Indiana State women’s basketball coach Teri Moren announced the addition of Sara Riedeman to the Sycamores’ staff this week.
Riedeman joins ISU after serving as head coach at Roncalli High School in Indianapolis for the past four seasons.
Riedeman played three seasons (2002-05) at the University of Indianapolis during Moren’s tenure with the Greyhounds, setting a school record by knocking down 44.2 percent (149 for 337) of her 3-point shots in her career. Indianapolis posted three straight 20-win seasons from 2002-05, going 74-22 during her time as a student-athlete.
While at Roncalli from 2008 through 2012, Riedeman coached the Rebels to a 68-28 record, winning three straight sectional championships and one regional title (2010-11). Before taking the head job at Roncalli, Riedeman served as an assistant at Bishop Chatard High School from 2005-08, supporting the team to the Class 3A state championship game in 2008.
Riedeman has worked as head coach with three Indiana AAU programs since 2005, including Indiana’s Finest 14 and under (2005-2008), Indiana Legends 15 and under (2008-2010) and Indiana Elite 17 (2011-2012).

In her career, Evans has earned six All-American awards with four first-place efforts (2011 indoors and outdoors; 2012 indoors and outdoors) and two national runner-up performances (2010 indoors and outdoors). She also is a three-time Great Lakes Region Athlete of the Year and has been named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Field Athlete of the Year four times.
