The Lady Cardinals is home to an incredibly storied and tradition-rich history. In addition to boasting a National Championships in 2005 and 31 Summer League tournament championships, the Lady Cardinals have help shaped the game of basketball by helping their coach Keith Coleman invent the WAVA System, Number and Color game control system and an Individual player training system.
The Lady Cardinal' success extends well beyond the competitive venues, the players annually ranking among the nation's leaders in student-athlete and a 100% graduation success rate. Many lady cardinals received awards from their schools from MVP to most improved player.
The first time the nickname "Lady Cardinals" was used for a summer girls basketball program, as far as can be determined, was the September 12, 2003, in a flyer sent out to local Texas high schools recruiting girls to come and play.
The Cardinal is to be the official mascot of the Lady Cardinals basketball program. This was decided by the founder Keith Coleman in memory of his late mother, because it was her favorite bird. Also, it is the state bird for the state of Virginia where coach Coleman grew up.
In October of 2003 six members of the Lady Cardinal participated in pickup game on a Sunday at Kingwood college, in Kingwood, Texas. With there being no official uniforms at that time, the players wore white t-shirts with a number written on them with a marker. The colors of red and white were the official colors in 2003. The colors of black and blue were added in 2010.
