On this week’s episode of New England Lacrosse Journal’s “Chasing The Goal” podcast, hosts Kyle Devitte and Jack Piatelli were joined by Pace University head coach Tom Mariano.
Mariano is entering his 10th season at Pace. He previously coached at Sacred Heart, where his tenure lasted 17 years and encompassed the team’s transition from Division 2 to D-1.
He also has an extensive coaching history with Major League Lacrosse, where he worked with the Ohio Machine, Chesapeake Bayhawks and Florida Launch.
Last year Pace went 11-4 with key victories over Bentley, St. Michael’s and Southern New Hampshire in the regular season. The Setters bowed out in the first round of the NE-10 tournament, 7-3, to Bentley, but they return a strong core and will look to finish in the top three of the NE-10 in 2023.
