About Our Coaches

Peter Toner

Toner returns to the Gettysburg sidelines for his second season as head men's lacrosse coach in 2023.

In his debut campaign on the sidelines, Toner guided the Bullets to a 14-8 overall record and 6-2 mark in conference play, advancing to the Centennial Conference (CC) championship game before falling to Dickinson 10-9 in overtime. Gettysburg, however, would exact revenge on the Red Devils two weeks later and win a NCAA Division III third-round game in Carlisle 17-7 and advance to the national quaterfinals.

Just the fourth head coach of Gettysburg since 1969, the Springfield College graduate and former head coach at Wheaton College returned to his Division III roots after spending the previous 11 years at Penn State, including the final eight as associate head coach. Toner served as the recruiting coordinator and guided the team’s defensive effort, both of which contributed to unprecedented success for the Nittany Lions. In 2019, Penn State set a school record for wins (16), captured the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles for the first time, posted its first-ever victory over the University of Maryland, and advanced to the NCAA semifinals. For his efforts, Toner was named Assistant Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Men’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IMLCA).

Toner arrived at Penn State alongside head coach Jeff Tambroni in 2011 and the duo quickly established the Nittany Lions as a major player in Division I lacrosse. Penn State won at least a dozen games three times and finished either first or second in the conference standings on four occasions. Toner helped Penn State reach the NCAA playoffs in 2013, 2017, and 2019. In his 11 years in Happy Valley, the Nittany Lions posted a record of 93-61.

Prior to Penn State, Toner spent three seasons as the associate head coach at Bryant University, where he served as the team’s defensive coach and recruiting coordinator. Bryant reached the NCAA Division II Tournament in 2008 and Toner helped guide the Bulldogs through their transition to Division I competition. Bryant compiled a 22-10 record in its first two years competing at the nation’s top division.

Toner’s selection as Gettysburg’s head coach marked his return to the Division III ranks after 14 years. His last Division III coaching job came as the head coach at Wheaton College for the 2006 and 2007 seasons. In his first year he led Wheaton to a 10-6 record and an appearance in the ECAC Division II Championship game.

As a player at Springfield, Toner contributed to three NCAA playoff appearances and served as team captain twice. He garnered All-New England accolades and was tabbed an All-American by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
