Flint Monarchs to play first professional women’s basketball game in Flint

Posted: June 3, 2014 by Jared Field in Professional

History will be made Saturday afternoon (June 7) at Ballenger Fieldhouse (Mott CC) as the Flint Monarchs will play the first women’s professional basketball game ever in Flint, according to the team’s head coach, Bill Schnorenberg. The Monarchs had been a semi-professional team but made the jump to professional basketball during the offseason.

The game is at 4 p.m. versus Chicago.

“I just want everyone to give us a chance,” Schnorenberg said. “We have a a lot of local talent on the roster and girls who have played pro ball overseas. We’re going to take this slow, see what works and not try to get too big too fast. We need support of basketball fans here in Flint. We’re playing in the best gym in Mid Michigan at the Steve Schmidt Gymnasium. The tradition of Mott only adds to what we are trying to do with the Monarchs.”
