PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After a very successful tenure as the head varsity girls basketball coach at Archbishop Ryan High School, Jackie Hartzell has moved on to the college level – but stayed in the city. This week Hartzell was named the new women’s coach at Division II University of the Sciences.
“I’m a Philly girl. I’ve been at Archbishop Ryan for five years, and I feel like I’m ready for the next challenge,” Hartzell told KYW Newsradio during a Thursday afternoon visit. “I went down to the school and I loved everything about it. The athletic director and everyone else on the interview committee just made me feel really comfortable there. So, from the first time I went down there, I felt like it was the right fit for me.”
