Former Jeannette standout Ciara Gregory joins the coaching staff at Charlotte, where she set career marks for 3-pointers attempted and made.

Former Jeannette standout Ciara Gregory has a bond with the Charlotte women’s basketball program.

The former 49ers sharpshooter has lived in the Charlotte area since she graduated a couple of years ago, and she routinely keeps up with the team.

The 3-point record-holder will be around the program a lot more now. She is part of the team again.

Gregory is joining Cara Consuegra’s coaching staff as a graduate manager.

“I missed hoops,” said Gregory, who is the all-time leading scorer at Jeannette. “I really got the coaching itch. It’s a great opportunity to get my feet wet in this position and to test the waters.”

As part of the grad-assistant accord, Gregory will pursue a master’s degree at the university. She has been working for Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

Gregory’s duties as a team assistant will include video and scouting projects, helping with recruiting visits, handling the team’s social media accounts, assisting with team practices and coordinating community service work.

Charlotte 3-point records for makes (235) and attempts (695) belong to Gregory, who made six or more 3-pointers seven times. She had a 35-point game against Davidson, a home arena record.

She scored 1,031 career points for the 49ers.

Gregory graduated in 2017 with a major in psychology and a minor in American studies. Her master’s will be in arts and liberal studies with a focus on psychology.

She will help coach another former WPIAL standout, recent Franklin Regional grad Cali Konek, a freshman at Charlotte.

Mt. Aloysius: Senior setter Emma Pevarnik (Hempfield) posted her 1,000th career assist — the sixth player in program history to get that many — in a match against Washington & Jefferson. She crept closer to the milestone with a 28-assist effort against Ursinus.

Saint Vincent: Host SVC split a pair of matches in the season-opening Bearcat Challenge. The Bearcats blanked Pitt-Greensburg, 3-0, and lost to Allegheny, 3-1.
