Remington Steele Named Limestone Women's Lacrosse Coach

from press release

GAFFNEY, S.C. — Limestone College and head women's lacrosse coach Scott Tucker have announced that Remington Steele has been named an assistant coach effective immediately.

A 2011 graduate of Limestone College, Steele returns to his alma mater and brings four years of collegiate playing experience along with two years of coaching at the high school level and six years at the youth lacrosse level.

"We are fortunate to add Coach Steele to our women's lacrosse staff for the 2013 season," said Tucker. "Being a Limestone alumnus, we know he has the winning drive and knowledge that will help continue our traditions here."

Most recently Steele served as the Director of Operations and Coach of Iron Horse Lacrosse in Texas. While there he was responsible for managing the day-to-day operations for numerous club programs from various levels and worked closely with all players of all positions. Administratively, he was responsible for creating team budgets, ordering equipment, arranging travel for coaches and making sure that all coaches were appropriately certified.

During that same time he served as the head coach of the Coppell High School girls varsity team and was the goalie coach for Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas. He helped lead Coppell, which plays at the highest level of high school lacrosse in Texas, to a No. 8 ranking by the end of the year and produced the No. 1 ranked offense. With Jesuit College, he worked closely with the goalkeepers for a team that was Texas State Tournament Runners-Up in 2010 and helped lead them to the No. 1 ranking in 2012.

Steele played three years for the Saints nationally ranked men's lacrosse program from 2009-11 after spending his freshman year at NCAA Division I Robert Morris in 2008. During his time with Limestone he saw action in 19 games in goal and was a member of three Conference Carolinas Championship teams and three straight teams that made NCAA Division II national semifinals appearances.

In addition to his collegiate playing career, Steele was also the starting goalie for the silver medal-winning U19 Canadian National Team in 2008 and was a two-time All-State selection for Hillcrest High School in Dallas, Texas.

"I am very excited to come back to Limestone and contribute to the Athletics Department that did so much for me," said Steele. "I'd like to thank Coach Tucker, Mike Cerino and Dr. Griffin for this tremendous opportunity."

Steele holds a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management and a minor in Coaching, both earned from Limestone in 2011.
