Patrick Hart Takes Over as Skidmore's Head Lacrosse Coach

“I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the Amherst College Athletic Department for the last three years,” said Hart. “I have taken so much from my experience working under John Thompson at an institution like Amherst. The past three years make me both confident and excited about the opportunity at Skidmore. The chance to become a head coach at another prestigious liberal arts institution is a dream come true. I will miss all of the student-athletes and members of the athletic department that I have been fortunate enough to forge strong relationships with, but I can't wait to become part of the Skidmore athletic family.”

Prior to his arrival at Amherst, Hart spent two seasons as an assistant at his alma mater, the College of the Holy Cross, and coordinated the team's defense and recruiting. In 2010, the defense recorded its second lowest goals-against average (9.7) since 1988, which also ranked 26th in the country among Division I institutions.

Hart graduated from Holy Cross in 2005 after scoring four goals with 12 assists in 43 career games as a midfielder. As a senior he received the program's John H. Price Award, which is given to a member of the team who best exemplifies the idea set forth by former captain John H. Price, as “a man for others”.
