Fekete came to Quinnipiac after serving seven seasons as an assistant coach, the last five at Fairfield University. Fekete also spent the 1996 season as an assistant at nationally-ranked Brown University.

While at Fairfield, Fekete was an integral part of the Stags' successful elevation at the Division I level. In 2001, Fairfield finished 7-8, including a 3-2 mark in the highly-competitive Great Western Lacrosse League - its first year as a member of the conference.

From 1997-1999, the Stags recorded an impressive 31-18 overall mark, including a remarkable 21-2 record in MAAC Men's Lacrosse League action which resulted in two league titles (1997 and 1998). In addition, Fairfield captured back-to-back ECAC Division I Championships, defeating Colgate, 9-7, in 1998 and Mount St. Mary's, 15-4, in 1999.

Before his arrival at Fairfield, Fekete spent one year as an assistant at Brown University. In 1996, the Bears ranked in the top-ten nationally and finished with a final 7-6 record, including a 3-3 mark in the Ivy League.

Fekete gained additional experience in 1994 when he coached the United State Under-19 team at the 1994 World Lacrosse Games Festival in Manchester, England. From 1992-1995, he was the head boy's varsity lacrosse coach at Duxbury (Mass.) High School, leading the school to four consecutive MIAA tournament berths.

Fekete got his start in collegiate coaching in 1989, serving three seasons on the staff at the University of Arizona.

A native of Duxbury, Mass., Fekete attended Skidmore College and graduated in 1989 with a B.S. in business. While at Skidmore, Fekete was a member of the men's lacrosse and ice hockey squads.

Loved it!

My 11 year old son attended the NIke lacrosse camp and absolutely loved it. The food was great, the coaches were excellent and they really got to know the kids individually. My son made a lot of new friends and can't wait to go back.

Great camp!

This camp was a great camp. All the instructors were fun and had great knowledge about LAX. The facilities were A++ and the organization of the camp was top notch. I also liked that there were fewer campers to instructors than other LAX camps I have been to.

Wonderful experience!

The Nike LAX Camp was a wonderful experience for my son. He not only improved his game but made lots of new friends and gained LAX wisdom from the coaches.
