Varsity Coach: Catherine Schafer


Coach Catherine Schafer most recently was assistant coach at SUNY Geneseo for two seasons.  Prior to that she coached one season at North Allegheny School District in Pittsburgh, PA.

A 2016 Nazareth graduate, Schafer was a standout forward for the Nazareth Golden Flyers. In only 2 seasons at Naz, she finished 3rd in career scoring in Nazareth field hockey history with 78 points as well as 3rd there with 35 goals. Recognized as a First Team member as well as a Second Team Empire 8 All-Star, she was named Empire 8 Player of the Week 4 times as well as Corvias ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference) Player of the Week during her time at Nazareth. 

Transferring to Nazareth after a season at Division II Mercyhurst with two goals and two assists in 14 games, Schafer started all 38 matches during her two seasons at Naz, including an 18-goal senior campaign that established her the all time single-season record for goals that still stands. 

Schafer also enjoyed a stellar high school career at nearby Pittsford Sutherland, leading the Knights to the Section V Class B Championship and the New York State Championship semifinals. As a senior, she led Section V with 24 goals and 10 assists to be named a First-Team All-State selection while also landing her second-consecutive D & C All-Greater Rochester and All County honors. She also was a member of the Western New York Empire State Games team. 

A Pittsford, N.Y. native, Schafer graduated from Nazareth with a BSN in nursing and now is an employee at URMC Urgent Care. She currently lives in Pittsford with her husband Patrick and son Jack.
