NCAA Div II Lacrosse: Colorado State Pueblo Women’s Lacrosse Names Monica Potter As First Head Coach; Inaugural Season Begins In 2014-15
Potter’s collegiate coaching career began at Lindenwood (Mo.) University, an associate member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in women’s lacrosse. During one season at Lindenwood, she directed Lindenwood to the Central Plains Division title, a national tournament berth and a number-23 ranking in the Women’s Division Intercollegiate Associates of U.S. Lacrosse. She also turned a program with a losing record into one that had an undefeated regular season. Additionally, Potter served as Lindenwood’s field hockey coach.
She then moved on to the head coaching position at Adrian College, an NCAA Division III institution in Adrian, Mich. She helped launch the program into existence, recruiting players from eight stats to fill the roster as, much like CSU-Pueblo, it awaited a newly constructed complex for its program.
From 2008-09, Potter coached at Fontbonne University, an NCAA Division III institution in St. Louis, Mo. In returning to her native St. Louis, she directed the Griffons for two seasons, coaching above .500 for both seasons. In addition to her duties as women’s lacrosse coach, she also directed Fontbonne’s field hockey program as well as served as Assistant Athletic Director, specializing in NCAA compliance.
At CSU-Pueblo, Potter will get the opportunity to be a full-time women’s lacrosse coach for the first time in her career, and similar to Adrian College, she will be able to build a program from the ground up and ready it to take the field in Spring 2015.
NCAA Div II Lacrosse: Notre Dame De Namur Head Coach Kevin Arabejo Hopes To Return Argonauts To Winning Ways Last Seen In 2005-07 Seasons
Because of the lean roster, being in shape will be a must if the Argos want to fulfill their goal of posting a winning record via their nine-game varsity schedule (NDNU also plays eight collegiate club teams). As such, the team spent the first month of fall ball working almost exclusively on conditioning, sometimes with no sticks or balls. In addition, Arabejo has instituted a cross-training program where players are proficient at more than one position.
While there are high hopes, in only one of the nine games on the schedule – a spring break game against start-up Lynn (Fla.) on March 5 – can NDNU be considered favorites. And the rivalry game with Domincan may not be pretty.
In a part of the country known for its iconic bridges, Kevin Arabejo is hoping to act as a metaphorical connector at Notre Dame de Namur.
A member of one of the last classes recruited to NDNU by Joe Romano, the architect of the Argos’ salad days in combination with then-athletic director Doug Locker, Arabejo knows just
how good the Belmont, Calif., program can be. Back in 2005, NDNU knocked off No. 9 Bryant, 13-10, and even two years later, the Argos were playing in one goal games with NYIT.
As a player from 2009-12, Arabejo played for three different coaches and watched the steady decline of the program. It started well enough, with all four of the Argos losses coming against teams in the Top 9 in the country in ’09. The team was also still good enough to thrash Bay Area rival Dominican, 16-3. The nadir came in his senior year when he captained a 1-12 squad whose only victory came in double overtime against Lindenwood – a program in its first varsity season – while NDNU was rocked twice by Penguins.
