Capital’s Dixie Jeffers continues to reach milestones in a remarkable Women’s Basketball career




Dixie Jeffers

COLUMBUS, Ohio – On Wednesday, January 10, 2018, Capital University head women’s basketball coach Dixie Jeffers became just the 16th NCAA women’s basketball coach and just the fifth at the Division III level to earn 700 career victories.

Capital, now 8-6 overall and 4-3 in Ohio Athletic Conference action, hit the road for a conference tilt against the Student Princes of Heidelberg University in Seiberling Gymnasium (Tiffin, Ohio) on Wednesday night. The Crusaders built two different double-digit leads over the course of the game, but shot out of a cannon offensively in the fourth quarter to fuel the team’s victory. With a 9-1 run to begin the frame plus a pair of exclamation points with buckets from Elli and Annika Wachtman, the Crusaders went on the cruise to a 69-53 victory.

Jeffers, a two-time national champion now in her 32nd year as the head coach of the women’s basketball team at Capital University, is currently ranked second among active Division III coaches in total victories and possesses the fifth-most overall victories among Division III coaches, all-time. With the Crusaders’ 57-53 win over Carnegie Mellon University (Pa.) on Nov. 27, 2017, Jeffers surpassed Rene Portland (Saint Joseph’s 1977-78, Colorado 1979-80, Penn St. 1981-2007) to become the 27th all-time winningest women’s basketball coach. She is now seven wins away from entering the top 25 in that category.

It has taken Jeffers just 943 games to hit 700 wins, making her the 14th-fastest to reach this milestone among women’s basketball coaches across all three divisions.

“I am so proud of my kids’ performance on the road tonight,” said an excited Coach Jeffers. “The milestone win is a privilege for me to have done it with this group of young people as well as my amazing staff!”

Jeffers began her collegiate head coaching career in 1983 at the University of Rio Grande (NAIA) where she accumulated a 52-21 overall record. She was hired to lead the Crusaders in 1986 and in her first season led Cap to a 21-5 overall record, an OAC regular season and tournament championship, and NCAA Tournament appearance. In her time she and her teams have won two national titles (1993-94, 1994-95), have one national runner-up finish (1992-93), one NCAA third-place finish (1996-97), 10 OAC regular season championships, and nine OAC tournament championships.

On Jan. 31, 2015, Coach Jeffers became the Ohio Athletic Conference’s all-time wins leader among all OAC coaches. She defeated the University of Mount Union, on the road, 79-69, to achieve career win number 654 that evening. – link to story
