘Think Pink’ program and 4 Kay Yow Golf Classic is very important.” 

Over 150 women's basketball coaches, administrators and supporters took part in the event that raised more than $175,000 for the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund®.  The organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women's cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause. The Fund is named in honor of former North Carolina State women's basketball coach Kay Yow, who passed away in February 2009 after a lengthy battle with Breast Cancer.

The CAA women’s basketball programs have been active participants in the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund® initiative, hosting an annual "Pink Zone" contest during the WBCA's yearly dedicated window to raise money and awareness for the fund.
