Bo Scannapieco Lauded for Commitment to Students

Bo  Scannapieco was recognized for his 900 game victory on April 23, just before the Jersey Blues defeated Sussex County College, a game which marked 904 wins for Brookdale’s legendary coach. However, according to those attending the recognition observance, the wins are not what makes Scannapieco legendary. His coaching success is a result of his commitment to student athletes and to Brookdale.

“As remarkable an achievement as his 900 wins is, it is dwarfed by the thousands of young women and men Bo has influenced and helped to go on and do great things beyond athletics,” said Richard Pfeffer, dean of Enrollment Development and Student Affairs. “I have never met anyone who fosters student success more tirelessly and enthusiastically than Bo Scannapieco.”

Athletic Director Shawn Noel noted, “this is an unbelievable accomplishment not only for Bo personally, but for the women that have been a part of the Brookdale Softball family, the athletic department and the entire campus Brookdale community.”
