Bonetti Named Associate Coach

By Jenny Callison, posted Jan 13, 2014
AJ Bonetti has a new position within the volleyball program at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

In a news release, Amy Bambenek, UNCW’s head volleyball coach, announced that Bonetti has been promoted from assistant coach to associate head coach. As assistant coach with the Seahawks for the past five seasons, Bonetti has played a key role in the turnaround of the program, the release stated.

Bonetti, who came to Wilmington from Mechanicsburg, Pa. five years ago, has helped the Seahawks record double-digit victories in four of his five seasons in the Port City, the release stated. In its 2013 season, the squad posted a 20-10 overall record, reaching the 20-win milestone for just the eighth time in program history.

“One of the biggest impacts AJ has made is in recruiting. In a short amount of time, he has made a lot of club and high school connections and always has his ear to the ground to identify new talent. He is well known throughout the Wilmington community and represents the best of our program,” Bambenek said in the release.
