Carmen Dolfo

WWU Head Coach Women's Basketball

This season marks Coach Dolfo’s 32nd season as head coach of the WWU Women’s Basketball team. Her longevity at her career isn’t even the most impressive part about her – let’s review where she stands: 

  • Winningest Active Coaches (All-Divisions): 29th (618-245/.716)
  • Winningest Active Coaches (Division II): 7th (by wins), 20th (by pct.)
  • Winningest All-Time Coaches (Division II): 16th (by wins), 29th (by pct.)
  • Most 20-Win Seasons (Division II): Tied for 6th (21)

If you’re lucky enough to play with Carmen, you may notice a hint of a Canadian accent. She grew up in Penticton, B.C., where she led Penticton High School to the provincial championship as a senior. Dolfo came to WWU in 1984 after spending two seasons competing at Biola University, and played two years of basketball for the Vikings, earning NAIA All-America honors as a senior, averaging 16.8 points a game on a team that reached the national quarterfinals. In her four years of basketball, Dolfo scored 1,757 points and grabbed 896 rebounds.
