Yale names Rotan assistant women's basketball coach

Here are some news and notes from Tuesday around the area:

The Yale women’s basketball team announced the hiring of Kelly Rotan as an assistant coach for the upcoming 2011-12 season.
After a successful playing career at Juniata College in Pennsylvania, Rotan spent the 2010-11 academic year working at Penn State as a marketing coordinator in the athletic department, where she helped organize events, promotions and fundraising efforts for the basketball teams and other Olympic sports.
Rotan joins a Bulldog staff that is coming off of its first-ever appearance in the Women’s National Invitational Tournament (WNIT). She will assist Coach Gobrecht and fellow assistant coaches Allison Guth and Jarietta Benton in the development of the Bulldogs’ post players, as well as all facets of game preparation.

The Southern Connecticut State women’s soccer team was selected eighth in the Northeast-10 Conference Coaches’ preseason poll. The Owls garnered 129 points after compiling an 8-6-3 overall record, and a 6-6-3 mark in the NE-10 last year.
The University of New Haven women’s team was picked to finish 10th in the poll.
Saint Rose was selected as the preseason favorite to win the league.
