Jamie Gutowski

POSITION Graduate Assistant

Jamie Gutowski moves from the hardwood to the sidelines as the 2006-2007 season begins at Valparaiso University.  The former Crusader letterwinner serves as the team’s graduate assistant.

As a member of the Brown and Gold’s staff, Gutowski is responsible for film exchange, producing publications for coaches and alumni, and assisting the recruiting coordinator.

A four year letterwinner for Valpo from 2002-2006, Gutowski averaged 7.1 points per game for the Brown and Gold.  She helped lead Valpo to a pair of Mid-Continent Conference Tournament titles, and the first two NCAA Tournament berths in the program’s history.  In the 2004 Mid-Con quarterfinal, her game-winning basket with just 1.4 seconds remaining helped propel the Crusaders for the rest of the tournament.  She was named to the Mid-Con All-Tournament Team that season as well.  In addition, Gutowski was a three-time Academic All Mid-Con selection.

Gutowski ranks fourth all-time in Valpo basketball history with 151 three-pointers made.  Her .360 shooting percentage from outside the arc also ranks fourth all-time.

A 2006 graduate of Valparaiso with a bachelor’s degree in sports communications, Gutowski is currently working on her master’s degree in sports administration at the university.
