Coaches’ Profile: Traverse City West’s Amy Drake

TRAVERSE CITY – Traverse City West girls basketball team is welcoming a new head coach, but Amy Drake is already familiar with the program.

Drake has been helping the Titans for the last three years, and when Doug Baumann decided to step down, she made the decision to step up.

Basketball has always been a passion for Drake.

She played for Leland before taking her talents to the collegiate level and playing for Northern Michigan University.

Drake says she is excited for this season and the fun that comes with being head coach.

“It will be fun to be able to run whatever systems I want and I would really like the girls to be able to just play. The pasta parties, the team get togethers and that kind of stuff I think will be fun,” said Drake.

The Titans finished 13-10 last year.
