Through 22 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.
A three-time Capital Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, Glaeser led his 2002 squad to the CAC championship game and set the school record with 11 wins. The Eagles returned to the title game in 2003 on the heels of a 10-win season. In 2004, UMW defeated 10th-ranked Cabrini College in another 10-win season in which the Eagles received their first-ever national ranking.
In ’06, the Eagles knocked off nationally ranked Hampden-Sydney College for the first time ever, and in 2007 they stopped nationally ranked St. Mary’s College.

Glaeser, who also served 18 years as head coach for UMW’s nationally renowned women’s soccer program, has posted more than 250 combined wins in the past decade and received eight conference Coach of the Year awards. In addition to the lacrosse program’s evolving into a power, his women’s soccer team also thrived, advancing to the sweet sixteen in 2003 after upsetting second-ranked Messiah College in the regional semifinals and moving to the elite eight in 2004 by topping Ohio Wesleyan in the sweet 16. In November 2007, it was announced that Glaeser would be a single-sport lacrosse coach beginning in 2008-09.
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.
A coach with a multi-sport background, Glaeser, his wife Linda, and children Matt and Suzannah live in Fredericksburg. Matt plays professional soccer in Miami, Fla., and Suzannah swam at the University of Connecticut.
