STAFFORD —The College at Brockport women's basketball team in Brockport, New York announced this week the addition of Allison Spaschak to the coaching staff for the 2018-19 season.

Allison graduated from Southern Regional in 2014. "Southern Basketball taught me the importance of understanding the process. My sophomore year we were 6-20, and by senior year we were 22-5 because we really valued growth and the process," said Allison. "Coach Snyder taught me to hold myself and others to a high standard and the value a coach can have in terms of impacting their athletes future and overall lives."
