Eve Levinson, the only head coach Mercer’s women’s lacrosse program has known in its short existence, has resigned.
Levinson will be pursuing other professional opportunities closer to her family in the Mid-Atlantic Region, according to a release from the school.
“It has been an honor to create the foundation for Mercer’s women’s lacrosse program, and I’m proud of what we were able to accomplish in such a short time,” Levinson said. “The tradition we’ve started here has set the stage for the continued growth and success of this team. I wish all involved with the future of Mercer women’s lacrosse the best of luck.”
Mercer came up one win short of reaching the A-Sun tournament in its first season, and four players earned All-A-Sun honors.
“I would like to thank Eve for her years of service in establishing our Mercer women’s lacrosse program,” athletics director Jim Cole said. “She has exceeded our expectations in terms of team quality, team academics and fundraising. Her hard work and dedication to our student-athletes is very much appreciated, and I wish her all the best in her career as she relocates closer to home.”
