Kesecker tabbed to lead Women’s Lacrosse program at Potomac State
Potomac State College of West Virginia University has announced the hiring of Katelyn Kesecker as the Head Coach of the Women’s Lacrosse program. Set to begin the spring of 2015, Potomac State has added women’s lacrosse for the first time in school history.
Kesecker’s playing career is stacked with over ten years of experience. At Arundel High School in Gambrills, Maryland, she was a dominant attack player on the women’s lacrosse team. She lettered in both lacrosse and swimming, and graduated as a member of the National Honors Society. Kesecker went on to attend Frostburg State University earning a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science after just three years, graduating as a junior. As a starter on the women’s lacrosse team, Kesecker transitioned as a midfielder and draw specialist, finishing all three seasons as one of the team’s top scorers.
Kesecker is currently completing her Master’s degree in Exercise Science as an online student for California University of Pennsylvania, set to graduate in the spring of 2015. She is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and a Certified Speed Specialist through the National Association of Speed and Explosion.
Prior to Potomac State, Kesecker coached a youth swim team with a roster of 100 competing in the Central Maryland Swim League. She successfully led the team to a winning season all four years at the program.
Kesecker is extremely excited to get the program started, and to introduce the sport of lacrosse to an unfamiliar area.
