ina Krah graduated from Allentown Central
Catholic High School and played on the 1974
championship team. Her Division I women’s
basketball coaching career spans 20 years at
universities such as Michigan State, California,
California State Fullerton, and San Jose State.
She served as the director of women’s basketball
operations at Vanderbilt University and in 2001
went on to become an assistant director and then
an associate director for championships for the
National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
In January of 2010, she was named the director of
the Division I Women’s Basketball Championship.
In this new role, Krah is responsible for the
preliminary round and the Women’s Final Four
ticket program, team transportation, and the
NCAA Women’s Basketball Officiating Program.
“Women’s basketball has continued to grow over
the years at every level,” says Krah. “The level
of athletic talent, the quality of coaching and the
national exposure to our game has certainly improved
since 1972 when Immaculata started a three-year
run at national championships. The competitiveness
in recruiting and resources committed to women’s
basketball programs certainly has changed the level of
expectations for the sport. I believe the game is healthy
and I am certain it will continue to grow for the good.”
