As Perkiomen School continues to strengthen our girls’ athletics program, Kerrie Kosakowski has been hired as the Head Coach of the girls’ basketball team for the 2021-2022 school year.
“I am filled with anticipation at the possibilities that lay before the girls’ basketball program at Perkiomen School,” says Kosakowski. “Perkiomen is an institution of rich tradition, history, and achievement. I firmly believe that together we will build something special.”
Kosakowski comes to Perkiomen School from Williams College, where she has been the Assistant Coach since September 2019. During Williams’ 2019-2020 season they advanced to the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) playoffs and received an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, but unfortunately, their Sweet Sixteen appearance was cut short due to COVID-19, but not before having one of the best post-seasons in program history, finishing 20-8.
Prior to Williams, Kosakowski was Assistant Coach at Widener University. In her three years at Widener, she coached three Rookies of the Year, players named to First and Second Team All-MAC (Middle Atlantic Conference), and one Division III Hoops.com All-Atlantic Region player.
With connections throughout the tri-state area, Kosakowski is adept in player development and recruitment, embodying a culture of growth and positive change.
“Recruiting is the key to any successful program,” says Kosakowski. “Recruitment of student-athletes with strong character and commitment is the foundation of building a winning culture. I am looking forward to the opportunity to build a program at Perkiomen. It’s a great place to start something special.”
Kosakowski was a four-year letter winner on the women’s basketball team at Ramapo College of New Jersey, serving as team captain during her junior and senior seasons. She finished her career with 468 points, 290 rebounds, 158 assists, 79 steals and seven blocks while making 102 appearances and 49 starts.
A native of Bayonne, New Jersey, Kosakowski earned a bachelor’s degree in social science-sociology with a concentration in public sociology from Ramapo in 2016. In addition to her coaching duties, she will also teach history.
“It’s bigger than basketball,” shares Kosakowski. “It is an opportunity to build relationships with these young women, play an important role in their lives, and watch them truly transform.”
