CROWN POINT | Coach Anne “Kvachkoff” Equihua will be inducted into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame April 27 for her outstanding performance as a Lady Bulldog during the 1980’s.

The first girl’s high school program to win back-to-back championships earned its respect during an unbelievable run in the mid-80's when the Lady Bulldogs and Coach Tom May made three consecutive state championship game appearances in 1983, 1984 and 1985.

A central player in that incredible run was Anne Kvachkoff, known to Crown Point fans back then as "Special K." Anne was awarded a basketball scholarship to Purdue University, where she graduated with an elementary teaching degree and all American status in basketball. In 1992-93, she held her first coaching position as girls JV coach at Crown Point while teaching elementary school in Highland.

Anne has taught for Crown Point Community School Corporation since 1997. Currently she teaches at Robert A. Taft Middle School. In 2011 she stepped back into the coaching waters as the new head girls’ basketball coach at Crown Point High School. Her basketball career has taken her full circle from player to teacher and coach at Crown Point.
