Constantino guided Quincy University to a 15-14 record in 2011, which was the Hawks’ first winning record since 2007. In 2012, they finished 14-16 overall.
“I have the utmost respect for the GLIAC, especially since I’ve seen the two conferences compete against each other during the past two years at the Crossover Tournament,” Constantino said. “I love the coaches I’ve met, and am excited to compete against them every day and form friendships with them.”
Prior to a stint as an interim assistant coach at Division II Millersville University of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) in 2010, Constantino spent three seasons as head coach at Division III Albright College in Reading, Pa. She also has extensive camp and junior Olympic club coaching experience.
