Saxons Announce New Head Girls’ Basketball Coach
Jacqueline Storm has been named varsity head girls’ basketball coach at Schaumburg High School, replacing Curtis Goodwin at the helm of the Saxon basketball program, who has stepped down after three seasons.
Storm, who teaches English at Schaumburg High School, has served as the Saxons’ girls’ basketball junior varsity coach since July 2015, and was the girls’ basketball assistant varsity coach from 2014-2015. Prior to coming to Schaumburg High School, she was the girls’ basketball sophomore coach at Romeoville High School (Romeoville, Ill.) from 2013-2014, the girls’ basketball varsity head coach at Gordon Tech High School (Chicago) from 2012-2013, and the freshman girls’ basketball coach at Carl Sandburg High School (Orland Park, Ill.) from 2010-2011. Additionally, she has been the varsity girls’ head tennis coach at Schaumburg High School since 2015.
“We couldn’t be happier with the selection of Coach Storm to lead our girls’ basketball program,” said Schaumburg High School Principal Tim Little. “Jacqie’s student- centered and a quality person. She’s the kind of person you’d want working with not only your student-athletes on the court, but your students in the classroom as well.”
Storm attended the University of St. Francis (Joliet, Ill.) from 2006-2010 where she was a four-year varsity letter winner on the women’s basketball team. She was a three-year captain of the team and was named Chicago Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) Freshman of the Year. During her sophomore season, she reached the 1,000-point mark and scored a total of 1,834 points during her collegiate career. Storm was a two-year National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) All-American honorable mention and four-year CCAC First Team All-Conference player.
Storm earned her bachelor of arts degree in English from the University of St. Francis, as well as master of science degree in educational leadership. She holds an Illinois Type 09 initial teaching certificate in secondary English/language arts, a language arts endorsement, and an Illinois Type 75 certificate in educational leadership.
