Jaime Terenzi is the second full-time volleyball coach in Shenandoah history after having taken over the program in the summer of 2010.
Terenzi, a native of Lincoln, R.I. and a 1998 Springfield (Mass.) College graduate, came to Shenandoah after three seasons as the Assistant Athletics Director and Head Men’s and Women’s Volleyball Coach at Newbury (Mass.) College.
She led the Nighthawks women’s program to a second place finish in her last season in the New England Collegiate Conference with the men winning the NECC title for the first time in school history.
The two teams were a combined 14-1 in NECC play.
Prior to her experience at Newbury, Terenzi was the co-head women’s volleyball coach at Wheaton (Mass.) College and the head volleyball coach at both La Salle (R.I.) Academy and Seekonk (Mass.) High School. At La Salle, Terenzi headed up both the boy’s and girl’s programs.
In 2007, her teams won boy’s and girl’s Rhode Island state championships, winning 80 of 81 matches, and Terenzi garnered a pair of Coach of the Year honors.
In her first season at the helm of the Hornets, Terenzi led SU to a modern-era record 18 wins and its first USA South Conference Tournament victory in seven seasons. In 2015, Terenzi's club matched that 18-win total while also winning a program-record seven ODAC matches.

|2011||18-17||9-9 USA S||6th||2-1|
Terenzi followed that up by leading her squad to an ODAC Tournament berths in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Her Hornets defeated 2012 ODAC Tournament finalist Lynchburg 3-1 in a regular season match.
Shenandoah won six conference matches in 2010, a total that bested the three previous years combined.
Terenzi and her husband, Paul, have three children: Ryenne, William and Nolan.
