Mari Warner

Mari Warner, a Saco native and Thornton Academy graduate, was an outstanding high school player. She was named to the very first All-State women’s team by the Bangor Daily News in 1977. After graduation, Mari attended the Univ. of Maine where she played four seasons for the Lady Black Bears.
She coached for 20 years at the University of Albany, overseeing the Great Danes’ rise from the Division III ranks to Division II and then Division I. Warner left Albany after the 2001-02 season with a career record of 289-203, three years after the Danes moved to Division I. She was inducted into the University of Albany Hall of Fame in 2010.
Shortly after leaving Albany, Mari became the head coach at Lansingburgh High in Troy, N.Y., taking over a program that was rebuilding and eventually leading it to the sectional finals. She moved back to Maine and coached at Falmouth High School from 2010 to 2016.
