Orangeburg, NY -- Dominican College Director of Athletics, Joseph Clinton, has named the hiring of Taryn Brechbiel as the new Head Women's Lacrosse Coach. A 2007 graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas College, Brechbiel was a four year member of the women's lacrosse program where she was named to the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association Merit Squad and Academic Honor Roll for three straight seasons.
"Taryn will be a welcomed addition to the Athletic Department," said Clinton. "Her enthusiasm and love for the game is apparent and I believe that she has the tools to build our women's lacrosse program into one of the elite programs in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC)."
While at St. Thomas Aquinas College, Brechbiel was a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society, the Alpha Chi National Honor Society and the Chi Alpha Sigma National College Athlete Honor Society. She also received the 2007 Francis Cardinal Spellman Award for highest academic excellence in an undergraduate program.
Brechbiel earned her B.S. in Business Administration and is currently pursuing her MBA in Finance from St. Thomas Aquinas College.
"I'm very excited to take the next step in my lacrosse career as a coach here at Dominican College," Brechbiel said. "Playing college lacrosse was one of the best times of my life, and I hope to provide these student-athletes with the same type of positive experience I had. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to coach this team and can't wait to get started."
