Alicia Abbott hoped to get her first collegiate head coaching job soon. The opportunity that ended up arising was almost too good to be true.

Abbott, a New Lenox native and Lincoln-Way Central graduate, will get to be close to home as she takes the huge step in her career. She was named head coach at Loyola University on Aug. 5.

“It’s pretty neat,” Abbott said. “It’s definitely an experience I’ve been looking to have. It’s exciting that it happened at home.”
