Through 24 seasons as head coach of the University of Mary Washington men’s lacrosse team, Kurt Glaeser has made the Eagles one of the most competitive squads in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
After stepping down as a dual sport Head Coach in 2008 (His Women’s Soccer teams qualified for 12 NCAA Tournaments and numerous Top 10 and Top 20 rankings) to focus on Men’s Lacrosse, Glaeser’s teams have been ranked in the USILA Top 20 National Poll, three of the last five years. In 2013, his team reached #17, one of four Capital Athletic Conference teams to be ranked last season. With 80% of his starters returning for 2014, the Eagles are shooting for their best year ever.Read Full Bio
A fine player in his own right, Glaeser’s playing career began as a midfielder at famed Loyola High School in Baltimore, Md., and continued both as a midfielder and an attack at Western Maryland College. In 1978, under legendary coach Bill Thomas, Glaeser (a tri-captain and all-conference selection) helped the Green Terror to its first Middle Atlantic Conference title. His post-collegiate career included playing experience with several club teams. Prior to coming to Fredericksburg, Glaeser was the head coach at Drew University in 1981 and 1982. He received his master of arts degree in physical education from Montclair State College.
