Lady Bison Basketball Coaching Staff ~
Head Coach Joseph M. Castagnolo :
Coach Castagnolo is in his nineteenth year as head coach of the Lady Bison. Coach "C" is a graduate of Clearfield Area High School and Williamsport Area Community College (now Penn Tech) with an Associate Degree in Carpentry. In his first year as head coach, the Lady Bison captured the District IX Class AAAA title and earned a berth in the PIAA play-offs. He was also named Progressland Coach of the Year for
1999-2000,2003-2004,2009-2010 and 2011-2012. Joey and wife Laurie are proud parents of daughter Margo, a former Lady Bison player and now a sophomore at
Lock Haven University.
Varsity Assistant & JV Coach Ann Janocko :
Coach Janocko begins her 2nd season as Varsity Assistant and JV Coach, having
served the two previous years as Freshman Coach. Ann is a C.H.S. ('09) and Slippery
Rock grad and played Lady Bison Basketball here under Coach "C". She is also a
Learning Support teacher with the C.A.S.D. Her surname will of course be familiar to Bison partisans, Ann's dad Tim being C.H.S. Principal and longtime Head Football Coach..
Volunteer Assistant Emeritus Stanley Solarczyk :
The Lady Bison Basketball family was saddened in late October of 2017 by the
unexpected passing of "Coach Stan." A graduate of Lilly ( PA ) High School and Lock
Haven University and long-time Phys-Ed Instructor at West Branch High School, Stan
also served at W.B. as Head Lady Warriors Basketball Coach and as an assistant with the
Warrior boys team during his tenure. The Lady Bison were fortunate to have Stan at CHS
to share his vast experience over thirteen seasons as Volunteer Assistant with Lady Bison Basketball and he will be sorely missed.
