MARION, IA (LMHS): Linn-Mar is very excited to introduce Jaime Printy as the new womens basketball coach, pending board approval. Coach Printy will be replacing Michael Brandt, who was the head coach the past 13 seasons for the Lions.
Coach Printy is no stranger to the game of basketball. She was a 1st team all-state player for 3 years at Linn-Mar and also was Gatorade Player of the Year in 2009. She then went on to the University of Iowa to play basketball.
As a Hawkeye, Jaime was a 4 year letterwinner & starter for Coach Lisa Bluder. She was named 2010 Big Ten Freshman of the Year and was a four-time All-Big Ten Selection & three-time Academic All-Big Ten. Jaime was also named to the Associated Press All-American team in 2011. She helped the Hawkeyes advance to the NCAA tournament all four years.
Jaime graduated from the University of Iowa in May of 2013 with a degree in Recreation & Sports Business but currently is now going back to school to get her education degree.
Coach Printy served as an assistant coach at Linn-Mar during the 2013-2014 season.
We are very excited to have Jaime here at Linn-Mar, says Associate Athletic Director Tonya Moe. Jaime may not have the years of experience as a head coach but she possesses every other quality we want here at Linn-Mar. She knows the game, is a tremendous role model, and knows how to relate to kids. She will be a tremendous mentor to them and is extremely passionate about coaching. Jaime will work hard to make the Linn-Mar program very competitive as she is very level headed and wise beyond her years.
We are excited about the opportunities both for our womens basketball program and our athletic department as a whole with the addition of Coach Printy to our staff.
