Lynchburg Men's Lacrosse Hires Chris Perzinski as Full-Time Assistant
LYNCHBURG, VA – A former standout on the field and sideline will return to Lynchburg College as Chris Perzinski was announced as a full-time assistant men's lacrosse coach Monday. He is the first full-time assistant in program history.
Perzinski served as Gettysburg College's first assistant coach in 2013, helping the Bullets to a 9-7 record while competing against the top schedule in NCAA Division III. His roles included defensive coordinator, recruiting coordinator and strength and conditioning coordinator.
"This is a great moment for our program to have a full-time assistant," said head coach Steve Koudelka. "Chris is an excellent fit with his vast experience and knowledge of Lynchburg College."
Perzinski, a native of Freeland, MD, is no stranger to the Lynchburg College lacrosse team. He served as an assistant coach for the Hornets from 2010-12, as LC went 30-8 over that span. He upgraded the weight training regimen and helped turn the defense into one of the best in the nation, holding opponents to a goal-against average of 6.15 per game in 2012. Lynchburg also won the conference title in 2012 and earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament. He earned his Master's Degree in Educational Leadership at LC.
Perzinski attended Lynchburg College from 2005 to 2008 and graduated with a degree in business marketing. He was a two-time captain, and earned first-team all-conference and third team All-American honors. The defender was a Senior North-South Game participant.
In 2009, Perzinski coached Albemarle High School to the Northwest Region title, and in 2010 was named Assistant Coach of the Year by US Lacrosse.
Perzinski was selected to be a member and captain of the first Polish National Lacrosse team, which competed in the World Games in July of 2010.
