GENESEO — Alyssa Polosky has been named the new head coach for the women’s basketball team by SUNY Geneseo Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation Mike Mooney.
Polosky played on the team for two years before joining the coaching staff and, in 2011, Polosky led the Lady Knights to their first SUNYAC Championship in 15 years. She was also named a SUNYAC first team all-star, All-East Coast Athletic Conference (ECAC) Second Team and Honorable Mention All-America.
In the past seven seasons, as an assistant coach, Polosky has seen the women’s basketball team produce six 20-win seasons, including a record setting 2016-2017 season of 28-2, two SUNYAC Championships, and four NCAA Tournament appearances, two of which saw the team make the “Sweet 16.”
“I would like to thank [Vice President of Student and Campus Life] Dr. Robert Bonfiglio, Mike Mooney and the entire search committee for putting their faith in me to become the next Geneseo women’s basketball coach,” said Polosky. “Having been a part of this program as both a player and an assistant coach, I fully understand the rich history of the program and will continue to instill the values that make Geneseo special.”
In addition to coaching at SUNY Geneseo, Polosky has also worked as a reading specialist at Avon Central School and coached Avon Middle School’s modified volleyball and softball teams.
