Howard Payne University will hold a reception for departing women’s basketball head coach Chris Kielsmeier (left) and assistant Lindy Hatfield from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the balcony of the Mabee Center. All members of the HPU faculty and staff, as well as the entire Brownwood community, are invited to attend. Kielsmeier is leaving Howard Payne after nine seasons, eight as head coach, to take over as head coach at Division II Wayne State College in Nebraska. Hatfield is leaving the coaching profession to pursue other career opportunities. The Lady Jackets captured the 2008 NCAA Division III women’s basketball national championship with a perfect 33-0 record.
