CANTON – SUNY Canton Head Athletic Trainer Christine Scuderi has named Vanessa Virgilio as the Roos next Assistant Athletic Trainer.
“I am thrilled to have Vanessa join our Athletic Training staff here at SUNY Canton,” Scuderi said. “I believe Vanessa’s previous experiences will help her fit in well with our staff and greatly benefit the Roos student-athletes.”
Virgilio joins the Roos following graduating from Alfred University with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Athletic Training in 2019. Virgilio most recently served as the Head Athletic Trainer for SUNY Potsdam’s summer basketball camp in July where she provided first aid and evaluated injuries.

She also spent three summers as a member of the medical staff at camps at St. Lawrence University from 2017 to 2019.
