Gombar Steps Down as Head Women's Lacrosse Coach

CASTINE, Maine – Sarah Gombar has stepped down as Maine Maritime Academy's Head Women's Lacrosse Coach. Gombar has accepted a position at Madonna University in her home state of Michigan, as the Assistant Director of Residential Life.

"I want to thank everyone at Maine Maritime Academy and the Castine community from the bottom of my heart, for all of their support and allowing me the honor of building this program," said Gombar. "Although this decision was extremely difficult, I know that this program is ready for a new chapter. There is an amazing group of women who are ready to lead this team to new heights and I couldn't be more proud to have been their coach."

Gombar was named Maine Maritime's first women's lacrosse coach in 2014 and led the Mariners as a club team in the same year. In 2015, in the first season of NCAA competition, Gombar led the Mariners to their first-ever win and coached two NAC All-Academic selections, and a NAC Woman of the Year nominee. In 2016, Gombar led the team to their second-straight IWLCA Zag Sports Academic Honor Squad selection and brought in a recruiting class that included a NAC Rookie of the Week.

"I will forever be a Mariner and my support for this program and the Academy will never fade," Gombar added, "I feel honored to have worked with such an amazing group of students and be a member of the family that is Maine Maritime Academy. Teams come and go but family is forever so as I depart Castine there is a piece of my heart that I leave behind."

"I am incredibly grateful for the outstanding effort Sarah has given the Academy in getting this program off of the ground," said Director of Athletics, Steve Peed. "Coach G established a strong, positive culture in her locker room and has assembled a great corps of young leaders. She leaves behind a strong foundation for the program."

The search for the next head coach will begin immediately. ... ar_Aug2016
