To say that Jenepher Banker has left her mark on the Penn State Behrend women's basketball program is a great understatement.  Banker took a mediocre program and, within four years, it achieved national recognition. 

Banker is the all-time leader in women's basketball coaching victories with 67.  Her teams hold women's basketball records for the most wins in a season (23), fewest losses (4) and best winning percentage in a season (85%).

In 1991-92, her team captured the school's first-ever ECAC Championship.  In that same year, her team garnered the College's first-ever national ranking for any sport.  Also, they earned recognition for having the fifth-best team defense in the country, limiting opponents to only 51.8 PPG.  In the 1992-93 season, Banker again guided the team into the postseason with an 18-7 mark, which is the third best record in Penn State Behrend women's basketball history.  In the 1993-94 season, the team was selected for the NCAA tournament, under the leadership of six seniors that Banker recruited.  That team, coached by Roz Fornari, won 21 games.

The Penn State Behrend women's basketball program will always feel the positive affects of Jenepher Banker.  Banker, a three-time academic All-American, always stressed academics and athletics, and this emphasis consistently produce team grade-point averages above the 3.0 mark.  She earned her master's in physical education in 1985 and is currently an assistant professor of physical education at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York.
