A Day in the Life: Coretta Brown

Hi Sky fans!

Greetings from Atlanta, where I, Coretta Brown, work as an administrative assistant for the Georgia Tech Womens Basketball Team. Ironically I had already moved to Atlanta last summer when I got the call from Coach Cowens to join the Sky. I was surprised, so I gladly packed up my things and went to Chicago.

It was really exciting for me in Chicago because the fans were so unbelievably supportive and thrilled to finally have a WNBA team in town. Likewise, the city of Chicago is beautiful in the summer and a great place to live.

I had a pretty great summer playing for the Sky while also returning to Atlanta after our season was over to begin working on Georgia Techs upcoming season. And now that we are in the full swing of the collegiate season my days are very long. I go to work every day no later than 8am, sometimes as early as 7am. From 7am to 12pm I do office work and prepare for our practice. We have a coaches meeting at 1pm and practice starts at 2pm.

A trip to the weight room follows practice on lifting days, a must for me in-order to stay in shape. Our schedule is subject to change and yes, I do work weekends! I enjoy being an assistant at Georgia Tech because I get to be around the game of basketball. To me it doesnt get any better than that. I love sharing my knowledge of the game with the athletes here at our program.

Well, I have to go to our staff meeting! Ill see all of you Sky fans on December 18 when Georgia Tech takes on Northwestern up in Evanston.
