WILLIAMSTOWN -After proving that a girl from a small town in West Virginia could start and make an impact at an NCAA Division III basketball program, former Williamstown High School all-stater Anne Seufer is back in the area looking to help others attain the dream she lived.
"It (coaching) is a dream I've had for a long time," explained Seufer, who is back in Williamstown spending time with her parents and friends and working at local camps. "I've applied for jobs in hopes that things will work out."
Seufer's resume is an impressive one to say the least.
A four-year letterwinner for head coach Fred Sauro's Yellowjackets, Seufer helped the maroon and gold to the Class A state title in 2003 and a semifinal appearance in the 2004 state tournament.
Along the way the sharpshooting guard attained all-state and all-Little Kanawha Conference selection, participated in the 2006 Battle Against Cystic Fibrosis Classic and left WHS holding school records in most 3-pointers in a game (9), most 3-pointers in a season and most 3-pointers in a career.
Outsiders, however, still questioned if the 5-foot, 9-inch guard could replicate those kinds of numbers on the college level. Four years later Seufer's numbers speak for themselves.
The Williamstown native played in 103 games for the Quakers-93 starts-and scored 1,027 points (10 ppg) during her tenure at the Greensboro, N.C.-based school.
But, like she did for the Yellowjackets, Seufer etched her name in the record book for the Old Dominion Athletic Conference member, establishing new career marks in three-pointers made (227) and attempted (717) while also raising the bar 3-pointers made in a game (8) and a season (62).
Her .317 three-point percentage ranks seventh in school history while her 1,027 points ranks her 15th among Guilford's all-time scoring leaders.
"I always dreamed about playing in college," added Seufer, who earned all-ODAC second team honors following the Quakers' 14-12 (11-9 ODAC) 2009-10 campaign. "I never thought I would have such a good time."
Seufer graduated in May with a major in Business Management and a minor in Sports Administration and Money and Finance with hopes of using those credentials, as well as the ones she earned on the basketball court, to lure a coaching job on the collegiate level.
"The coaching I have received during my career, I believe, has helped me understand the game in such a way that I can coach," said the player. "My love of the game will always be there and my competitiveness will only help me in my coaching."
Anne Seufer is the youngest of four children-Beth (32), Chris (30) and Diane (28)-of Marty and Barb Seufer.
