Beginning her second season as an assistant coach at Saint Joseph's is Ali Whitney.
In her first season as an assistant, Whitney helped the Hawks capture their first ever regular-season Atlantic 10 title and advance to the title game of the A-10 Championship.
A familiar face to the Hawks' program, Whitney played a portion of the 2015 season with SJU before moving to a role as a student assistant. With the Hawks, she helped the team post a single-season record for wins (13) and claim the program's highest seed (third) in an Atlantic 10 Championship, while earning a degree in marketing this past May.
Prior to Saint Joseph's, Whitney played two seasons at South Carolina. During her tenure with the Gamecocks, she tallied a goal and three assists, while playing primarily on the defensive side of the ball.
A native of Downingtown, Pennsylvania, she led Dowingtown West to the 2009 Pennsylvania AAA State Championship and three Ches-Mont League titles. Named an All-Area First Team and All-Ches-Mont League First Team selection as a junior, Whitney also competed for the Penn Fusion `92 club team and led them to three USYS Region I Finals (2007, 2008, 2010).
