Meet a Salem Coach: Emily Long-Basketball

“Emily is an integral part of this team this year as we strive to reach higher heights. With her previous DIII playing and coaching experience she has an intimate insight to what it means to be a student athlete on this level. And as a resident hall director she is readily accessible to our athletes and keeps me abreast of all the interesting things that Salem has in store for our students. This puzzle for success wouldn't be complete without her aboard!”
