For the first time in the school’s history, a woman will hold the graduate manager position for the Syracuse University Men’s Basketball Team. It’s a rarity in NCAA men’s basketball.
Katie Kolinski runs the clock on the sidelines as forward Tyler Lydon of the Syracuse Men’s Basketball team runs drills, practicing his shot.
“It’s pretty surreal, it’s literally like a dream come true,” Kolinski said.
Kolinski was already with the team for the past five years as an undergrad, including for two Final Four appearances. But being a graduate manager is a little different.
