Jamie Majerowicz begins her second season with the Bemidji State women's basketball program in 2017-18. She was hired to the staff in June 2016 following six years as a coach at the collegiate and high school levels and a playing career at Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference's Winona State University. The Chicago native most recently served as assistant coach with Loras College from 2014-16.
The Beavers totaled their most conference wins since the 2013-14 season during Majerowicz's first season. BSU shot over 40 percent from the field for the first time since the 2009-10 season and tallied the most assists since 2007-08. Majerowicz coached center Sydney Arrington to one NSIC Player of the Week honor. Center Sierra Senske became the 20th Beaver to score 1,000 career points and ranks 19th heading into her senior season. Seven student-athletes were selected to the 2016-17 Winter Academic All-NSIC Team.
Majerowicz helped Loras to two appearances in the Iowa Conference Tournament as well as one trip to the NCAA Tournament last season. With a focus on the frontcourt, Majerowicz coached the Duhawks’ forward Lori Obendorf to back-to-back Iowa Conference Defensive MVP honors. In her two seasons, five student-athletes received All-Iowa Conference selections along with two honorable mentions. The Duhawks improved from a 15-11 record in 2014-15 to 19-9 last season during Majerowicz’s time with the program.
Prior to her service with Loras, Majerowicz coached at both the high school and collegiate levels, including a two-year period at Winona State from 2012-14. Majerowicz worked with the forwards at WSU as a graduate assistant under Scott Ballard and coached Abby Busch to an All-NSIC Second Team honor. The Warriors finished her inaugural season with the program with a 21-11 record, including a push to the semifinal round of the NSIC/Sanford Health Tournament.
Majerowicz spent one year at Neuqua Valley High School in Naperville, Ill., and coached women’s basketball, volleyball and badminton. Each sport finished as conference champions during her time with the program. She then coached one season at Evanston Township High School and worked with On The Go Sports before advancing to Winona, Minn.
Majerowicz was a three-year starter at Winona State and finished as a three-time NSIC All-Academic selection and captained the Warriors to a program-best 24 wins during her senior season in 2008-09. She led the team to a NSIC Tournament Championship and helped the Warriors advance to the second round of the NCAA Division II Women’s Basketball Tournament.
As a prep athlete, Majerowicz played at Lane Tech High School where she earned all-conference, all-region and all-state honors, among others. She qualified for the 3-point contest and was an All-American Nominee.
