Mattera begins her second season as the head coach of the Cornerstone women’s basketball program.  During her first season she helped lead the Golden Eagles to a 19-12 overall record while being ranked number seven in NAIA Division II in Defensive Rebounds per Game (30.226).  Prior to her debut as Cornerstone’s coach, Mattera had an eight-year career in professional basketball, including five years in the WNBA.

"First and foremost, Katie brings to Cornerstone a love for Jesus Christ and a passionate desire to mentor and develop young women as followers of Christ," said Dave Grube, Director of Athletics at Cornerstone. "Beyond that, her experiences at the highest levels of women's basketball will provide us with outstanding player recruitment, development and a blueprint for championship teams. I am confident that Katie will continue the winning tradition at Cornerstone University."

After graduating from Grand Rapids Baptist Academy (now Northpointe Christian High School), Katie Feenstra starred at Liberty University for four years - earning All-American honors and setting school records for blocks and field goal percentage. She led the Flames to the Sweet Sixteen of the 2005 NCAA Women's Basketball tournament before being selected in the first round of the the 2005 WNBA draft. She made the WNBA All-Rookie team and played with four WNBA teams including the Detroit Shock in 2007. Most recently, she completed her pro career in China.

"I have had the privilege of being a player under some of the best coaches in women's basketball during the past few years," said Mattera. "I am thrilled to bring my professional experience and knowledge to Cornerstone."

Mattera has four returning starters and five letter winners from last year’s Cornerstone team that finished 19-12 overall and 13-9 in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference.  Mattera welcomes one transfer and five new recruits to this year’s team.  .
"Cornerstone offers a fabulous opportunity for me with the incredible program that has been built by Coach Fles," added Mattera. "Best of all, it gives me the opportunity to both mentor and train young student-athletes. I am so excited to use the experiences that God has blessed me with in my career to benefit others.”

Feenstra married Todd Mattera on November 8, 2008.

Cornerstone is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and was recently honored as the NAIA's 2012 Champions of Character top institution. Champions of Character promotes Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Servant Leadership and Sportsmanship in athletics.
