CHARLOTTESVILLE – James Rogol has been named video coordinator and Hadley Zeavin administrative assistant with the Virginia women’s basketball program, head coach Joanne Boyle announced on Friday (June 24).
The duo joins assistant coaches Kim Hairston, Cory McNeill and Katie O’Connor and director of operations Sarah Holsinger in rounding out Boyle’s staff.
Rogol comes to Virginia after serving as the women’s basketball video coordinator at California since 2008. While on Boyle’s staff at Cal, Rogol created and produced video features and game stories for CalBears.com, SoBerkeley.com and the team’s YouTube channel. In addition, Rogol was responsible for all elements of film exchange and video analysis.
Prior to his time at Cal, Rogol worked in the video services department of his alma mater, UVa. As a producer/editor, Rogol coordinated production of live events and shot and edited packages for Cavalier Sports Weekly.
Rogol has experience as a freelance videographer for such networks as Fox, CBS College Sports and MASN. He is a 2006 graduate of Virginia and earned a bachelor of arts degree with distinction in Russian and European Studies.
“James is a tremendous asset to our program,” Boyle said. “He brings an element of knowledge and creativity that is the best I’ve seen in the business. After spending three seasons with James at Cal I am thrilled that he will be rejoining our staff at his alma mater.”
Zeavin (pronounced zee-vin) joins the UVa staff after most recently serving as the director of women’s basketball operations at George Washington from 2008-10. While at GW, Zeavin coordinated all aspects of team travel, budget and practice scheduling and supervised the team managers.
Prior to her stint at George Washington, Zeavin was the video coordinator for the WNBA’s Detroit Shock from 2006-08, including the franchise’s WNBA Championship season in 2006. Zeavin handled film exchange, assisted with scouting and performed operations duties such as travel and scheduling of road practices and shootarounds.
Zeavin earned her master of arts in sport and exercise management from Ohio State in 2008 and served as an intern and tutor with the Buckeyes’ Student-Athlete Support Services Office while working toward her degree.
Zeavin spent four seasons as an undergraduate team manager with Vanderbilt’s women’s basketball program from 2003-07, including serving as the team’s head manager during the 2006-07 season. The Commodores posted a 99-33 overall record and advanced to the NCAA Tournament in each of Zeavin’s four seasons, highlighted by back-to-back Sweet Sixteen appearances in 2004 and 2005.
Zeavin earned her bachelor of arts degree in sociology and women’s and gender studies from Vanderbilt in 2007.
“Hadley’s experience in administration at both the professional and college level will add a piece to our support staff that is top-notch,” Boyle said. “She is an extremely hard worker and will be an invaluable part of UVa basketball.”
