LINCOLN -- Britni%20Fett.jpg" style="width: 150px; float: left; height: 224px" />Britni Fett has been hired as the head women's basketball coach at Nebraska Wesleyan University.
Fett comes to Nebraska Wesleyan from Lakeland College, an NCAA Division III school in Plymouth, Wis., where she has served as the assistant women's basketball coach the past two seasons. During the 2012-13 season, Fett filled in the role of head coach at Lakeland for five games as the head coach was on maternity leave.
"I am very excited about Britni joining the coaching staff at Nebraska Wesleyan," NWU Athletic Director Ira Zeff said. "Her experience as a player in the GPAC (Sioux Falls 2003-07) as well as her coaching experience at a Division III institution make her a great fit to lead our women's basketball program. She will be a great role model for our players on and off the court."
While at Lakeland, the team went 30-22 the past two years qualifying for the NAC Conference Tournament each season. She also served as the head women's golf coach at Lakeland each of the last two years.
Fett, a Plankinton, S.D., native, spent two years as the graduate assistant women's basketball coach at Concordia University Wisconsin from 2008-10. As an assistant at Concordia, Fett was part of two conference championship teams, and helped lead the team to an appearance in the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2009.
Britni Fett attended the University of Sioux Falls where she was a member of the women's basketball program both as a player and student assistant coach. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Sioux Falls in 2008 and completed her Master's in Business Administration focusing in Management in 2010 at Concordia University Wisconsin.
Fett, who becomes the ninth coach in NWU women's basketball history, replaces Eric Jensen who resigned at the end of the 2012-13 season.
