NYACK, NY - Jane Dietrich has been named the new assistant women's lacrosse coach as announced today by Nyack Athletics beginning the fall 2014-15 academic year.
"Jane undoubtedly will elevate the entire program," stated head coach Anne Reis, who will be entering her third season with the Lady Warriors. "She has a great understanding for what it takes to become serious competitor as well as to build a successful team. Jane is a gifted communicator and continually sees a task and champions it."
Dietrich graduated from Gordon College with a BA in Visual Arts in May '14 and played Division III lacrosse at Gordon College, in the Commonwealth Coast Conference, for three seasons (2012, 2013, 2014). Her efforts on attack and in the midfield helped move Gordon to an appearance in the 2012 CCC title game. Dietrich has also received Academic All-Conference accolades for two years during her collegiate career.
Coach Reis adds, "Jane understands the vision of Nyack Lacrosse as her life has been shaped by the Lord through athletics. Our team has been waiting for an assistant coach who brings glory to God in their every action as well as someone who is a master of the game. Needless to say we have found her and I could not be more pleased!"
In addition to lacrosse, Dietrich was a member of the Gordon Women's soccer team for two seasons (2012, 2013). For one season (2011), she participated in the NAIA DI, Westmont College Track and Field team where she broke the standing school record in the 4x100.
When asked about entering this role Dietrich replied, "my past athletic career has well-equipped me for this position. I am excited to continue my athletic career in a new way. The team has tremendous potential and I am eager to join Nyack Lacrosse as I agree with the methods Coach Reis uses in building the program."
