About Our Coaches

Jessica Scannapieco

Jessica Scannapieco has made a name for herself in the collegiate women's lacrosse world. She is a former Division III star student-athlete and current Head Coach at Johnson & Wales University.

Before taking the position at Johnson & Wales University, Scannapieco spent two seasons as the women's lacrosse head coach at Elms College. While there she had the most successful season in school history. Scannapieco took a team that had not won more than seven games in a season and produced a 13-3 record. The Blazers were on the doorstep of the NCAA Tournament as they advanced to their first NECC Championship game. Eight players were recognized with a spot on the All-NECC teams. Elms was just as successful in the classroom as 11 student-athletes were named to the NECC All-Academic team.

Prior to taking over the program at Elms, Scannapieco served as the tournament director for Aloha Tournaments and World Series of Youth Lacrosse. Scannapieco has also coached for the Ultimate Club Lacrosse, Lax Plus Lacrosse Club, Laxachusettes Lacrosse Club and Susquehannock High School teams.

Scannapieco was a two-sport athlete at Western New England University where she played lacrosse and field hockey. A three-year captain, she helped the Golden Bears to the 2015 Commonwealth Coast Conference Women's Lacrosse Championship and an appearance in the NCAA DIII National Championship second round.

During her career, Scannapieco set the NCAA Division III career draw controls record (573) and was the 2015 Draw Control Statistical Champion with 9.42 per game. Scannapieco amassed 204 goals with 80 assists and 83 caused turnovers in her four seasons with the Golden Bears.

A three-time, First-Team All-CCC selection, she was named WNEU Female Athlete of the Year in 2015. Scannapieco earned ECAC All-New England honors as well as All-Berkshire recognition from the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association
