PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The head coach of Plymouth State College's men's lacrosse program has announced his resignation.
Coach Nate Ostis, who spent four years in a Panther uniform followed by two seasons as head coach, has resigned to pursue other professional opportunities in Utah.
"Having the opportunity to be connected with my alma mater at this level has been an honor and tremendous privilege," said Ostis. "I'm proud of Panther Lacrosse and have appreciated all the support it has received over the years. I will miss being a part of this community and all the magical things it has to offer."
Ostis was a co-captain his junior and senior years at PSC in 1998 and 1999, leading the Panthers to an 18-14 record and a pair of Pilgrim League play-off berths. He guided the Panthers to a 17-14 overall record in his two seasons as head coach, going to the Pilgrim League play-offs in 2000 and the ECAC New England Tournament in 2001.
"I have challenged myself to new goals, and have accepted a teaching position in Utah with a prestigious non-profit organization that leads the world in developing Outdoor Educators," said Ostis. "This has been a long-time dream of mine, and the opportunity has recently presented itself."
PSC Athletic Director John P. Clark said Coach Ostis' part-time position will be filled as quickly as possible.
"We appreciate the efforts and success that Nate Ostis has achieved at Plymouth State College, both as a player and our head coach," said Clark. "He is a true leader and we are sure he will be successful in his new endeavor. We congratulate him on his hard work while he was here, and wish him the very best in the future."
