Sarah Cartmill named Binghamton women's basketball assistant coach
VESTAL, N.Y. -- One of the most prolific players in Binghamton women's basketball history is returning to campus. Sarah Cartmill, a 2002 graduate who has been an assistant coach with St Bonaventure the past four years, has been hired for a similar position at Binghamton.
Cartmill arrives from Olean, N.Y., where she was part of a staff that guided the Bonnies to an 80-48 record as well as a pair of WNIT appearances. She was heavily involved with the recruiting process and worked specifically with the post players. This past season, Cartmill coached a pair of All-Atlantic 10 selections.
In the Binghamton record books, Cartmill ranks second all-time with 1,862 career points and third with 784 rebounds. During her four years at Binghamton, the squad went 94-22, captured a pair of ECAC Division II championships and advanced to the 1999 NCAA Division II Tournament. Cartmill capped her career by being named the 2002 America East Player of the Year in the Bearcats' first year at the NCAA Division I level.
"I am very excited that Sarah decided to come back to Binghamton," head coach Nicole Scholl said. "She was a fantastic player for our program and I feel very fortunate to have her back now as part of our coaching staff. Her time away and experience she has gained both as a professional player and assistant coach in the A-10 definitely made her the right fit for the position."
"Pride and enthusiasm are the two words that come to mind when I think about returning to my alma mater," Cartmill said. "Anytime that you get the opportunity to return to a community and 'family' that brought so much to your life, you should consider yourself lucky. I'm excited to have the chance to give back to a university and basketball program which brought me some of my most cherished memories and experiences."
Following graduation, Cartmill played two years professionally in Ireland and a year in Denmark. She coaches several girls' school age teams during that time. In 2005, Cartmill began her coaching career as a graduate assistant at Ithaca College.
NOTE: Scholl was an assistant coach with the Binghamton program Cartmill final three seasons.
