Shannon Spataro enters her tenth year at the helm of the Menlo College Women's Basketball team in 2017-18. Recent seasons have been some of the most successful in program history as the Oaks won three consecutive Cal Pac tournament titles from 2012-14 and won four consecutive regular season titles from 2012-15. During that span Menlo amassed an 88-30 overall record and nearly perfect 40-2 mark in regular season conference play. In her seven plus years in the Cal Pac, the Oaks have never finished lower than second place in the Cal Pac standings.

Heading into the 2016-17 season, Spataro owns a 161-101 (.614) record in her nine years with the Oaks, including a spectacular 76-38 mark in conference play. Under her reign, Menlo reached the California Pacific Conference Tournament Championship Game five of seven seasons, winning three of the final four years in the conference. With Spataro in charge, Menlo has produced 28 All-Cal Pac honorees, 14 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes, three GSAC Scholar-Athletes, four Cal Pac Defenders of the Year, one Cliff Hamlow Champion of Character, one Newcomer of the Year, one Freshman of the Year, two Players of the Year and four NAIA All-Americans. The Oaks have been named an NAIA Scholar-Team three times during her tenure. Spataro was named the California Pacific Conference’s Coach of Character for the 2013-14 season.

A two-time All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference player at Pomona-Pitzer (1991-95), Spataro returned to the West Coast to be the second women's basketball head coach in Menlo College history.  Spataro has been a successful assistant the prep, AAU, and collegiate levels, having coach most recently at NCAA Division I Fordham University prior to taking over the reigns of the Oaks program.  She has also had stints at fellow NCAA Div. I schools Kansas, San Jose State, and Texas-Pan American, and NCAA Div. II Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL.
