Nicholas Noheimer has recently joined the Lasell College Lasers as the Head Coach position for both the Cross Country and Track and Field teams. Noheimer has had a distin- guished career thus far, having received indoor New England honors in 2009, while set- ting the indoor mile record at 4:37.2.

With great success in college, Noheimer decided to extend his Cross Country career. His first coaching job was at Springfield Col- lege as a graduate assistant for the cross coun- try and Track and Field team,where he also earned his master’s degree. Following Spring- field, he went on to be an assistant coach at American International College.

After a few years, Noheimer decided it was time to prove his talents and experience. He applied at Lasell this summer for the head coaching position following the departure of former head coach, James Martin.

“I think I can bring together a little com- munity of athletes,” said Noheimer about his goals and aspirations for the team. “There’s been such success, but I’m looking to make it more consistent and to be a competitor in the GNAC conference.”

Noheimer went on to mention the area surrounding Lasell College. “I think it’s the perfect little neighborhood, many resources which are within a half hour away. I also find it pretty cool that the students basically live in mansions,” he said.

Noheimer indicated that as the new coach, his biggest objective will be to increase the number of student-athletes on the track and field team, along with recruiting athletes around the tri-state area. “I’m looking for- ward to going to practices everyday and meet- ing new athletes, staff, and other students around campus,” said Noheimer. “I’m really excited to bring in the new batch of athletes and start a new chapter here at Lasell,” said Noheimer. His enthusiasm and energy will be beneficial for the teams.
