Sarah Lonzi Named Assistant Cross Country/Track Coach

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure University cross country/track head coach Bob MacFarlane has announced the addition of Sarah Lonzi to the Bonnies' staff as an assistant coach.

Lonzi formerly served as co-head coach of the cross country program at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. She also ran for the Panthers during her competitive college career.

A native of Bradford, Lonzi ran for MacFarlane in high school where she won four District 9 cross country titles as well as three track crowns in each the 3,200 and 1,600 meters before graduating in 2008.

Lonzi graduated from Pitt-Bradford with a bachelor's degree in Sports Medicine and also earned her Master of Science in Clinical Health and Physical Activity with a concentration in Exercise Physiology. Following her collegiate career, she moved to the head of the classroom where she became a visiting instructor of exercise science at UPB. She currently serves as an exercise physiologist at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville and also has recently worked as a cardiopulmonary technician at Olean General Hospital.

"We're very happy to welcome Coach Lonzi to our program as the first full-time assistant," MacFarlane said. "She brings quality and experience not only as a runner during her high school collegiate career, but also her degrees in exercise science. I know she will be a great role model for our student-athletes, both academically and athletically; showing them not only how to be successful student-athletes, but also successful people after graduation."

St. Bonaventure begins the 2018 cross country season by hosting the Little Three Championship Saturday, Sept. 1.
