West Chester University women’s lacrosse head coach Ginny Martino was named the Division II Atlantic Region Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) it was recently announced.
Martino guided the Golden Rams to their second straight Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) regular-season and postseason tournament titles. She earned a spot in the NCAA Division II Tournament for the 13th time in the 20 years of the tournament’s existence and engineered a run to the national championship game for the 10th time, before bowing to Adelphi in the title clash. For her efforts, she was named the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division II Coach of the Year, after authoring a 20-3 record overall on the season.
The team’s 20 victories tied the school’s single-season mark set by the 2008 national champs – also coached by Martino. She was then selected to coach the North Squad in the IWLCA Senior All-Star Game in Maryland. She coached the PSAC Player of the Year and Philly-SIDA Performer of the Year (Maggie Stella), seven all-conference selections, six all-region picks and four IWLCA All-Americans this spring. The NCAA Division II all-time wins leader (331) averages an appearance in the national championship game every other season (10 appearances in 20 years of the DII Tournament) in which she coaches.
