Flying Queens Camp of Champions
Assistant CoachMelynn Hunt
A coach and administrator for 39 years, Coach Hunt is in her first season as Flying Queens assistant coach. She came to Wayland after serving as assistant athletic director for the Lubbock ISD for the past 12 years, in charge of budgeting, personnel and high school sports. A native of Hale Center and graduate of Texas Tech University where she played basketball from 1968-70 in just the program's second year of existence, Hunt began teaching in the Lubbock ISD before landing her first coaching job at Lubbock Cooper. She was hired as head girls basketball coach at Plainview High School in 1978, helping the Lady Bulldogs to the Class 5A state semifinals and a 30-3 record. She later coached at her alma mater, Hale Center High School, guiding the Owlettes to the Class 2A state finals twice in four years. Hunt then coached Jacksboro High School to the state tournament before going to Lubbock Monterey and Haskell prior to returning to Lubbock to take an athletic administrative position in 2001.
Of coaching with Alesha Robertson, Hunt said the two "mesh well. We're both very, very competitive. We share some things in common, and definitely one of those things is our competitive nature." Hunt is excited to be associated with such a legendary program as the Flying Queens. "To be able to be a part of something that has as much history and tradition, especially with the teams that were honored this summer in Knoxville, (Tenn., at the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame) is really a blessing for me."
Hunt and her husband, Darrell, who teaches and coaches in the small Central Texas community of Star where he helps care for his elderly parents, have two children. Doug is head girls basketball coach and girls athletic director in Whitewright while Kyle works for an oil company supply firm in Odessa. She has one granddaughter, 2-year-old Harper.
