Mike Scerbo Adds Bryana Borrelli to Lacrosse Coaching Staff
Aug. 30, 2012
Eighth year head coach Mike Scerbo announced today the addition of Bryana Borrelli to the Duquesne University women's lacrosse staff. She will serve as the Dukes' Defensive Coordinator during the 2012-13 season.
"We are thrilled to bring Bryana on staff to run our defense," Scerbo said. "She has an amazing ability to connect with the student-athletes and is a true teacher of the game."
Borrelli comes to Duquesne after a one-year stint at New Hampshire University. In her year with the Wildcats, the team saw five players receive America East Conference accolades, including a First Team All-Conference choice, a Second Team honoree and an All-Rookie Team selection. Two student-athletes from that team were also named to the All-Academic Team.
She began her coaching career when she was hired as an assistant coach at Iona College in August 2010. In her one season with the Gaels, the team established a program record for best start in MAAC history and advanced to the MAAC Championships for just the second time in program history en route to placing five student-athletes on the All-MAAC teams and six on the MAAC All-Academic Team.
Borrelli is a 2010 graduate of Hofstra University, where she earned a bachelor's degree in Physical Education during a standout four-year career with the Pride. She was a four-time Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Commissioner's Academic Award recipient and was named to the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll as a senior, when she ranked fourth on the team in both ground balls and caused turnovers. Borrelli, who played every game for the Pride each of her final three seasons, helped the team to double-digit victories three of the four years, two CAA title game appearances (one championship), an NCAA tournament appearance and a #15 national ranking in 2010.
