During their Tuesday meeting, Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet recognized a local women’s basketball team for receiving a national championship title earlier this year.

Franqua Bedell also known as “Coach Q” is the head coach for the Tallahassee Community College’s Women’s Basketball team.

“It’s a pleasure to be in front of you today and to honor these young ladies,” he said, at the time. “I was just the person guiding them. They’re the ones who was the motor and the engine to this championship because they bought it, they believed, and they trusted the process and that’s one thing we talk about every day…and to be a champion, much is given and much is required. You have to trust the process.”

TCC’s Eagles Women basketball team received the national championship title in March in the Junior college division. The last time any TCC team won a national title was 1994.
