Assistant Coach

Experience:
Fourth Season


Sean Bradke enters his fourth as an assistant softball coach with Siena softball in 2015. He primarily works with Siena's outfielders.

Siena Softball has achieved unprecedented success during Bradke's first three years with the program. The Saints have won 70 games - the program's most over any three-year span - and captured a share of the squad's first MAAC Regular Season Championship in 2013.

Last season, Bradke helped guide the Saints to program records of 29 wins and 13 MAAC victories. Siena's 29-26 overall record marked the program's first winning season since 1988 and the Saints captured just their second-ever MAAC Tournament victory.

Bradke previously served as the head coach of Niskayuna's modified baseball team. Under his guidance, the team set a school record with 104 stolen bases, and had a cumulative on-base percentage of .485. Niskayuna's outfielders did not record a single error all season long, and tallied five assists as well.

Bradke also previously served as the Saints' diving coach and helped guide that program to its fourth and fifth consecutive winning seasons during his final two years.

A native of nearby Latham, Bradke spent five seasons as the head diving coach and swimming and diving recruiting coordinator at SUNY-Potsdam. Hired as the youngest NCAA coach ever at age 19, Bradke led Potsdam to the #1 National seed by the time he was 21.

In 2010, Bradke led Potsdam to a National Championship in one-meter diving and third place finish in three-meter diving at the Division III level. Under Bradke's tutelage, he mentored 2009 NCAA Diver of the Year Nathan LaRowe, while also producing four NCAA All-Americans and three All-American Honorable mentions.
