Mike Harrington, Director of Athletics at Farmingdale State, is pleased to announce that Carrie Bolduc has been named Head Women's Lacrosse Coach at Farmingdale State.
Bolduc comes from UMass Amherst, where she was the head coach for the past four years. During that time, she compiled an overall record of 29-41 and led the Minutewomen to a runner-up finish in the Atlantic 10 Tournament (2003), a runner-up finish in the ECAC Tournament (2003), and two A-10 Tournament Semifinal appearances.
A 1999 graduate of Syracuse University with an arts education degree, Bolduc enjoyed a successful collegiate career at both Temple and Syracuse. At Temple, Bolduc started for the 1997 Final Four team which lost to eventual national champion, Maryland, 9-6. As a member of the inaugural Syracuse lacrosse team, Bolduc was named a team captain for her junior and senior years in 1998 and 1999. She guided the Orange to the ECAC Championship and earned IWLCA Division I North Region First Team All-America honors in 1999.
In her high school days, she was selected to play in the North / South senior game at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md. She attended Albany Academy for Girls in Albany, N.Y., where her prep lacrosse achievements led to her being named a high school All-American in 1995.
Bolduc recently completed her master's degree in Interior and Architectural Design at the University of Massachusetts in December 2004. She replaces Christie Ruppert who was the coach at Farmingdale the past two seasons.
