"Since I've been here, two years, all of the young ladies on the team have graduated," she said. This has been one of Kenlaw's primary goals for the team. While coaching the team to victories at the NCAA and NIT tournaments was a gratifying and important job, Kenlaw, one of only a few female African-American coaches, felt that it was more important to help each team player develop as an individual. "I want each young lady to walk away from the team with more than just the ability to play basketball. The basketball training gives the young ladies the discipline that will be useful after they leave the university," Kenlaw said. Discipline had never been a problem with Kenlaw. Growing up in Guiton, Georgia, around a brother who played basketball for Georgia Southern University, Kenlaw knew that she wanted to be involved with the teaching aspect of the sport early in her life. Although Kenlaw had played basketball with the Houston Angels, teaching remained her true love. Kenlaw began her coaching career as an assistant coach at Lamar High School. "Greg Williams, the athletic director at Lamar, believed in me. He recommended me for the position at UH." Kenlaw had never faced discrimination issues, as Williams believed in her and supported her completely. "I believe in taking one day at a time," Kenlaw said. While her much longed goal of leading the team to victory in the Southwest Conference had yet to be realized, the process was a slow one, she said, and one that was approached every day. While the Lady Cougars were a team, Kenlaw was concerned with each individual's improvement as a goal. This attitude of individual importance had led to success in the past, and if tenacity and dedication were a measure of future success, the Lady Cougars, led by Kenlaw, were heading for many seasons of victory on all courts, not just basketball. -Jenny Silverman Women's Basketball ###i 61
