Oct. 12, 2007
SEATTLE -- Washington women's basketball head coach Tia Jackson announced that Betsy Butterick has joined her staff as video coordinator. Butterick, a former collegiate player at Claremont McKenna in Southern California, comes to the Huskies after working with both the Seattle Storm and Stanford women's basketball programs.
'Betsy brings enthusiasm, energy and a well-rounded perspective to Washington,' Jackson said. 'Having spent time with the Seattle Storm and Stanford, she provides some great insight and understanding about the game. She will play a huge role in our scouting, highlight and motivational video production throughout the season. Her effort is one that greatly benefits our program.'
Butterick comes to the Huskies after serving as an equipment manager with the Seattle Storm for the 2007 season. Prior to that, she worked as an intern with the Stanford women's basketball program in 2006-07. A native of Los Altos, Calif., Butterick is a 2006 graduate from Claremont McKenna College where she played collegiate hoops. She was a two-time Best Defensive Player honoree and an all-conference selection, while leading the Athenas to consecutive 20-5 seasons.
Prior to attending Claremont McKenna, Butterick earned a full scholarship to play at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. She began her collegiate career at Foothill College from 2001-03, earning first-team all-conference honors as a freshman.
'I'd like to thank Coach Jackson and the University of Washington for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this program,' Butterick said. 'I am thrilled to be a part of the Husky family. Tia has done a tremendous job assembling her staff, and their combined talents, knowledge and experience will undoubtedly turn this program to being the Pride of the West. I can't say how exciting it is to work in a place filled with people who are so passionate about what they do, where they are, and the future of this program.'
