Emborsky named Women’s Basketball Head Coach at D3 Keuka College

The Keuka College Department of Athletics has announced the hiring of Paige Emborsky as the new Head Women’s Basketball Coach for the Wolves.

Paige joins Keuka College following a year as a graduate assistant at Virginia Commonwealth University. There, she was part of a Rams’ coaching staff that guided the team to a record-tying 26 wins and a trip to the Women’s Basketball Invitational Tournament. There she graduated this May with a Master’s of Sport Leadership degree.

“I feel very fortunate to have been named the Head Women’s Basketball Coach at Keuka College,” said Emborsky. “With five years of collegiate basketball experience ranging from junior college to Division I, I am eager to bring my knowledge and recent experience to Keuka.”

Prior to her time at VCU, Paige Emborsky had a decorated playing career at various levels. Originally from Newfane, N.Y., and Newfane High School, she began her career at Niagara County Community College. There, she was a 1,000-point scorer for the Thunderwolves and was named a 2020 NJCAA All-American.

She then found her way down to Abilene, Texas, and Division I Abilene Christian University. She played two seasons for the Wildcats, averaging over a three-pointer made per game. She graduated in May 2022 Magna Cum Laude with a degree in communications.

Emborsky then moved back home and took advantage of the extra year of eligibility due to the pandemic. She enrolled in a Master’s program at Division II Daemen University in Buffalo and led the Wildcats to the East Coast Conference title. She was named First Team All-Conference and set the NCAA DII record for the highest three-point percentage in a season at 59.1%, going 65 of 110 from deep. She also excelled in the classroom, being named a College Sports Communicator Academic All-American.

“Keuka College has hired a phenomenal and dedicated coach in Paige,” said VCU Head Women’s Basketball Coach Beth O’Boyle. “She’s passionate about the game of basketball and will be an incredible role model for her student-athletes. She leads with integrity, energy and has an incredibly bright future in our coaching profession.”

Coach Emborsky has already begun looking ahead for the 2024-25 season. She has met with the current members of the team on campus and has been reaching out to recruits. It will all be in preparation for the 2024-25 season-opening game for the Wolves in November.
