College Sports Resume, New Head Basketball Coach Selected

Coach Nicholas Wade

After a year-long pause of the athletic program because of COVID-19, Lee College men’s basketball and women’s volleyball are back and ramping up for the start of two new, exhilarating seasons for 2021-2022. As the program resumes, Lee College is excited to announce it has selected Nicholas Wade as the new head coach for the men’s basketball team as well as the new athletic director for the College.

“Nick brings a wonderful dynamic to this role and a fresh, new perspective on the court,” said Dr. Lynda Villanueva, Lee College president. “We are extremely thrilled to resume the Lee College athletics program and welcome Coach Wade to our Lee College family. Go team!”

Originally from Baytown, Wade said he is eager to return to the city where he grew up and pour into the surrounding communities and the student athletes who call Lee College home.

“To be quite honest, this is one of the best jobs in the country in terms of resources and location, and the administration has been great. So, it’s a really, really exciting opportunity for me,” he said.

Wade comes to Lee College from Angelina College in Lufkin, Texas, where he was two-time Coach of the Year and led the men’s basketball team to the Region XIV conference championship in 2020 before COVID-19 ended their national tournament hopes. Angelina College cancelled the 2021 season because of the pandemic.

Wade describes his coaching style as tedious as he works meticulously with his teams to sharpen basic skills while forming good habits on and off the court.

“The number one thing I’m going to promote as the new athletic director is that we lift each other up and support each other. We’re there to take care of each other, and we’re only going to be as successful as the people next to us. And if you pour into them, you will rise as well,” said Wade. “If we do that, I think we will be in a really good place.”

Wade said he attended Lee College basketball camps in the summer as a kid growing up, so he hopes to resume athletic camps for kids in the near future as he begins his new role with the College.

The Lee College men’s basketball team and women’s volleyball team will resume their regular playing schedules this fall semester. For more information about the athletic program at Lee College, visit https://www.lee.edu/athletics/.
