Potera-Haskins Takes Charge of PBA Women's Basketball Team

WEST PALM BEACH – Palm Beach Atlantic University is proud to introduce Robin Potera-Haskins as the seventh head coach of the Sailfish women’s basketball team. Potera-Haskins comes to West Palm Beach from Louisiana College, a NCAA Division III institution in Pineville, Louisiana. Potera-Haskins began her duties at Palm Beach Atlantic on May 14th.

Potera-Haskins has an extensive coaching resume that includes stints at Austin College, Texas Wesleyan University, Montana State University and Winthrop University. In 17 seasons as a head coach, she has compiled a 317-162 record.

High points in Potera-Haskins’ career include leading Montana State to back-to-back Big Sky Conference regular season titles and an appearance in the WNIT in 2003. Throughout her coaching tenure, she has won eight conference championships, competed in four national tournaments, had back-to-back “Sweet 16” finishes and over 300 career victories. Last year while at Louisiana College, the Lady Wildcats improved to 8-16 from a 5-19 mark the year before under Potera-Haskins’ direction.

A Texas native, Potera-Haskins played basketball at Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri before starting her career as a graduate assistant coach at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.

“Robin’s record speaks for itself, but what it doesn’t tell you is that she is also a committed Christian who lives her faith out loud and uses basketball as a platform for sharing God’s love,” notes PBA Athletic Director Bob White. He continues, “We believe she has found a home where both she and our women’s basketball program will flourish.”

Potera-Haskins will take over for Brent Gibson, who resigned in April after his team posted a 4-24 record in 2006-07.
