For the past 11 seasons, the Lady Raven basketball program has been helmed by Chad Folsom. Coach Folsom enters year 12 as the programs all-time winningest coach with a career coaching mark of 232-124. Under his leadership, the Lady Ravens have averaged 21-plus wins for 11 straight years.
He has been named the Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC) Coach of the Year twice and led the program to the NAIA Div. II National Championship Tournament in both 2005-'06 and 2007-'08.
Under his leadership, the Lady Ravens have not only become one of the most consistent programs in the HAAC on the floor but have become known as one of the top academic programs in the Midwest. He has coached 30 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes in his 11 years with the Ravens and his programs have consistently been named a NAIA Scholar Program carrying a team cumulative G.P.A. over a 3.20. Graduating from a small, liberal arts college, Coach Folsom understands the important balance of a quality education and athletics.
In 2011-12, the Ravens went 18-13 overall and 12-6 in the HAAC, eventually losing out to national-tournament qualifier MNU in the HAAC Tournament Quarterfinals.
Folsom’s 2005-2006 Lady Ravens’ squad set a school record for wins. The team finished the year 30-5, won the HAAC, won the post-season HAAC tournament, and reached the Elite Eight at the NAIA Division II National Tournament.
During his tenure, the program has earned 36 All-HAAC selections performers while he has coached three NAIA All-America selections.
