Letter From Head Coach Jim Crowley
On behalf of our entire program, I invite you to join the St. Bonaventure Women’s Basketball Backers. We have ambitious goals for our program but cannot reach these goals without your support.
The program has developed to the point where we believe we can compete for a postseason berth every year. We are very proud to have made three straight WNIT appearances, won 20+ games three years in a row, and to finish fourth in the Atlantic 10 Conference twice. Those accomplishments are a credit to the seniors who’ve graduated the past three years – Cara Gustafson, Amanda Johnson, Andrea Doneth, Ashley Edwards, Priscilla Edwards, Tiara Johnson, Dana Mitchell, Erica Schiefen and Kate Murray. Those players set a standard of excellence for all future Bonnies.
Of the court, we also have high standards. Five of the past six years, we ranked among the top 25 NCAA Division I women’s basketball teams in team Grade Point Average.
I am extremely proud of the young women on our team, and ask that you support us by joining the Women’s Basketball Backers. Thank you very much.
