AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – After seven seasons on the job, Stacie Cepin is stepping down as Austintown Fitch Girls Basketball Coach.
Cepin made the announcement now, in order to allow ample time to find a successor.
“Over the past seven years I have seen several girls go through this program and grow to be successful young women,” Cepin said. “I would like to thank all of those who have given me the opportunity to coach here at Austintown Fitch. The experience has left me with long-lasting memories in which I will always cherish,” she added.
Cepin posted an overall record of 94-60 at Fitch, including six straight winning seasons. She led the Falcons to an All-American Conference title in 2014, which was the program’s first conference championship in twenty years. That year, the Falcons amassed a record of 21-2, which amounted to the best winning percentage in school history.

Coach Stacie Cepin Letter to the Community
I have decided to pause and step away from coaching high school basketball. I feel that I have had a great experience coaching these young ladies at Austintown Fitch High School. Over the past seven years I have seen several girls go through this program and grow to be successful young women.
I have had great coaches by my side and at the middle school that have worked very hard to help this program jump on the pathways to success. I thank all of those coaches and also the people and parents who have contributed their time and efforts to the Austintown Fitch Girls Basketball Program.
I feel that this is the best time to step down to allow the school district ample time to find a successor. I am leaving a program that is in great shape and has a great deal of young talent.
I would like to thank all of those who have given me the opportunity to coach here at Austintown Fitch. The experience has left me with longlasting memories in which I will always cherish.
