Assistant coach Jessica Galatioto joins the Bethany field hockey coaching staff for her first season in 2015. She will serve as the head assistant under Kylie Hrehor.

Galatioto comes to Bethany after a very successful playing career at Castelton University. Over the span of her career, a three-year starter in goal for the Spartans, Galatioto started in all 59 games over the final three seasons, posting a record of 33-25 while helping Castleton to back-to-back North Atlantic Conference Championships in 2012-13 and 2013-14.

The 2013-14 season was statistically the best for Galatioto as she ranked third in the NAC in shutouts (5) while tallying a 2.35 goals against average. The numbers were even better against conference opponents, as she notched a record of 9-0, allowing just five goals while boasting a goals-against average of .58. She also led the NAC in save percentage against conference opponents, posting a gaudy mark of .919.

Also a solid performer in the classroom, Galatioto was named to the National Field Hockey Coaches’ Association National Academic Squad in all four of her seasons between 2011-2014. A recipient of Castleton’s Physical Education Department’s Presidential Scholarship, Galatioto graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical and Health Education.

A native of Queensbury, New York, Galatioto will be enrolled in Bethany’s Master of Teaching program.
