ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure University women's basketball head coach Jesse Fleming has announced the hiring of Maggie Serratelli to his staff as an assistant coach.
Serratelli comes to St. Bonaventure from Lehigh University where she had been on staff since 2013. At Lehigh, she helped the Mountain Hawks to three Patriot League Tournament appearances including the league semifinals in 2016 and the conference championship game in 2015.
After joining Lehigh as an academic intern in 2013, she was named Director of Basketball Operations and Assistant to the Recruiting Coordinator for the 2014-15 season. She was promoted to an assistant coach the following year and became the program's recruiting coordinator in 2016.
The 2014 graduate of Holy Family University also served as a summer camp counselor for the University of Maryland's women's basketball program for two summers and was selected to the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's "So You Want To Be a Coach" program in 2014. She earned her Masters in Educational Leadership from Lehigh in 2016.
"I think we are adding one of the top up-and-coming assistant coaches in the country in Maggie Serratelli," Fleming said. "Maggie has a tremendous drive and passion for the game. She's wanted to be a basketball coach from a young age. She will be an incredible asset to our staff and to the entire St. Bonaventure community. I hope everyone at Bonas will join us in welcoming Maggie to the Bonnies."
Serratelli was a four-year letterwinner and two-time captain of the Holy Family women's basketball team as an undergraduate, earning a degree in Sports Management/Marketing. The native of Bethlehem, Pa. averaged 8.4 points and 3.6 rebounds per game as a senior and helped guide the team to three NCAA Division II Tournament appearances including a Sweet 16 berth in 2012. She finished her career tied for 10th in program history for career three-pointers.
She replaces Jeff Clapacs who accepted a position on the men's basketball staff at Bethune-Cookman after spending last season at St. Bonaventure.
