Dori Oldaker is one of the most decorated coaches in WPIAL girls basketball history, coaching Blackhawk and Mt. Lebanon to a combined five WPIAL and five PIAA titles.
This summer, Oldaker's success once again extended far beyond Western Pennsylvania.
Oldaker coached Team USA to the bronze medal at the FIBA U17 World Championships in Zaragoza, Spain. The event took place June 22-July 2 and featured some of the top young talent in the world. Team USA went 5-1 in the tournament, its only loss coming to Australia in the semifinals. They bounced back to defeat China in the third-place game.
It was yet another successful effort on the international level for Oldaker, whose work with USA Basketball goes back several years. She guided USA to a gold medal at the Youth Olympic Games 3x3 tournament in Nanjing, China in 2014. Last year, Oldaker helped lead USA to a bronze medal at the FIBA Americas U16 championships in Puebla, Mexico. She's also worked as a USA basketball court coach.
