Seideman Named Assistant at Gettysburg

from press release

GETTYSBURG, Pa. -- Eric Seideman, who has helped coach two of the top teams in Division III over the last four years, has been named as an assistant men's lacrosse coach at Gettysburg College, head coach Hank Janczyk has announced.

Seideman, who will also serve as an assistant in the sports information office, comes to the Battlefield from Ithaca College, where he has spent the past two years as an assistant coach. He worked at SUNY Cortland the previous two seasons, helping the Red Dragons to back-to-back national championship game appearances and the 2006 Division III title while serving as the top assistant coach, offensive coordinator, and recruiting coordinator.

At Ithaca, Seideman helped the Bombers to a two-year record of 31-5. In 2008, Ithaca reached the NCAA Division III semifinals for the first time in six years. He also helped coach eight All-Americans and one Empire 8 player of the year.

While at Cortland, Seideman helped direct the Red Dragons to a 33-9 record and a No. 1 national ranking while coaching 11 All-Americans and two SUNYAC players of the year. He helped the 2006 team to an 18-3 record and a 12-11 overtime victory over Salisbury University in the national championship game.

Seideman also worked at Vassar College in multiple capacities for one year, serving as an assistant men's lacrosse coach, an assistant women's soccer coach, sports information assistant, and small facilities coordinator.

A 2004 graduate of Haverford College, Seideman was a lacrosse standout for the Fords. He was a four-year starter, a three-time team MVP, and was selected to the All-Centennial Conference team twice. He graduated with the school's career midfield scoring record.

Seideman earned a bachelor of arts degree in English at Haverford and is a candidate for a master of science degree in learning, teaching, and social policy at Cornell University.

Gettysburg is coming off a 16-4 season in which it won its sixth straight Centennial Conference title and reached the NCAA Division III national championship game for the third time in school history.
