Pezanowski to lead Lyndon lacrosse program

LYNDON CENTER, Vt. – The Lyndon State College Department of Athletics has announced the hiring of Kevin Pezanowski to the position of Head Men's Lacrosse Coach and Intramural Director. Pezanowski will assume his new responsibilities the week of Aug. 11 through 15.

"The Athletic Department feels Kevin is the right person to carry on both the great intramural athletic tradition at Lyndon as well as build the men's lacrosse program and take it to the next level," said Lyndon Director of Athletics.

Over the past two decades, Pezanowski had been coaching men's lacrosse at the collegiate level with successful coaching stints at Franklin Pierce University, Curry College, MIT and the Ohio State University. In addition to his collegiate experience, Pezanowski has also coached at several prep schools throughout Massachusetts and New York.

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education from Springfield College and a Master of degree in Physical Education and Recreation from Ohio State. Prior to coming to Lyndon, he held the position of Physical Education Instructor at Mount Wachusetts Community College in Gardner, Mass.

"I am extremely excited to be the first full-time head lacrosse coach at Lyndon," said Pezanowski. "I am looking forward to bringing outstanding student-athletes to this school and building the lacrosse program into a success. My first order of business will be to get the incoming freshman and returning players together. It's important that we get on the same page and work toward a common goal."

Pezanowski holds state teaching certification in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and is a Nationally Certified Firefighter. In his spare time he enjoys Kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing and a variety of other outdoor activities.

"I'd like to thank Chris Ummer and the hiring committee for their confidence," said Pezanowski. "I plan to build on my past experiences. I've worked with, and played for, some great coaches and I am going to bring some of the things they did to make us successful to Lyndon."
