Club Lacrosse at SUNY Canton
The 2009-2010 academic year marks the first full year of competition for the newly established Lacrosse Club.
The club program got off to good start with a short but productive spring season last year. A full fall schedule is planned, beginning in September and running through late October. The club will come back for the spring season upon returning from the holiday break.
SUNY Canton’s new lighted synthetic turf field is home to all club practices and home games. Fall 2009 brings the first home games for the club. The program will compete with an international schedule including games against US and Canadian programs.
All SUNY Canton students are welcome to participate. Those interested are encouraged to contact Coach Pat Harrington at email@example.com.

Coach Pat Harrington
Coach Pat Harrington is looking forward to his first full year as the Head Coach of the SUNY Canton Men’s Lacrosse Club. Coach Harrington played an instrumental role in getting the program off the ground.
Following his successful coaching stints at all three levels of NCAA lacrosse, Coach Harrington’s immediate goal will be to build a strong foundation on which to expand the SUNY Canton Men’s Lacrosse Club program. Coach Harrington has amassed an impressive level of coaching experience during his young career.
Acting as the head assistant coach during the 2006-2007 season at Division I College of Holy Cross, Harrington helped lead the Crusaders to the best season since 1988 with a record of 6-8 in his only year with the program. The six wins were the most for the Crusaders since 1998 and followed a 0-13 season the previous year.
At Division II Mars Hill College in North Carolina during the 2005-2006 year, the Lions finished the season with a 10-5 record which was the program’s best record ever and first winning season ever. As the offensive coordinator, Harrington developed one of the highest scoring offenses in the country as the team averaged 13.6 goals per game. The Lions won a share of the Deep South Conference’s regular season championship.
Harrington got his start in college coaching at Division III St. Lawrence University. During two seasons with the Saints, the program went a combined 20-9 and won the 2004 UCAA regular season championship. After the season, the St. Lawrence lacrosse staff was awarded the 2004 Coaching Staff of the Year by the UCAA.
As a 2002 graduate of Nazareth College in Rochester, NY, Harrington helped the Golden Flyers reach the NCAA Division III Final Four in both 2000 and 2001 as an attackman.
