(Carlisle, Pa.) - Dickinson women's head basketball coach Dina Henry (Franklin & Marshall '94) recorded her 200th career win on Sunday afternoon. The Red Devils opened the season 3-0, capturing the 2012 Days Inn Tip-Off Tournament title over the weekend.


The Red Devils opened the season with a 64-52 win over Goucher College and advanced to the final of the Tip-Off Tournament with a 79-61 win over Shenandoah University. Dickinson turned in a solid team performance, putting five players in double-figures to defeat Lynchburg, 78-74, in overtime.


During the 2004-05 season, just one year after Henry's arrival, the Red Devils set school records for wins in a season, longest win streak (13) and most games played in a season. Those accomplishments resulted in their first-ever appearance in the NCAA Division III playoffs. They finished 24-4 overall and were the regular season champions in the CC with a 17-1 record.


Henry led the Red Devils to a 22-6 mark in 2006-07 and the program's second appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Henry has the most wins and the best winning percentage of any coach in Dickinson women's basketball history.


During her time at Fredonia, the team participated in the SUNY Athletic Conference tournament all four years, advancing to the semifinals twice. Previously she was head basketball coach at Christian Brothers University and an assistant at Gettysburg College.
