By CSU Athletics | April 19, 2024

After earning the No. 2 seed in the Big South Tournament and winning the program’s first conference title in 14 years, first-year Head Coach Chan Metts was named Big South Women’s Coach of the Year. The conference announced this on Thursday.
 
Metts led the Buccaneers to a nail-biting victory in the Big South semifinals against No. 4 Longwood on Wednesday followed by a victory over USC Upstate in the championship. This season, he picked up his first tournament victory in his head coaching career with a victory in the Pine Tree Intercollegiate in Kennesaw, GA back on March 25.
 
In nine of the 10 tournaments that the team has played in, they placed in the top 10 overall. In five of those tournaments, they placed in the top five. Metts was also pivotal in the development of Odette Font, who medaled twice this season, as well as five players who received All-Conference honors.
 
To cap off this season, Metts will lead Charleston Southern to their first NCAA Regional appearance since 2010. The Bucs will find out where they will be playing on Wednesday, April 24. The NCAA Regionals begin on Monday, May 6.
