BREAKING: Vaughan to lead Maiden girls hoops

Amber Vaughan will lead the Maiden girls basketball program this winter.

The former Lenoir-Rhyne standout replaces Katie Chapman, who coached the Lady Blue Devils for the past four season.

Chapman had a 24-72 career record, including 10-46 mark in conference games.

Maiden had received 15 résumés as of April 19, which included applicants from around the area, in the state of North Carolina and out-of-state candidates.

Vaughan, a graduate of Pulaski County High School in Dublin, Va., played for Lenoir-Rhyne from 1999 to 2003.

She is only one of 17 women in the Lady Bears basketball program to record 1,000 points in her college career.

She has the 10th highest career field goal percentage in school history (.505) and has the ninth-highest field goal percentage in a season (56.1 in 1999-00).

Vaughan earned South Atlantic Conference All-Freshman team honors in the 1999-00 season.

She is married to Bill Vaughan, a teacher and defensive coordinator for the football team at Maiden High School. They have two children — a 7-year-old son, Landon, and a 5-year-old daughter, Lexi.
