Happy Retirement Coach Williams!
Between 200 and 300 well wishers attended the Retirement Open House for Coach Ann Williams on Sunday at Legacy Hall on the campus of Minnesota State Community and Technical College in Fergus Falls.  Nearly fifty former players were among those in attendance.
 
Former players Janelle Bright, a member of Ann's first team in 1977, and Jessica Draper, who played for Ann on the 2001 NJCAA Division III National Championship basketball team, along with fellow faculty members Jean McKenzie and Dick Portmann shared stories and memories.  Fellow coach Dave Retzlaff wrapped up the program with some poignant heartfelt words as he welcomed Ann to retirement, thanking her for following the instruction in Matthew 5:16 to "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."
 
Coach Williams thanked everyone for their attendance and shared a poem she had written years ago about one of her teams as a way of saying good-bye to her former players. 
 
Williams coached basketball for 34 years, compiling a record of 524-283, volleyball for 30 years, compiling a record of 523-431, and spent ten years coaching softball.  She was MCAC Basketball Coach of the Year in 1989, 2000 and 2001, Region XIII Coach of the Year in 2001, and National Tournament Coach of the Year in 2001.  She was presented a plaque commemorating her achievement of 500 career wins at the Final Four in St. Louis, Missouri in April 2009.  Ann is a graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, and received her Master's degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.  Ann was a biology instructor at M State.
