Stepp spoke of her passion for the game. “As a player, Betty played with an unbelievable amount of determination and grit. She was a true competitor and she absolutely hated to lose. The word that best describes her is “Winner”. As a point guard she was a true leader on the floor, and we felt she had the knowledge to one day be an excellent coach. When we discovered that she had a serious interest in returning to ALC, we felt that she would be an wonderful fit, and we are very happy to have her back on campus.“{nl}“It is an honor and a privilege to be the head woman’s coach at Alice Lloyd,” said Noble-Acevedo. “I felt like I had a chance to return home. It was a great opportunity that I couldn’t pass up.”  In discussing her squad Coach Noble-Acevedo stated, “They seem like a hardworking group and I know they have a great deal of potential. There are some very skilled players returning. Our goal is to take things to the next level and have a chance to compete at the top of our conference. When I played, I always advanced to the championship game, but unfortunately came up one game short of advancing to the nationals. With hard work and dedication, I hope to get over that hump and advance to that next level.”{nl}Noble-Acevedo is married to Luis Acevedo. They have two children, Antonio (13) and Angelina (3).
