CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte 49ers women's
basketball program is steeped in success and honors through the years, which
may make this year's group no different from any other. However, on the heels
of one of the most successful campaigns in school history, the senior class of
Amanda Dowe, Jai Forney and Jennifer Hailey have a chance to leave a mark like
no other in a long time.
They entered the 49ers program as freshmen the year after Charlotte last made a
trip to the NCAA Tournament, in 2009. While they have been a part of
three-straight teams to reach the WNIT, extending the school's postseason run
to 10-consecutive years, a sense of wanting to get back to the NCAAs for the
first time in their careers, and the third in the program's history, is on
The Niners enter the final week of the regular season with a 22-4 overall
record and 11-1 mark in the Atlantic 10, the final year competing in the
conference. Charlotte returns to Conference USA next season but first wants to

The voice of the Charlotte 49ers women's basketball program, Josh Feldman,
recently caught up with this year's senior class to reflect on their careers,
this year's success and plans for the future.
