Lutheran West has announced that Trey Senney ’02 has officially stepped down from his position as Head Coach of the Women’s Basketball Program. Coach Senney took the reins of the Women’s Program in the 2014-2015 season. In his six seasons as Head Coach, the program has accumulated 108 wins. Under his leadership, the Longhorns earned three straight Patriot Athletic Conference Championships in 2016-17, 2017-2018, and 2018-2019 while advancing to the District Championship game in 2017 and 2018.
While the successes on the court are evident, Senney also built a strong culture of servant leadership. The program was heavily involved with Empower Sports and the NubAbility Athletics Foundation, donating time and raising money to benefit both organizations. Under Senney’s leadership, the program always represented Lutheran West in a first-class manner with professionalism and dignity.
“I have loved my time with the women’s program and the people that have been a part of it while I have been involved, both players and coaches. It’s a special program & one that I will always feel connected to. It’s the right time to step away from being the head coach to focus my energy on my family and work responsibilities. This was a really challenging decision for me & something I struggled with throughout this past year. Stepping down is never easy, but this was the right time for my family and I to step away.”
Lutheran West Athletic Director Ryan Miller says:
“On behalf of the Lutheran West Athletic Department I would like to thank Coach Senney and his family for their commitment to the Women’s Basketball Program. While Coach Senney certainly had success from a wins and losses standpoint, more importantly he was able to do so while committing to the Christian values which serve as the foundation of our school. Our student-athletes have certainly benefited from his leadership as basketball players and young women. While he won’t be on our bench in the future, his impact and legacy will continue to shape our program for the better and will carry on for years to come.”
A search for the next Women’s Head Coach will begin immediately.
