ARLINGTON, August 27 - Thomas Korrie is the new men's head coach in lacrosse for Marymount University according to Bill Finney, athletic director for the Arlington school. Korrie will begin his coaching duties when the academic school year begins next week.

Korrie, who has 15 years of coaching and teaching experience on the high school and collegiate level, most recently was the head coach at Westfield High School in Chantilly, VA. He also has coached as an assistant at Cornell University and at several high schools in the Syracuse area in New York State.

"Tom brings us a wealth of playing and coaching experience," said Bill Finney. "Although this will be his first head coaching job on the collegiate level, he has learned from some of lacrosse's coaching masters including Roy Simmons, Jr. at Syracuse and Richie Moran at Cornell."

"His ties to the central New York area and Northern Virginia should be fruitful for recruiting and his enthusiasm for the teaching and the game should prove an effective combination for Marymount."

Korrie is a 1986 graduate of Syracuse University holding a bachelor's degree in Health and Physical Education. He also has a master's degree in Physical Education from Cortland State College.

He played lacrosse four years at Syracuse where he was a two-time All American. His freshman year marked the first of SU's seven NCAA Championships. He also played in the North/South All State game, set team scoring records (since eclipsed by Gary Gait), played for the professional lacrosse team in Syracuse and was invited to the 1990 World Team.
