POULTNEY, Vt. – Green Mountain College Director of Athletics Kip Shipley announced Thursday that Kevin Zuchorski will commence his collegiate head coaching career as the Eagles' new men's lacrosse coach. Zuchorski takes over the helm of the GMC men's lacrosse team becoming the eighth head coach in program history. He will also take over as the department's director of facilities and intramurals.
"We are very excited to have Kevin join the Green Mountain College community as its new men's lacrosse coach and director of facilities and intramurals," said Shipley. "We are lucky to add an individual with his character and integrity who brings a unique passion and dedication for both of his roles."
Zuchorski arrives at Green Mountain after having spent the last three and a half years creating, coaching, staffing and organizing youth lacrosse programs in the Westchester County area in N.Y. Towards the end of that time he also served as a volunteer with the Siena College men's lacrosse team, an NCAA Division I program. Through those experiences, he is very well-versed in the lacrosse scene in New York, especially in the central and eastern parts of the state.
Zuchorski's initiation to lacrosse occurred while serving as the University of Delaware game day operations manager with the men's lacrosse program from 2011-2012 where he was integrated in the day-to-day operations of the program from practice scheduling to game day preparation.
Kevin has become a true student of the game of lacrosse and has a strong passion for the game. He comes to Green Mountain very highly recommended by many of his coaching peers.
He also brings an incredibly organized and detail-oriented approach to his role as the director of facilities and intramurals through his work at NCAA Division I institutions University of Delaware and Marshall University from 2009-2012.
At Delaware, Zuchorski helped to oversee the athletic operations of 21 Division I sports and 22,000 students with a multi-million dollar operating budget. Before Delaware, his time at Marshall included game day operations of six different sports and supervision of several other areas including ticketing, maintenance, facility rentals and organizing community events.
Zuchorski is familiar with the Division III philosophy after coaching baseball and having been a student-athlete at that level with SUNY Cobleskill. As a baseball player, he later went on to pitch for Division II College of Saint Rose.
Zuchorski anticipates hitting the ground running and is excited to begin.
"It is an honor to be the men's lacrosse coach at Green Mountain," said Zuchorski. "I am very excited to get started. Green Mountain is a special place and I am looking forward to building a strong program of which the school and community can be proud."
