About Our Coaches

Nicol Parcelluzzi

The 2016 season will mark the 11th for Nicol Parcelluzzi as head coach of the Montclair State women’s lacrosse program. And for the last decade, Parcelluzzi has guided the Red Hawks to a level of success MSU had envisioned when the sport was reinstated in the late 1990s.

In her first 10 years at the helm, Parcelluzzi, the all-time winningest coach in program history, has fashioned a record of 125-56, a .691 winning percentage that includes seven conference championships and all six of the program’s appearances in the NCAA Division III Women’s Lacrosse Championship.  Her teams have won 10 or more games eight times and have set the single-season mark for wins three times including the 2013 and 2014 seasons when Montclair posted a 30-7 mark with back-to-back 15 win campaigns.

Taking over the team in July 2005, all Parcelluzzi did was guide MSU to the finest season it has ever seen. During the 2006 campaign Montclair State compiled a 15-3 mark, setting the season record for victories. The Red Hawks won their final 12 games of the year - another record and their .833 winning percentage was one of the best in Division III. In addition, Montclair posted a perfect record during the regular season in the Skyline Conference and remained that way as it captured its first league title by outscoring its opponents, 40-11 in the Skyline Tournament.

The Red Hawks then put the exclamation point on its banner season by winning the ECAC Division III Upstate Championship in just its second postseason appearance. In addition to its team success, Montclair also had eight players named All-Conference and four chosen to the IWLCA Boardwalk All-Region Team. For her efforts, Parcelluzzi and her assistants were named the Skyline Conference’s Coaching Staff of the Year.

The 2006 season was just the start of a tremendous run for Montclair State which made more history the following year when it went 14-4, won its second straight Skyline Conference championship and most importantly earned its first bid to the NCAA Tournament where it defeated Eastern Connecticut in the first round 17-7. The campaign produced numerous individual honors for MSU including the first two All-Americans in program history as Brianna Gillin and Dina Morrone were named to the IWLCA Division III squad.

Over the next four years, Parcelluzzi’s Red Hawks continued their dominance of the Skyline Conference winning the league’s championship three times while making three more trips to the NCAA Tournament. From 2006 through 2013 before leaving to become a full-time member of the New Jersey Athletic Conference, Montclair posted a 55-3 mark in the regular season during its eight-year run in the Skyline and made the tournament title game every season.

It was that final Skyline Conference game in 2013 that produced one of Parcelluzzi’s milestone moments as she picked up her 100th career victory in MSU’s 15-13 win over Farmingdale State that send Montclair State to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth consecutive season. A year earlier, the Red Hawks reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament defeating nationally-ranked York College (PA) 14-13 in thrilling fashion in the first round.

Parcelluzzi has been named Coach of the Year seven times, including a sweep of the Skyline and NJAC honor in 2012 and 2013 and has coached nearly 90 All-Conference selections which includes 11 league Player of the Year accolades and five Rookie of the Year picks.  All four of Montclair State’s All-Americans have been coached by Parcelluzzi including Tierney Conlon, who earned her third honor in 2015 and became the first player to earn First-Team honors in 2015.

Parcelluzzi came to MSU from Mount St. Mary’s College in Emmitsburg, Maryland where she spent two seasons as an assistant coach at the Mount under head coach Courtney Martinez Connor. During her tenure, the Mountaineers won back-to-back Northeast Conference regular-season and tournament titles, and advanced to the first round of the NCAA Division I tournament.

Prior to her two seasons at the Mount, Parcelluzzi was an assistant coach for the women’s soccer and women’s lacrosse teams at Marist for two years. At Marist, Parcelluzzi helped the Red Foxes reach the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament each season, including the championship game in 2003.

A four-year letterwinner on the Rutgers women’s lacrosse team, she helped the Scarlet Knights to its first NCAA tournament appearance in her senior campaign. That year, Parcelluzzi was named to the Mid-Atlantic Regional first team All-America and Most Valuable Player and participated in the annual North/South game.
