Northeast athletic director Ken Miller confirmed the hiring of Kim Kolarik as the school’s new varsity girls lacrosse coach.
Kolarik replaces Kaitlyn Davis, who led the program for five years.
Kolarik is a 2009 graduate of South River High School who starred at goalie for the Seahawks and played collegiately at the University of Virginia.
Following her college playing career with the Cavaliers, Kolarik was an assistant coach with the women’s lacrosse teams at Lehigh University and Virginia Tech.
Kolarik is in her third year as a social studies teacher at Northeast High School and was the JV girls lacrosse coach prior to her installment as varsity coach.
“What excites me the most is to have the opportunity to build on the success of last year’s team and continue the ‘All In’ mindset of the program,” said Kolarik. “The focus this year will be to empower the girls to become the best they can be both on and off the field by creating a fun environment where each player is a integral part of the Northeast Lacrosse family.”
