Arledge Inducted Into NGU Athletic Hall of Fame
Tigerville, SC – (January 24, 2019) Former Head Women’s Basketball Coach and current Senior Women’s Administrator Jayne Arledge added the title “Hall of Famer” to her impressive resume in January as she was inducted into the North Greenville University Athletic Hall of Fame.
Arledge began her coaching career at North Greenville in 1981, serving as the coach for the women’s basketball team as well as the North Greenville volleyball team. Her stint as volleyball coach ended in 1996, but not before notching five “Coach of the Year” nods, two Region X Tournament titles, two conference titles, and two trips to the National Junior College Athletic Association national tournament.
Her tenure as women’s basketball coach was even more decorated as she guided the Crusaders to three WCJC championships, three NCCAA Southeast Region championships, and four NCCAA tournament appearances including a second-place finish in 2005. During that time, Arledge coached several All-Conference players, seven All-Americans, four All-Tournament players, and six Academic All-Americans.
Arledge was no stranger to success on the court as a player. The former Enka High School graduate was awarded a basketball scholarship to attend Western Carolina University, the first athletic grant in aid awarded to a female at Western Carolina. Arledge went on to re-write the WCU record book, setting seven school records including points in a career with 1,928, points scored in a season with 544, and career scoring average with 19.5 points per game. The Catamounts inducted her into the WCU Hall of Fame in 1992 and retired her number 25 in 2006.
She received this honor at a luncheon in January where she was recognized by NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr. as well as Athletic Director Jan McDonald. In attendance for the ceremony were former players, friends, and family members. She was also recognized at halftime of the women’s basketball game later that afternoon.
