Women's Basketball History

UW-Rock County basketball dates back to 1966 when the team began under the direction of a student coach. Pete Mory, physical education professor, coached the team from 1967-73. The team practiced at the Janesville Armory and played games at Franklin Middle School.

In 1974, Coach Williams became head coach when Mory decided to devote time to beginning a soccer team at UW-Rock County. Practice and games were held at Milton College or the Boys Club in Beloit.

In the 1980s, practice was held at Wilson Elementary School and games at Edison Middle School. In 1982, Mark Neuman, math professor, became head coach and construction was completed on Wells Cultural Center. A gymnasium on the lower level of the new building was opened and became home to UW-Rock County athletic teams.

In the early 1990s, Coach Gibbs led the team to two conference championships and one state championship. State budget strains in the mid-'90s led to the discontinuation of the basketball program.

In the 2003-04 season, basketball was welcomed back to UW-Rock County under the direction of head coach John Livsey. Livsey coached through the 2006-07 season.

New in 2007 was Scott Lee, head basketball coach for both the men's and the newly formed women's teams.  Coach Lee led the Rattlers to many successful seasons prior to his resignation in 2016.
