Siena And Ali Jaques Part Ways
The Siena Saints women's basketball team will have a new leader next season. The school has decided to not renew Ali Jaques after a nine-year run as the Siena women's head coach.
According to SienaSaints.com
Jaques amassed a 116-148 (.439) overall record including a 75-90 (.455) ledger in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference spanning nine seasons as the head coach of the Siena Women’s Basketball program (2012-21). The Saints advanced as far as the MAAC Semifinals on three occasions under Jaques (2013, 2015, 2018), and she developed three First Team All-MAAC selections, two MAAC Defensive Players of the Year, and one MAAC Rookie of the Year during her tenure.
Siena College Vice President and Director of Athletics John D’Argenio said:
“We are grateful for Ali’s service to Siena College and our women’s basketball program over the past nine years, The team had some good moments on the court – advancing to the WBI Finals in 2015 and the MAAC Semifinals on three occasions – as well as some strong performances in the classroom.”
Jaques and the Siena women were able to pull a first round win in this year's MAAC women's tournament in Atlantic City before falling to the top seed Marist Red Foxes. Ali Jaques was a friend of the show and always a great sport. So of course we here at 104.5 The Team wish her well and will be rooting for her wherever she ends up next.
