Nance was a key ingredient on three teams that won OAC Tournament titles and four squads that advanced to the Division III national tournament. She was a two-time first-team All-OAC player who earned WBCA-Kodak Division III All-American accolades as a senior.
Nance set a school single-season scoring record with 495 points and owns school marks for the most free throws attempted (179) and made (146). She owned an OAC record by making 10-of-10 foul shots in a game.
Nance is currently the head women’s basketball coach at NCAA Division II Mars Hill (N.C.) College.
