SUNY Cobleskill Introducing Women’s Lacrosse for Spring 2024 Season

Written By Editor on 8/10/22 | 8/10/22

COBLESKILL -- SUNY Cobleskill’s Women's Lacrosse team will take the field in Spring 2024 for the first time, representing the College’s nineteenth NCAA Division III team. The women will compete in the North Atlantic Conference (NAC), featuring eight other schools with established teams. SUNY Cobleskill will begin a national search for a head coach with plans to appoint an individual as soon as possible to begin player recruitment and preparations for the 2024 spring season.  

The Women’s Lacrosse team will utilize training and competition facilities on campus, shared by the Men’s Lacrosse team and the Men’s and Women’s Soccer teams.  

“The NAC is such a good home for us, and our teams have thrived in this conference since we joined. We’ve wanted to get involved in the NAC’s competitive Women’s Lacrosse, so we are beyond excited that this is now a reality,” said Athletics Director Marie Curran-Headley. “Everything is in place for this program to get off to a running start; it’s now just a matter of recruiting the right talent to ensure the short and long-term success of Women’s Lacrosse at SUNY Cobleskill. The consistent, campus-wide support for our athletics is a great sign that this team will be well-positioned to make a name for itself in Division III lacrosse.” 

“As a campus that takes great pride in our student-athletes and celebrates their pursuit of excellence in sport and scholarship, we eagerly await the upcoming season and our chance to rally around our Women’s Lacrosse team,” said SUNY Cobleskill President Marion Terenzio, Ph.D. “Across the board, our athletics programs enjoy our complete faith in representing this College, with confidence in their abilities and those of their teammates. As we welcome a new team and coaching staff, we welcome new standard-bears of a rich athletic tradition shared by all Fighting Tigers and their supporters.”  

SUNY Cobleskill entered the NCAA in 2008 and became a full NCAA Division III institution in 2012. The Fighting Tigers have earned over 20 conference championships in that time. The College currently supports 21 varsity teams, with 18 competing in the NCAA. The Men’s and Women’s Equestrian Hunt Seat compete as members of the Intercollegiate Horse Shows Association (IHSA). The College’s Esports team, which was introduced in the 2020-21 season, competes against other public institutions in the SUNY Esports League.
