ATC Holds Seventh Annual Titans Athletic Banquet

April 10, 2014- Albany, GA- Albany Technical College's Athletics Program will hold their annual Athletics Banquet for the Titans basketball players and cheerleaders from season 2013-2014 on Friday, April 11, 2014, at 6pm, in the Kirkland Conference Center on campus.

Several players on the men and women's teams for the Titans, as well as the Titans cheerleaders, will receive awards and be recognized for their achievements throughout the season.

Speaker for the evening event will be Coach Robert Skinner, Head Women's Basketball, Volleyball, and Softball Coach at Albany State University. In his 23rd season as head coach of the Albany State University Lady Rams, Robert Skinner has built one of the most successful college women's basketball teams in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) and the South Region

Known for his "tough love" standards, Skinner, who was named SIAC Coach of the Year in 1990, has guided the Lady Rams teams to SIAC championships and appearances in National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II playoffs throughout the years.

His 1995-1996 squad won the SIAC championship and made team and SIAC history by defeating Rollins College, 63-62, in the first round of the NCAA playoffs, but lost a heartbreaker to Delta State, 99-67 in the second round. Skinner's Lady Rams won the SIAC championship in 1998, and returned to the NCAA playoffs, only to lose to Florida Southern University in the first round. He has been making history ever since with his clever basketball coaching skills and prowess.

Skinner is a 1979 graduate of Murray State University in Murray, Ky. Prior to joining the Albany State University family in 1991, he was head coach at Paine College in Augusta, Ga., where he compiled a 160-125 record during 11 seasons at the helm of the Lady Lions program.
