3-Minute Interview: Trisha Hosley

The first-year coach guided the reborn Skyline College women’s basketball team to its first playoff victory a week ago today before losing Saturday to second-seeded Fresno 78-53 in the second round of the state junior-college playoffs. Hosley, an assistant last year under Brittany Lindhe, guided the Trojans to an 18-13 record after they posted a 14-14 mark in their return season last year. Skyline brought back women’s basketball after a hiatus of about 30 years.

What were your expectations for this season? I haven’t had expectations. We had a lot of returning sophomores for leadership and incoming freshmen with a lot of potential. My big goal was just to win more games last year — specifically three more games — and we did that.

What was the difference between last season, when the program was just starting, and this season? Nobody knew last year who should step up. Now, we’re a tight family.

What was the best thing about this season? Just for me to be a head coach, I just love it. It’s been a great experience and an amazing opportunity to do what I love. To get to the playoffs has been a bonus. I think it will sink inlater what we achieved in making the playoffs.

What was the toughest thing about starting a program? There were no traditions here or anything. Usually the sophomore class gets to carry on the traditions. There has been more of that this year.

Who have been the key players for you? Marie Colon has been a superstar. It’s been amazing. She was our leading scorer all year. She’s never come out of a game. She’s been excellent for the program. Her and Esmeralda Lopez-Rivas really put us on the map.
