From Press Releases
Director of Athletics Dick Hack has announced that Ann Denning has been named the new Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach at SUNY Maritime College. Denning joins the staff for the upcoming Spring 2012 season and will also serve as an assistant coach for the women’s volleyball team as well as the advisor for the school’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC.).
Denning comes to Maritime after spending the past three years on the staff of the Copiague H.S. varsity girl’s lacrosse program out in Suffolk County, Long Island. She began as an assistant coach for the Eagles during the 2009 season, quickly implementing a man-zone defense for the young program and working closely with the goaltenders, which was her primary position as a player. Denning took over as the head coach at Copiague in 2010. She has also served as the head coach of the Crossefire Girl’s Lacrosse Travel Team out of Smithtown, N.Y.
As a player, Denning was a two-sport athlete at C.W. Post, playing both lacrosse and field hockey. She was a part of the Pioneers’ 2007 D-II Women’s Lacrosse National Championship Team. Denning played two years for the Pioneers’ women’s lacrosse team, seeing action between the pipes in 10 games during the 2007 championship season and six more as a defender during the 2008 campaign, while being named to the All-Academic team both of those seasons. Denning graduated from C.W. Post in 2009 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science.
Also, the women’s lacrosse schedule for the upcoming 2012 season was released on Friday. The slate features 11 regular season games over March and April, including eight against Skyline Conference opponents. The Privateers will be home for five games and on the road for six. The season gets underway at Reinhart Field on Saturday, March 10, when Maritime plays host to non-conference opponent Hartwick at 4 p.m.
