Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg athletics and head men's lacrosse coach Steve Koudelka are thrilled to announce the promotion of Colin McGuire to the Hornets' full-time assistant men's lacrosse coach position.
McGuire enters his sixth year with the Lynchburg program in 2019-20 after serving as a graduate assistant a season ago and spending four years playing in the Hornets' midfield.
The Odenton, Md., native earned honorable mention All-America honors from the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association as a senior in 2018 along with All-South Region, All-State and All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference accolades.
He was a key part of the Hornet midfield as a freshman during Lynchburg's 2015 run to the NCAA Division III championship game.
McGuire was a USILA Scholar All-American in 2018 and represented Lynchburg in the Division III North-South All-Star Game. He ranks in the program's all-time top 10 for assists in a season (32 in 2018) and in a career (85).
McGuire graduated from Lynchburg in 2018 with degrees in business administration and sport management and is currently enrolled in the university's master's of business administration program.
He replaces another Lynchburg alumnus, Jon Lombardo, as the program's full-time assistant. Lombardo accepted the head boys' lacrosse and assistant athletic director position at St. Mary's Ryken High School in Leonardtown, Md., earlier this summer. Lombardo had been on Lynchburg's staff since 2012 and was promoted to full-time assistant in 2015.
