Frey Named New Coach at Ferrum

from press release

FERRUM, Va. - Director of Athletics Abe Naff has announced the promotion of Mark Frey to the position of Head Men's Lacrosse Coach. Frey brings with him 27 years of lacrosse experience as a player and coach. Frey begins officially on October 1st.

Frey came to Ferrum this summer from Loyola Marymount University, where he served the past four years as head men's lacrosse coach, which competes at the club level in the Men's Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA).

Frey arrived at Ferrum to take the position of Assistant Men's Lacrosse Coach under former Head Coach Nat St. Laurent, who recently announced his resignation in order to accept a position at Washington and Lee University.

Frey led Loyola Marymount to a 13-5 record, including a 3-2 mark in the Southwest Lacrosse Conference, earning SLC Coach of the Year honors. It was the most successful season in LMU program history, and included wins over MCLA National Tournament participants University of Colorado and Texas State University. The Lions also posted wins in 2010 over University of Texas and University of Arizona, both MCLA top-25 teams. Frey's team closed out the season with a #17 national ranking. Frey also led the Lions to their first-ever playoff win, an 11-5 victory over University of San Diego in the 2010 SLC Tournament.

Frey played collegiate lacrosse a year at Ohio State University before transferring to Western Maryland University (now McDaniel College), where he played three years for the #10-ranked Green Terror. Frey hails from McLean, Virginia, and prepped at McLean High School, where he was a two-time All-Northern Virginia player.

The men's lacrosse program will play its first-ever men's lacrosse game on Feb. 15, when it travels to Lexington, Virginia, to face Washington and Lee. The Panthers home-opener is set for Feb. 26 against Randolph College.
