Wilmington College announced today that Domenic Marzano has been named head men’s lacrosse coach.

Marzano, 28, will be the first-ever lacrosse coach at Wilmington, which will begin its inaugural season in the spring of 2013.

“We are excited that Domenic has decided to join our athletics family,” said Terry Rupert, Wilmington College’s vice-president for athletics administration/director of athletics. “His energy and passion for the sport will be huge assets as he forms the foundation for our men’s lacrosse program.”

A graduate of Hilliard Davidson High School, Marzano was a four-year starter at Wheeling Jesuit University. He was an assistant coach at Hilliard Davidson High from 2008 to 2009 and has been head boy’s lacrosse coach at Hilliard Bradley High School since 2009. He has been an assistant coach for the Ohio Wesleyan University men’s team since 2011 and has been head coach for Titanium Lacrosse summer recruiting team since 2008.

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to come to Wilmington,” Marzano said. “Fundamentals will be a priority. Everybody will be coming from different sorts of programs, so we will be focused on establishing our own way of doing things, our own fundamentals. We will be starting a new tradition at Wilmington with those fundamentals. We want teams to say that we play tough and we play clean.”

The national search for a women’s coach continues. Wilmington’s lacrosse teams will play their home games at the 3,500-seat Williams Stadium.

Wilmington College is an NCAA Division III member of the Ohio Athletic Conference.
