Minutewomen face Wildcats in Los Angeles to begin 2013
Iona game moved to Noon; Sacred Heart to start at 3 PM
After a standout collegiate career at Northwestern where she helped the Wildcats win three NCAA National Championship titles, Brianne LoManto was named assistant coach at the University of Massachusetts in August 2012.
For LoManto, this marks her first job as an assistant coach and her experience in goal will be key as the Minutewomen graduated four-year starting goalie Katie Florence last spring. LoManto was a three-year starting goalie at Northwestern helping the Wildcats to three national titles (2009, 2011, 2012) during her time in Evanston. She was named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team in 2011 and 2012 and finished her career with 448 saves which is fourth all-time at Northwestern to go along with a 8.10 goals-against-average.
LoManto has also been active in lacrosse summer camps. This past summer, she served as the Goalie Camp Director for Amonte Sports Lacrosse Camps in both Chicago and Boston where she oversaw and managed all aspects of the program. The native of Miller Place, N.Y., has also worked for the Wildcat Elite Club Camp, the 91 Lacrosse Camp, Long Island Top Guns Camp and Amonte Sports Lacrosse Camps since 2009.
"I'm thrilled to have another Northwestern alum join our staff," said head coach Angela McMahon. "The experience and leadership skills Brianne brings to our staff after winning three National Championships will be invaluable. Our defensive unit will benefit greatly under her tutelage."
