Following the resignation of former women’s basketball head coach Todd Montana in August, the Athletic Department began their search for a new leader for the program. Because there was no winter season, this process wasn’t rushed and the hiring team aimed to be methodical in their selection.
This fall has been anything but ideal for Lasell’s baseball team. From the beginning of the semester, head coach Bill Uberti could tell he was going to have to work harder than usual to groom his players for a competitive spring season.

In a time when cancelations seem to be inevitable every single day, another victim has been taken: the winter sports season. Lasell’s announcement came on October 23, 11 days before the presidents’ council decided to make the same decision for the Great Northeast Athletic Conference. The counsel is made up of the head of each conference school.

For prospective students, a strong athletic department can be the reason for choosing a particular school. Lasell’s Athletic website reflects this idea, saying “Athletics are considered an integral part of sound educational experience with the goal to have each student-athlete strive to reach his or her potential, on and off the field.”
Although it is one of the smaller majors on campus, the athletic training program has effectively demonstrated to be one of the most challenging programs offered at Lasell. The students involved have showed their passion to eventually become athletic trainers (AT’s) through countless hours of studying and hands-on experiences.
