Jill Kowalik Resigns as the Post U. Head Lacrosse Coach

WATERBURY, Conn. Jill Kowalik, the first women's lacrosse coach in Post University history, resigned her post on Monday afternoon announced Athletics Director Anthony Fallacaro. Kowalik accepted a position outside of college athletics as a state educator. A national search for her replacement will begin immediately.

"We are grateful for the hard work we've seen from coach Kowalik since she started the women's lacrosse program here at Post," Fallacaro said. "We understand Jill's desire to get back into teaching and wish her the best in all her future endeavors."

Last season, Kowalik mentored the program's first ECAC All-Star in Mallorie Michalak. She guided Michalak to be ranked sixth nationally in caused turnovers per game (2.2) and 11th in ground balls per game (3.53). Michalak was a Second Team All-Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) selection at the end of the 2011 season.

During her time in Waterbury, Kowalik helped the program to its first-ever win a 13-10 victory over Bridgeport on March 4, 2011.

The program will begin its fourth season of varsity competition in the spring of 2013 at the newly renovated LaMoy Field.
