She joins head coach Zachary Williams (Cobleskill, NY) this coming year as the Gators will compete this fall as the newest member of the Empire 8 Conference.
A 2017 graduate of Siena College, she competed for the Saints in cross country and both indoor and outdoor track and field, earning MAAC All-Academic Honors for four straight years, while also serving as the head coach for all three sports during her time at Siena. Sericolo also excelled in the classroom and was tapped as the 2017 recipient as the Outstanding Academic Athlete Award, while also earning the Saints Cup Team Award for her contributions to the community with her community service and community outreach work.
Williams said of the selection, “As one of my former athletes, I have fortunately had to opportunity to work with Sydney for four years.” Williams added, “She has always impressed me with her maturity, and her eagerness to develop as an athlete. I know that she will now turn to coaching with that same eagerness. I think she will be a real asset to the teams, as she can act as a mentor to our student-athletes; she will be able to impart upon our student-athletes the knowledge, experiences, and skills that she garnered over the years as a successful Division student-athlete."
