SU roundup: Wenzel added to men’s lacrosse staff

WINCHESTER — Shenandoah University head men’s lacrosse coach Tim Marshall announced Thursday that he has hired Kyle Wenzel as his assistant coach.

Wenzel, who won national championships at SUNY-Cortland and at Onondaga (N.Y.) Community College, will be the top assistant with the SU men’s program.

Wenzel helped the Red Dragons to the 2009 NCAA Division III national championship by playing in 10 games that season as a long-stick defenseman.

In his senior season, Wenzel played in 17 games as Cortland made an appearance in the national semifinals.

At OCC, he was a member of the 2007 NJCAA national championship squad.

“I am very happy to have Kyle join us here at Shenandoah,” Marshall said. “He has played at the highest level of Division III lacrosse and knows what it takes to build a successful program.

“I have been impressed with his desire to be a college coach and have no doubt that he is going to be a valuable addition to our program.”

Shenandoah opens its 2014 season, its first since Marshall took the helm of the program in August, in mid-February.
