Academy of the Holy Names has decided to go in a new direction with its girls basketball program.

On Saturday, athletic director Kevin Vargas announced Melissa Ganther was replaced after three seasons to bring in Chris Severini, the school’s assistant athletic director and assistant varsity basketball coach the past three years.

“AHN wishes Melissa Ganther well, and thanks her for her time and efforts over the past three seasons,” Vargas said in a release.

Severini was also the junior varsity coach for two years

“Coach Severini possesses the intangibles and the vision to lead this basketball team, and I am confident that he is the best fit for the program both immediately and in the future. Needless to say, I look forward to working with him on the continued development of the Academy’s basketball program,” Vargas said.

The Jaguars went 15-11 under Ganther last season and were 47-25 overall in three seasons under her guidance.
