From Press Release

Immaculata University Director of Athletics Amy Badorf announced this morning the hiring of former Harriton coach George Dick as the head women’s lacrosse coach for the 2020 season and the 10th coach in program history.

Dick steps into this role after a successful 12-year tenure as the head girls lacrosse coach at Harriton High School where he led the Rams to two state championships (2013, 2019) and was twice named Phillylacrosse.com Coach of the Year.

“My family and I are very excited to be joining the Mighty Macs,” opened Coach Dick. “Immaculata is rich in tradition both athletically and academically and I am looking forward to working with the team to continue that success. I would like to thank Amy Badorf and the rest of the selection committee for giving me this opportunity and I cannot wait for the season to start.”

During his time at Harriton, Dick masterminded a career record of 204-64. The winningest girls lacrosse coach in Harriton’s 59-year program history, Dick qualified for the District 1 playoffs at the conclusion of every season with the program. Dick also successfully mentored 15 US Lacrosse All-Americans and 31 Academic All-Americans during his time at the helm of the Harriton program.

“Coach Dick has tremendous lacrosse knowledge and a strong record and developing and mentoring student-athletes,” opened Badorf. “He is a high-energy leader who has a passion for the sport and is capable of building a program that can compete for an Atlantic East Championship” concluded Badorf.

In addition to his notable achievements with the Harriton program, Dick also founded and grew the Quaker City Girls Lacrosse Club, based out of Narbeth. Under his leadership, the club grew from three teams with 56 total players in 2010 to eight teams and 165 players by 2017. In that time, the club placed over 50 players at NCAA Divison I, II and III Colleges and Universities.

A leader in the local girl’s lacrosse landscape, Dick has also held leadership positions with the Pennsylvania Area School Girls Lacrosse Association (PASLA), the PIAA District 1 Seeding Committee, and Lower Merion Girls Youth Lacrosse.

Dick earned his Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Haverford College where he played basketball and lacrosse for the Fords before continuing his education at Northwestern University where he earned his MBA from the prestigious J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management.

Immaculata will begin its 2020 season on February 19 on the road at Arcadia beginning at 4 p.m. before returning home on the 25th to host Susquehanna with that game also set to begin at 4 p.m.
