Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The ICC Cougars are making history, as they have won 21-straight games and hold a number one ranking for the first time since 2006.

“We’ve just tried to focus on everyday, just being great that day and trying really not worry about winning… Letting winning take care of it’s self,”says Head coach Karrie Redeker.

However, the dominance on the court is just a fraction of the team’s fight. In fact, coach Redeker has been in a battle against a opponent she’s never seen from the sidelines.

“Obviously the most difficult thing I have faced personally. Certainly everything that I have done as basketball coach and a basketball player to beat someone or something is what I used in my fight against cancer,” says Redeker.

Despite being diagnosis with stage 2-A Breast Cancer, coach Redeker has found her way back to the sidelines. Enjoy her inspiring story of perseverance.
