Conor Leary Joins the Huntingdon Lacrosse Coaching Staff

Huntingdon College lacrosse head coach Andrew Carey announced today that Conor Leary will join his staff as an assistant coach for the 2013-14 season. Leary comes to Montgomery, AL following one season as a local development officer with the English Lacrosse Association in Manchester, England.

"I had the pleasure of coaching Conor at Greensboro College," Carey said. "He was an exceptional Division III defender, covering some of the best players in the country each and every week, and displaying an excellent defensive IQ. However, the qualities that make Conor great are his capabilities as a leader and communicator. His senior season, he was voted captain by his teammates, a role which provides many challenges. The Huntingdon lacrosse team will respond immediately to Conor's work ethic and character. He will be a tremendous influence on these young men going forward."

Leary's coaching career began as a local development officer with the English Lacrosse association.  Leary was given the task of growing the game in Manchester as well as playing for Timperley Lacrosse club in the NEMLA Prem. 1 league.

A 2012 graduate of Greensboro College, Leary holds a bachelor's degree in Accounting. The four-year letter winner and four-year starter on defense served as a captain his senior season.  Carey coached Leary his first two seasons at Greensboro (09, 10) which to date still mark as the second most wins in a two year span with 19.  Leary helped Greensboro Lacrosse continuously be a force in the D III Independent field and posting the second most wins in school history with 10 his freshman season.  Leary was a three time member of the USA South all-academic team while a student at Greensboro College.

Huntingdon is coming off their second season in school history and returns the core of a team that posted a 7-8 record.  Leary replaces Jordan Drumheller, who departs for D II Catawba College.
