The bond between two coaches who have spent most of their lives together is a special force. That bond is what brought Laura Scinto to Fairfield and is the reason why she will be entering her 10th season as a Stag and the 20th year working for Head Coach Joe Frager. As the Associate Head Coach, Scinto serves as the recruiting coordinator and organizes the planning of each Stags’ practice and game plans. Known as a great resource to break down field, Scinto also heads the team’s scouting reports and game plans for game day.
Scinto and Frager have spent 20 years on the same sidelines, going from the high school rankings at Seymour High School, to winning a Division II national title at Southern Connecticut State and finally here at Fairfield.
In 2007, Frager and Scinto coached the Owls to a National Title, which highlighted their fourth NCAA Tournament appearance.
At Seymour High School, the two led the Wildcats to back-to-back state titles which was part of a 52-game winning streak at that level.
Scinto got into the coaching ranks after a successful four-year playing career at Bryant, eclipsing 1,000 career points and leading Bulldogs to three NCAA Tournament appearances. Scinto graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration from Bryant and went on to earn A.S. and R.N. degrees from St. Vincent’s College of Nursing.
Scinto played her high school basketball at Shelton High School, where she scored 1,338 points, the second most in the Gaels’ history. As a player, she led the squad to the 1985 State Class LL and Housatonic League Championships. She became the most decorated Shelton athlete and the first to graduate with 12 varsity letters while playing basketball, soccer, and softball.
Scinto currently resides in Shelton, Conn.
