Worcester, MA - Holy Cross athletic director Richard M. Regan, Jr. announced today that Adam Pascal has accepted the position to become the head men's lacrosse coach at the College.
Pascal comes to Holy Cross after spending the last two seasons as an assistant lacrosse coach at Williams College. While at Williams, Pacal worked with the offense and goalies and assisted with all practice planning, game preparation and strength and conditioning.
Prior to his tenure at Williams, Pascal spent two seasons as an assistant lacrosse coach at Harvard University. He coordinated and supervised individual training sessions and monitored the strength and conditioning program. Pascal also spent one season at Nazareth College where he assisted the head coach with practice organization and game day preparation.
A two-time All-American while at Middlebury College, Pascal still holds three NCAA Division III tournament records, including most goals in a game (8), most goals in a tournament (19) and most points in a tournament (24). He was selected in the first round of the National Lacrosse League draft by the Buffalo Bandits in 1999. Pascal then spent one season with the Boston Cannons of the Major Lacrosse League in 2001.
"Adam is a young, energetic coach, who will re-energize our men's lacrosse program," said Holy Cross athletic director Richard M. Regan, Jr. "He has played and coached at institutions that place a high value on academics which is very important to us. Adam earned the reputation of having a great work ethic and we believe that he will do a tremendous job building our program."
"I am excited for the opportunity to bring some success and tradition to the lacrosse program here at Holy Cross," Pascal stated. "I am thankful for the opportunity to become a head coach. I will continue to work hard and do everything that I can to turn this program around. "
Holy Cross posted a record of 5-9, 0-6 in Patriot League play last season.
