Coaching Change Not A Glitch for Koala Lacrosse

Daniel Carter will take over the Columbia College Women's Lacrosse Program as Interim Head Coach. Brit Kadlowec, former Columbia College Head Women's Lacrosse Coach, is taking the Head Women's Lacrosse position at Barton College in Wilson, NC. Kadlowec will be serving as the first women's lacrosse coach in the history of Barton College and will be starting the program from scratch. Kadlowec was key to building the Columbia College team into a conference and regional power in two short seasons.

Carter, originally hired as the Assistant Lacrosse Coach last fall, is very humbled and excited about becoming a head coach. Coach Carter is very enthusiastic about the position and is looking forward to the 2016 season. Carter graduated from Emmanuel College (GA) where he was a captain on the men's varsity lacrosse team.

Carter's main message to the players this season comes from a quote from his former coach, Patrick Johnston, "The lifespan of a team is one season." Carter says, "People come and people may go, but what's most important is that the people here with us now, are all-in and willing to give everything they have as a teammate.  They must prepare and play for the team they are a part of now."

The Koalas will face their first competition of the spring at North Greenville University for a scrimmage February 3rd at 4:00 PM.  Shortly thereafter the Koalas will play in their first regular season game away at AAC conference opponent Reinhardt in arguably one of the toughest challenges in their 2016 schedule.

We wish Coach Kadlowec well in his new position and are excited to have Coach Carter join the Columbia College staff as the new head lacrosse coach.
