Once a Tiger always a Tiger. This is certainly the case for newly-hired administrative assistant Regan Fedric.
Fedric joins the staff after a stellar four-year career with the Lady Tigers. She will be responsible for the day-to-day administrative duties of the Lady Tiger basketball team.
For the past two years, Fedric has worked at the Medical Center YMCA as the co-director of operations and the fitness director. She has been involved in management of the total operation, including marketing, payroll, fitness, rehabilitation and fiscal planning. Fedric also served as an aerobics instructor at the YMCA in downtown Memphis.
A member of coach Joye Lee-McNelis' first recruiting class, Fedric helped lead her squad to a four-year record of 81-38, three straight conference championships and three appearances in the post-season NCAA Tournament. Fedric finished her career on a high note, as she was a finalist for Conference USA's Sixth Player of the Year award following the 1996-97 season.
Fedric played an important role as a reserve center, posting a career-best performance during her junior season in the LSU Crawfish Classic, in which she was named to the all-tournament team after scoring 15 points and pulling down five rebounds in the victory over Alcorn State. She was well on her way of edging into the starting lineup that season when, just 11 games in to the year, she suffered a season-ending leg injury. She returned the following year to post her best season of her career, averaging 4.8 points and 4.7 rebounds a game as a senior.
The Clinton, Miss., native totaled 587 points, 397 rebounds and 75 assists during her career as a Lady Tiger. One of the hottest shooters in McNelis' first recruiting class, Fedric was a 53.7-percent shooter from the field and a 65.5-percent shooter from the charity stripe.
A 1993 graduate of Clinton High School, Fedric received her bachelor's degree in exercise physiology from The U of M in 1998.
