North High School is proud to announce the hiring of Coach Jeanine Duncan to lead our Ladies Basketball Program. Coach Duncan is an alumna of North who stood out for her defense and three-point shooting ability as a Husky. This ability earned her scholarships that brought her to Division I basketball program UC Irvine. Upon the conclusion of her college career, Coach Duncan was honored with an invitation to try out for the WNBA.
Coach Duncan has coached at North before, serving as the girl’s head coach from 2005-09. She was strongly recommended by her peers for her ability to communicate with and motivate young people and for the passion she displays for teaching and coaching. She has served our North students and athletes for nearly two decades in roles as teacher, coach and mentor and she will continue with these roles in our girls basketball program with the mission of teaching life-skills through the sport of basketball. We are very excited for Coach Duncan and for our school and welcome her to the head coaching ranks at JW North.
