Washington College announces changes to coaching staff
Washington College announced Wednesday the addition of three new assistant coaches to join head coach Jeff Shirk’s staff. They are Corey Bulken, Larry Kline and Shayne Lynch.
“I am very excited to have these three young coaches join the staff,” Shirk said in the written statement distributed by the school. “All of them bring impressive backgrounds, great work ethic, and specific skill sets that will be instrumental in helping us reach our goals.”
Bulken completed his senior season at Le Moyne where he led Division II in faceoff percentage (69.2%) and was named the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association Division II Specialty Player of the Year. A two-time All-American, he paced the team in faceoff percentage for three consecutive years and in ground balls for two straight campaigns and played in three consecutive NCAA tournament finals.
Kline spent last season as an assistant coach at Binghamton, his alma mater. He was a goalie and four-year team captain, helping lead the Bearcats to America East championships in 2007 and 2009.
Lynch completed an internship under athletic director Bryan Matthews this past winter and spring. Lynch was a four-year letterwinner at Wesley College, serving as a team captain as both a junior and senior.
The trio joins Shirk and returning assistant coach J.L. Reppert on the Shoremen’s staff. Andrew Delaney left after the end of the 2011 season to become the first head men’s coach at Arcadia University.
Washington went 5-9 overall and 2-6 in the Centennial Conference. The team improved one game from last season’s 4-10 mark.
