Doug Sage Named University of Scranton Head Lacrosse Coach

Sage then took the same position at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J., also one of the top Division III programs in the country. With the help of Sage's guidance, the Ducks went 9-6 in 2010. He was in charge of game and practice planning, scouting reports and travel itineraries, as well on on-field duties that included coaching the offense, face-offs and man-up offense.

From Stevens, Sage returned to Gettysburg for the 2011 season and helped long-time head coach Hank Janczyk lead the Bullets to a 23-14 record over the past two years, including NCAA Tournament appearances both seasons. With Sage coaching the defense, Gettysburg knocked off Scranton in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in 2011, pulling away in the second half for an 8-3 win. The Bullets also won a first-round game in the tournament in 2012.

"The coaches and players at Scranton have built a strong foundation with great potential," Sage said, "and I believe that my experience along with my passion to coach college lacrosse will help to drive our program to the next level."

Prior to his second stint at Gettysburg, Sage was the athletics director at Immaculate Heart Academy in Washington Township, N.J. from 2002 to 2006. He served as the girls lacrosse coach there in 2003 and also coached the boys lacrosse team at nearby St. Joseph's Regional High School in Montvale, N.J. from 2003-2006.

Sage starred on the lacrosse field at Gettysburg College from 1995-1998, playing in the midfield and helping the Bullets reach the NCAA semifinals in both 1995 and 1997. He also played Centennial Conference championship teams in 1995 and 1998, and served as a team captain in 1998.

He graduated from Gettysburg with a bachelor's degree in environmental science in the spring of 1998. He is currently working toward a master's in business administration at Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J.

Prior to his college career, Sage was an all-state lacrosse player at Ridgewood High School in Ridgewood, N.J.

Sage is also coach, director and founder of Next Level Lacrosse and Gamerz Lacrosse located in Ridgewood, N.J.
