KATIE BURROWS

ASSISTANT COACH • THIRD SEASON I believe that God has given us all certain abilities/gifts to use throughout our lives. For me, it was the knowledge and skill to play, and now coach, the game of basketball. I was very fortunate to get to play at the collegiate level, travel the U.S. and meet lots of people who are now my closest friends. I continue to be a part of this great game so that I can help others to have the same wonderful experiences that I did growing up. It fills the competitive void that I would have otherwise lost when my playing career was over. I feel so blessed that I am now getting the opportunity to coach the Lady Mocs, competing for championships year in and year out. After a four-year stint as a player for Wes Moore, Katie Burrows begins her third season on the bench as an assistant

coach for the Lady Mocs. Katie joined Wes Moore’s team in his third season at UTC and was an integral member of a squad that won four straight Southern Conference regular season titles and SoCon Tournament crowns. In her time at UTC, the Lady Mocs posted an overall record of 102-23 with wins over such teams as Florida State, Alabama and Louisville. The Lady Mocs advanced to the postseason all four years including three NCAA championships. In her senior year, the Lady Mocs posted the nation's longest active winning streak at 27 games culminating with UTC's NCAA first-round win over Rutgers. In that game, Burrows (Galloway) sank the most memorable shot in Chattanooga history nailing a 30-foot bank shot from the right side sparking a comeback that led to a 74-69 win over the Scarlet Knights. Katie earned a spot as one of Moore's Top 10 players in UTC's celebration of "Moore in McKenzie, a Decade of Dominance". She ranks in the top 10 in UTC history in 3-pointers made with 107 and 3-pointers attempted with 315. Prior to arriving at UTC, Burrows was a coach and teacher at Ringgold High School. She took over a Ringgold program that had won just three games in year prior to her arrival. The Lady Tigers steadily increased their win total in each of her three seasons culminating in Ringgold’s first state playoff appearance since 1986 when the team lost to Rossville in the Class AAA finals. Prior to that she was the head coach of the girl’s basketball team at Tullahoma (Tenn.) High School from 2005-07 and taught health and physical education. Immediately following her graduation from UTC she was the assistant girls basketball coach at GPS from 2004-05 under former UTC player Susan Lance Crownover. Katie attended Lookout Valley High School where she was named the Chattanooga Times Free Press Best of Preps Female Athlete of the Year and was a four-time first team Chattanooga Times Free Press All-City and three-time Region Player of the Year and first team all-state. She was named a Tennessee Class A Miss Basketball finalist in back-to-back seasons. Katie learned her trade at an early age from her father Joe Galloway who was her high school coach.
