Jenna Martino (St. Joseph’s University) has been hired as an assistant coach for the University of New Hampshire women’s lacrosse team by fourth-year UNH women’s lax head coach Sarah Albrecht.
“We are very excited to have Jenna on staff,” Albrecht said. “She brings a plethora of knowledge from both her playing days at St. Joseph’s and from her coaching days at FDU. With her experience, she will be able to hit the ground running and will add a lot to our program. I’m excited for Jenna to push the team with her knowledge and enthusiasm at this integral time in our program’s history.”
Martino was a three-year member of the women’s lacrosse coaching staff at Fairleigh Dickinson University-Florham. She began her collegiate coaching career in January 2013 as a graduate assistant coach and retained that position until being named an assistant coach in September 2014.
Martino helped guide FDU-Florham to a 17-4 overall record in 2015 that included a 6-0 mark in the Freedom Conference, a league tournament title and NCAA second round appearance. The Devils also won the Freedom Conference tourney and advanced to the ECAC Mid-Atlantic Region Tournament in her first year with the program.
Martino had a standout four-year career at St. Joseph’s. She established school records for both goals (57) and points (76) in a single season as a junior in 2009, when she became the first Regional All-America Team selection in program history. The 5-foot-4 attack also led the Hawks in both goals and points as a freshman and sophomore.
On SJU’s career leaderboard, Martino ranks second in goals (154) and points (192) as well as fourth in assists (38). Her other accolades included Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team and All-Conference First Team twice. Martino was also named to the 2009 A-10 All-Tournament Team after leading the Hawks to their first championship game appearance.
Martino earned a bachelor’s degree in Food Marketing from St. Joseph’s in 2010 and went on to attain a master’s degree in Corporate and Organizational Communications from FDU-Florham in 2015. Prior to her coaching stint at FDU-Florham, Martino was a volunteer coach at South Brunswick High School while serving as a district sales leader at Frito Lay.
