Danny Young-Uhrich heads into her 15th season at the head of the women’s basketball program in the 2017-18 season. 

Young-Uhrich has led the Eagles to an overall 198-173 record and is the winningest coach in Juniata women’s basketball history. Her dedication and commitment to the program earned her Landmark Conference Coach of the Year honors in 2011 and 2012. 

Her athletes have received honors from D3Hoop.scom, the ECAC, the Landmark Conference and Capital One.  The program has produced 14 LC Athlete of the Week honors, six Landmark Players of the Year, nine First Team All-Landmark honors and six Second Team All-Landmark awards in Young-Uhrich’s time at the helm. 

The Eagles won their first Landmark Conference Championship in 2011 and have been contenders for the title each season. Juniata finished the season with a 22-7 overall record, 12-2 in the conference. Their first conference title led them to the third NCAA appearance in program history. 

Juniata defeated Gallaudet University in the First Round of the tournament to advance to the Round of 32 and establish the program as a force in the conference. The following season, the Eagles received their first ever top-10 ranking by D3Hoops.com and USA Today/ESPN. Juniata returned to the NCAA tournament and moved to the Second Round before falling to York College.

Young-Uhrich has established a culture for her program that commands respect. The Eagles never back down from a challenge and push themselves to the fullest every day, on and off the court.

Before she made the program her own, Young-Uhrich was an assistant to Amy Buxhaum. During her two years as an assistant on the Juniata bench, the Eagles posted a 21-29 overall record, and captured one Commonwealth Conference play-off berth.

The former Juniata standout still holds many records for the Eagles. She ranks first in steals (299), second in blocked shots (124), third in assists (291), seventh in scoring (1,045) and ninth in rebounds (596).
