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 has been critical for the Minutewomen.

In her time with UMass, the Minutewomen defense has been ranked among the nation's best over the last three seasons highlighted by a No. 1 ranking for much of the 2015 spring. She tutored goalie Rachel Vallarelli who was picked as the 2015 Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Year following a stellar spring. Vallarelli finished the year as the No. 1 goalie in the nation for save percentage and ranked No. 2 in goals-against-average. Her 5.77 GAA was the 11th-best for a single-season in NCAA history.

Since the 2013 season, LoManto has helped UMass post three of its top five single-season performances for goals against average. In addition to the single-season record of 6.06 from 2015, UMass also gave up just 6.3 goals per game in 2014 and 8.1 goals per game in 2013.

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 a person as accomplished as Brianne on our staff," said head coach Angela McMahon. "The experience and leadership skills she brings to our program after winning three National Championships as a player is invaluable. Our defensive unit and our goalies have benefited greatly under her tutelage."
