Cheri Harrer of Baldwin Wallace is the second winningest women's basketball coach in the history of the Ohio Athletic Conference.

Through 2015-16, she has had 24 consecutive winning seasons. The Yellow Jackets have won eight OAC regular season championships and six tournament titles while appearing in the NCAA Division III tournament 13 times.

Harrer took over the Baldwin Wallace program in 1990. Her first three teams finished 4-14, 7-11 and 9-9. Every B-W team since then has had a winning record.

Through the 2015-16 season, Harrer's teams have won 527 and lost 197 for a .728 winning percentage. In the OAC, only Capital's Dixie Jeffers has more victories.
“Our goals every year are to compete for the Ohio Athletic Conference title and a berth in the NCAA Division III National tournament,” Harrer has said.

More often than not her team has done that.
