INDIANAPOLIS - Director of Athletics Steve Downing announced Tuesday that Lauren Kincaid has been selected as the new head coach of the Marian women's lacrosse team. Kincaid is the second head coach of the program and comes to the Knights from Hiram College.

Kincaid has a plethora of lacrosse experiences, having spent the last five years coaching at the high school and collegiate levels. Last season, Kincaid was the head assistant coach at NCAA Division III Hiram College. At Hiram, she worked closely with the head coach in recruiting and scheduling practices, as well as coaching the goalkeepers. As the Terriers coach, she also designed practice plans and drills as they related to their upcoming opponents. 

"I am very excited for this opportunity to coach here at Marian," said Kincaid. "I am looking forward to getting out and recruiting, as well as building on the strong foundation that was etched in stone last season."

Kincaid is no stranger to the collegiate game, as she was a four-year member of the Edinboro University Fighting Scots lacrosse team. She was a member of the inaugural lacrosse team at Edinboro, where she played her four years with former Marian head coach Lauren Davis. In her playing career, she started 63 out of 64 games, spending time at midfield and defense. For her career, she scored 29 goals and had four assists, completing her senior year as captain of the team.

"I am extremely happy to have Lauren on as our next head coach," said Director of Athletics Steve Downing. "She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience as a former player and coach, something that the players will respect and relate to. I look forward to watching Coach Kincaid build on the foundation Coach Lauren Davis built for Marian lacrosse."

Before returning to the collegiate ranks, Kincaid was the head varsity coach of Kent Roosevelt High School for the 2016 season, being promoted after spending 2015 as the school's junior varsity coach. While at Kent Roosevelt, she coached one all-district player and one district honorable mention. Prior to Kent Roosevelt, Kincaid got her coaching career started as a volunteer assistant for Stow Munroe Falls High School. 

This will be Kincaid's second stint with Marian University. She previously spent the summer of 2015 helping recruit the athletes that are currently on the roster. Last season the Knights finished with a record of 9-8 in their inaugural season.
