Lindsay Reese Named New Head Lacrosse Coach at Lycoming

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. Former Lycoming College assistant coach Lindsay Reese will return to the College as its seventh women's lacrosse head coach, Director of Athletics Mike Clark announced on Friday, Oct. 12. Reese has spent the past two years at Slippery Rock University as the program's top assistant coach.

"We are very excited that Lindsay is going to be our next head coach," Clark said. "She has been a winner everywhere she has been in the sport of lacrosse, from playing in two Final Fours at Lock Haven to helping Slippery Rock to a school-record number of wins in 2012. She has strong knowledge of the game, having played both offense and defense during her career. We feel she will be a tremendous ambassador for Lycoming College and will continue the progress of the program that was made under Coach Chrissy Trescavage."

Reese takes over the program from Trescavage, who left the position to become the head coach at Misericordia University.

"I am very excited about this opportunity," Reese said. "I would like to thank President [James] Douthat, Dr. [Sue] Gaylor [vice president for administration and planning] and Mike Clark for giving me the opportunity to lead the women's lacrosse program. I had an excellent experience as the assistant coach at Lycoming during the 2010 season and I look forward to leading such a great group of young women in the upcoming season."

Reese was involved in all aspects of the program at Slippery Rock, including budget management, the organization of fall tournaments, assisting with planning the spring break trip, recruiting, film breakdown and scouting.

During her time at The Rock, Reese helped the program tie the school record for most wins in a season in 2011 (11) before breaking the mark with a 12-5 season in 2012. She also helped coach two players (Amy Halls and Casey Quinn) to All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference and IWLCA All-Region honors.

Reese broke into coaching in 2010, serving as an assistant coach for Lycoming under Erica Brown, who is now the head coach at Tiffin University. Reese helped lead the Warriors to a 10-8 season while serving as the team's offensive coordinator. She also helped guide the team to the Middle Atlantic Conference semifinals and coached six all-conference players and two all-region selections.

Prior to making her collegiate coaching debut at Lycoming, Reese spent three years working as a graduate assistant for the Buccaneer Athletic Scholarship Association at East Tennessee State University. While at ETSU, Reese was involved in game management, community relations, promotions, special events and fundraising. She served as the president of the student-athlete support group "Buc Wild," which became the largest student organization on campus under her leadership. She also served as the director of the inaugural ETSU/Citizens Bank Soccer Tournament.

Reese, formerly Lindsay Rentel, played lacrosse at Lock Haven from 2004-07. The Eagles reached the conference semifinals in each of her four years with the program, advancing to the title game twice. The team also reached the NCAA national semifinals in 2005 and 2007.

Reese served as team captain twice in her career, having her most productive year in 2006. She was named to the IWLCA and WomensLacrosse.com Second Team All-America squads. She was also selected to the IWLCA All-Region First Team, accompanying her second team honor from 2005. Reese was named to the All-PSAC first team and also was recognized as a national player of the week by WomensLacrosse.com during the season.

She still ranks in the top 10 in career goals (143), assists (64) and points (207) at Lock Haven and was the fourth player in school history to reach 200 career points.

A native of Medford Lakes, N.J., Reese is married to her husband, Michael. She earned a Bachelor of Science in sports administration from Lock Haven in 2007 and a Master of Arts in sports management from East Tennessee State in May 2010.
