About Our Coaches

David Pomeroy

David Pomeroy became the inaugural women's lacrosse coach and brings 10 years of coaching experience to Marian.  He most recently was the head women's lacrosse coach at Division III Northland College where the LumberJills played their inaugural season this past spring.   Prior to Northland, Pomeroy served as an assistant coach, head goalie coach and recruiting coordinator for three seasons at Division II Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  During his time with the Crimson Hawks, 13 student-athletes earned all-conference recognition, nine student-athletes were named all-region and six student-athletes earned All-American status.  IUP also finished the season ranked in the national polls all three seasons and off the field were named an IWLCA All-Academic team twice.

"I want to thank president Manion and athletic director Jason Bartelt with the trust they have bestowed upon me to lead the inaugural women's lacrosse program at Marian University," commented Pomeroy.  "The support from the upper administration and the athletic department makes Marian an amazing fit for my personality and goals to succeed on and off the field.  I look forward to joining Sabre nation.  I am extremely grateful towards Northland College athletics for allowing me the opportunity to start their program.  With the addition of Dr. Hal Haynes Northland is certainly headed in the right direction."

Pomeroy was a standout prep coach prior to his time at IUP and also spent time at the University of Wyoming, University of Denver, Kutztown University and Loyola University of Maryland.  Along with his recent coaching duties, Pomeroy has served as an NCAA Division III representative for the IWLCA Officials Recruitment and Development committee since 2016 along with the NCAA Division II IWLCA Bylaws committee from 2013-2016.
