St. Aloysius announced K.K. Willis as the new girl’s basketball head coach on Wednesday morning.

Willis was a star basketball player at Porter’s Chapel Academy where she helped the Lady Eagles to a state championship appearance in her freshman season. Although she went through four knee surgeries in high school, Willis averaged 14 points per game as a freshman, 19.3 points per game as a sophomore, and 16 points per game as a senior where she was named as the Conference 7-A MVP.

Willis will replace Savannah Buck who resigned to become the head softball coach at ACCS.

“I am grateful to God for being named the new Lady Flashes Basketball Coach” Willis said. “I am so thankful to VCS Administration for trusting me with this position. I am extremely excited to have the privilege to work with many of these girls I have prayed over for years, and with meeting new ones that will be added to my prayer list.

I want to thank my family for their support and encouragement. To VCS Administration, students, fans, and St. Al Alumni, the girls and I will do our best not to let you down. Lady Flashes, I’m ready for you. Let’s do this!”
