The Board of Trustees approved a new Fresno City College Rams Women’s Basketball coach in their July meeting. Merced Native and FCC alumnus Alex Fletcher will coach the team this fall, according to Kathy Bonilla, the Public Information Officer.

“Alex brings a level of understanding and passion for the game that we believe will continue the success we have enjoyed in the past,” Pamm Zierfuss-Hubbard, Director of Athletics, said.

Fletcher was a men’s basketball player from 2009-2011, a time when the Rams won two league titles and a trip to the state Final Hour. In 2010, Fletcher was a First Team All-League selection in the Central Valley Conference, a Kiwanis Torch of Excellence Torch Lighter Award recipient and, when he transferred to the University of Lethbridge in Alberta Canada, he was a three-year team captain, according to Bonilla.

He spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Lethbridge, and was the acting head coach in the 2016-2017 season. He was also an assistant coach at FCC for one year, according to Bonilla.

Fletcher will replace former head coach Brian Tessler, who retired this year.

About the Writer
Tommy Tribble, Editor-in-Chief

Tommy Tribble is the 24-year-old editor-in-chief of The Rampage, formerly the opinion editor. Tommy is an English major, a writer, an aspiring novelist, and a Capricorn. He’s talented, or whatever, but mostly he’s just tired.

Tommy’s passion in life is storytelling. He always imagined that passion would take shape as the dragons and swords of fantasy novels, or the androids and supernovas of science fiction. He was shocked to discover that his career at Fresno City College would lead him to fulfill the dream in another way: documenting the lives and experiences of students. Journalism, pure and simple.

Tommy hopes his tenure as EIC will mean a Rampage that is queer, colorful, and welcoming to people of all kinds, especially the marginalized and the forgotten. He wants his legacy to be radical inclusivity.

So basically he’s gonna wing it.

He has an orange cat named Sora, and he’s working every day to buy him even nicer cat food and toys, and one day an apartment of their own.
