Maria Kasza enters her first season as an assistant coach for the Michigan Tech women’s basketball team.
Kasza has spent the previous two seasons coaching high school girls basketball in Michigan. She spent the 2010-11 season as the varsity assistant coach at Kalkaska High School where she helped the Blazers to a 23-2 record. That season she also coached the seventh grade boy’s basketball team at Kalkaska Middle School. Last season she was the head coach of the freshman girls basketball team at Williamston High School.
Kasza was on the Tech squad for three years, competing only one season due to injury and transfer rules. She was an integral part in two of the team’s NCAA Div. II Elite Eight Appearances.
“I am so excited for the opportunity to be back with Michigan Tech basketball, and I can’t wait to get up to Houghton and start working with Kim and the Huskies,” said Kasza. “I believe in everything that this program is, and I’m thrilled to be a part of continuing Tech’s tradition.”
She received both her bachelors and masters degrees in business administration from Michigan Tech. Kasza was a member of the Dean’s List and Beta Gamma Sigma Honors Fraternity.
