St. Bernard High School in Playa del Rey announced two new leadership changes in the Viking athletic program, with the hiring of Michelle Greco as head girls basketball coach and Sean Fallowfield as head volleyball coach.
Greco is a former UCLA basketball standout who won a WNBA championship with the Seattle Storm. She was the 1998 Gatorade Circle of Champions State Player of the Year at Crescenta Valley High School.
“I’m so excited to join the Viking family. Being a Southern California native, I’ve heard so many wonderful things about St. Bernard’s and I am absolutely honored to be their next head coach of the girls basketball team,” Greco said. “It is my goal to not only continue the winning tradition but to build and expand on it. I can’t wait to get started and I am thrilled to lead the Lady Vikings.”
Greco has also played internationally in Italy, Greece, and Israel over the last 10 years. She has coached at the YMCA Boys and Girls Basketball Clinic, UCLA Summer Camp, Santa Monica Surf Girls Basketball Club Team, and founded her own girls basketball camp where she coached, directed, and fundraised for 10 consecutive years.
Greco has selected Alexis Moore, a former California State University-Northridge player, to be her lead assistant.
A Southern California native, Fallowfield was a standout player at San Clemente High School, where he reached the California Interscholastic Federation finals in his senior year. He was named most valuable player at Santa Barbara City College when the team won its only state title, and was named California’s Junior College Player of the Year.
Fallowfield later attended the University of California-Santa Barbara, where he earned All-American honors.
His coaching career includes two state titles as an assistant at Golden West Junior College. Most recently, Fallowfield has been an assistant at Marymount High School, winning CIF and state titles over the last two seasons.
“I am thankful for my past experience and mentors that have gotten me to this point and allowed me the opportunity to take and be ready for this position,” Fallowfield said of the St. Bernard coaching job. “I am excited about the opportunity to join the St. Bernard family. I look forward to coaching a team that will continue the Viking tradition of success.”
