Lacrosse: Delaware tabs Fossner
Former Niskayuna goaltending standout Noah Fossner has been named an assistant lacrosse coach at the University of Delaware, where he led the Blue Hens to a pair of NCAA Division I tournament appearances.
Delaware head coach Bob Shillinglaw announced the hire Wednesday. Fossner was an assistant at Rutgers University the past two years, and replaces Rob Cross, who recently accepted a position at Siena College.
Fossner started for Niskayuna from 2002-06, and was a key contributor on five Suburban Council division-winning teams and Section II title editions as a junior and senior. He was selected a US Lacrosse All-American as a junior and senior, and holds the school record for career saves with 933.
During the 2005 season, Fossner and his teammates made history by becoming Section II’s first group of boys to play in a state championship game.
Fossner was a four-year letter-winner at Delaware, and a three-time team captain from 2009-11. He provided key stops in 2010 and 2011 when the Blue Hens claimed Colonial Athletic Association Tournament championships and advanced to the NCAA event.
As a senior he earned Delaware, CAA tournament and USILA North-South Senior All-Star Game most valuable player honors.
