Tallahassee Community College announced Thursday the hiring of Mercedes Corona as the new Head Women’s Basketball Coach. She is the seventh head coach in program history, including interim stints by Lamar Hamilton (2013) and Joe Cohen (2021-22). Cohen will remain on Corona’s staff as an assistant. Most recently, Corona served as Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Arkansas State University Mid-South. During her tenure, she turned a struggling program into one that was nationally ranked at the NJCAA Division II level. In her third season at ASU Mid-South, Corona led the Greyhounds to a 25-2 record and an NJCAA Region II Championship. Last season, they compiled a 17-10 record and were named Region II runners-up.

Hunched over, RaeVaughn Barnes grasps her basketball shorts, catching a breath. "It’s been eight years," Barnes gasps, thinking back to when, as a community college student struggling with academics and mental health, she walked out on her team midseason. Barnes later learned that several Division I schools were offering her a scholarship. She hasn’t played organized basketball since. "I think about how I walked out every day," said Barnes, who moved to Oakland in 2018. Those regrets brought her to Fremont High School in East Oakland on May 7, as one of 20 players trying out for the Women’s Premier Basketball Association, or WPBA. After full-court sprints and side-to-side shuffles, followed by one-on-one and three-on-three drills, Barnes is battling fatigue before a series of full-court, five-on-five scrimmages end the nearly five-hour camp.
