Sports

   New Tennessee Lady Vols head basketball coach Kellie Harper was in Chattanooga Friday night speaking at the Southern Adventist University to help raise money for the school.
    Harper, who played for the late Pat Summit who would have been 67 Friday says there’s not a day that goes by Pat’s name doesn’t come up.

“I think if you are in Knoxville or on campus you are going to see or hear or talk about Pat Summit it’s multiple times per day it really is and I’m actually ok with that you know I’m not trying to be her I’m not trying to live up to her I’m just trying to do her proud, so I think for me I can embrace that and be ok needing to continue that tradition and needing to talk about her she’s everywhere and she should be.”
