DIRECTORS

Mike Grosodonia

Mike was named the head men's basketball coach at St. John Fisher in October 2017. During his first two seasons at the helm coach Grosodonia has coached the Cardinals to a 33 and 19 overall record. In 2019 this included a trip to the Empire 8 Conference finals.

 
Grosodonia transformed what had traditionally been a good program at Aquinas into a perennial powerhouse in a short period of time.  While patrolling the sidelines, Grosodonia won nearly 200 games (194-38) and boasted a career winning percentage of .836.  Under his guidance, Aquinas captured the 2016 New York State Public High School Athletic Association State title for the first time in team history.  During his tenure, Grosodonia won six Section V titles and made four trips to the State Final Four.  He was named the All-Greater Rochester Coach of the Year twice and would go on to be named the Class AA Coach of the Year as well.


During the 2016-17 season, Grosodonia helped lead the Cardinals to one of their best seasons in recent memory as the team went 23-6 and 15-1 in Empire 8 Conference play.  With Grosodonia on the bench, Fisher won its seventh Empire 8 title and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball Championship after ousting St. Lawrence in the opening round of play. 


Grosodonia earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education from the College at Brockport and would go to obtain a Master’s degree in Special Education from Roberts Wesleyan College.
