Cait Wetmore joined the UNCG women’s basketball program as an assistant coach in July of 2014 and was named the women’s basketball recruiting coordinator prior to the start of the 2015-16 season.
During the 2015-16 season Wetmore worked primarily with the guards including Lucy Mason who was named SoCon Player of the Week three times, won back-to-back Player of the the Month awards and earned both Coaches and Media First Team All-Conference honors. While under the guidance of Wetmore, Mason became the program's all-time leading scorer with 1,907 career points and set the single-game scoring record with 42 points in a game. She maintained a top-10 ranking in the nation for points per game (22.2) during her final year with the Blue & Gold.
Wetmore also coordinated the team's offense that saw a jump in production from the season prior. The Spartans led the Southern Conference in scoring average (65.5 points per game) and offensive rebounds per game (15.5). UNCG shot an impressive 66.1 percent from the field (41-for-62) to set a single-game Division I era (Since 1991) record against North Carolina Central (12/31).
Wetmore oversaw the development of sophomore Keli Foster who went from averaging 7.1 minutes per game as a freshman to 16.5 as a sophomore while earning a starting roll in conference play.
In her first year as recruiting coordinator, Wetmore recruited and signed two McDonald's All-American nominees in Alexus Willey and Mangela Ngandjui.
In her first season with the Spartans, Wetmore worked primarily with the guards including junior Lucy Mason who was named Second Team All-Southern Conference. Wetmore also spent time coordinating the defense which helped UNCG to lead the SoCon in steals, mostly due to the stifiling press defense. The Spartans finished the season second in turnover margin in the league as well.
Wetmore, a 2010 Adelphi University graduate and four-year member of the women’s basketball team, joined UNCG after serving her alma mater as an assistant coach for two seasons.
During the 2013-14 campaign, Wetmore helped guide Adelphi to the Northeast-10 Conference championship game and a regional semifinal appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Panthers were 23-8 overall and earned a No. 1 seed in the league championship tournament.
In her first year on the sidelines, Wetmore helped the Panthers to a 15-win season; the most since the ‘06-’07 year which resulted in the program’s first NE-10 post season appearance and win since joining the conference in 2009. Her responsibilities include player development, strength and conditioning, scouting opponents, practice preparation, academic advising and recruiting.
Prior to joining the staff, she served a two-year stint as a graduate assistant coach for the Columbia University women’s basketball team, Wetmore earned her Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work in 2012. As a member of the Lions staff, Wetmore assisted in player development, practice and game strategies, scouting and film breakdown.
At Adelphi, Wetmore served as a two-year captain and earned the team’s Mary Ann Beaudry Memorial Award for her exemplary leadership in 2009. She played on a pair of WBCA Academic Top 25 squads and was twice selected to the East Coast Conference All-Academic team.
Wetmore is a member of the Women’s Coaches Academy, Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, Alliance of Women’s Coaches, and National Strength and Conditioning Association.
