College of St. Joseph Hires Lamiotte

Jonathan Lamiotte has joined CSJ as head coach for the Women’s Basketball program. Lamiotte, who is also an admissions counselor at CSJ, most recently served as head women’s basketball coach and assistant men’s soccer coach for nearby Green Mountain College.

Lamiotte takes over for former head coach Chris Wood, who helped lead the team to a near-perfect 31-1 overall record, culminating with the win of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship, the first for CSJ. The Lady Saints were also the National runners-up in 2015.

“College of St. Joseph’s women’s basketball program is coming off a magical season where they won the YSCC Championship and the USCAA National Championship. As a program, we have some tough shoes to fill,” he said. “But I believe that with hard work, dedication and a commitment to excellence, we will be very competitive.”

Lamiotte has already begun identifying areas that he intends to develop and strengthen.

“Offenses may have off-nights when it comes to shooting, but the defensive effort demonstrated should always be at a consistent level. The more that our team’s defense is consistent, the team will win more than it loses, even if we have only average offensive talent,” he said. “Defense and rebounding wins championships. Defense is one thing that can be constant each and every game.  No one will outwork us, as coaches and players, in the identification of us being a top-notch program.”
