The White Plains Board of Education has confirmed that White Plains High School Girls Basketball legend Liz Flooks has submitted her papers and if approved by the board will be appointed the next WPHS Girls Varsity head basketball coach.
Flooks graduated from WPHS in 2007 after playing four years varsity basketball from 2003-’07 under former WPHS Head Coach Sue Adams.
Flooks won three consecutive Section 1 Championships with the Tigers from 2004 to 2007. Flooks also scored over 1,000 points during her Tigers career.
When the school board meets on Monday, Aug. 13, the Flooks appointment will be on the agenda for approval. If the board votes to approve Flooks and she accepts the position, the former Tigers standout will be the new coach.
Flooks would succeed Adams, whose storied career included four Section 1-AA Championships, four League Championships, and two New York State AA Eastern Regional Championships with a career-record of 160-86 in 11 seasons.
Flooks went on to have a stellar college-basketball career at Niagara University, from 2007 to 2011. The Purple Eagles guard earned MAAC All-Conference honors all four years she played at Niagara. Flooks became the 21st member of the Purple Eagles 1000-point Club on Dec. 10, 2010.
Flooks worked last season as an assistant coach for the Tigers Girls Basketball Team. She joined her mother Debbie Flooks, who tenured as an assistant coach under Adams for 11 years. Adams and the senior Flooks coached side-by-side their entire coaching careers at White Plains High School.
Flooks is very knowledgeable of the high-school girls basketball agenda and her steadfast work ethic throughout high school and college is renowned. Flooks is a determined winner who is also very familiar with the White Plains High School Girls Basketball Program.
The 24-year-old White Plains native will bring an excellent reputation and a history of winning to the WPHS Girls Basketball Team, which the young players can admire and respect.
