Sonia Burke '01
Asst Women's Basketball Coach
Sonia Burke ’01 was a superstar on the basketball court during her time at Spring Hill College, and now she is taking her talents to the next level as the assistant women’s basketball coach at Fordham University, a fellow Jesuit institution in New York, NY.
While at Spring Hill College, Coach Burke led the Badgers to the Gulf Coast Conference championship and the NAIA tournament. After graduating with a degree in management, she continued to embrace the Jesuit tradition of magis, always seeking (and achieving!) a higher goal. She lead a record-setting, conference championship program at Manhattan College where she served in various roles for 13 seasons before she was offered the position at Fordham University. Fordham’s head coach Stephanie Gaitley spoke highly of Coach Burke, saying “She offers a great knowledge of the game and brings a wealth of experience. She is a kind and caring person who will be a great addition to the program and the Fordham community.”
Congratulations, Coach Burke!
