BUFFALO, N.Y. – Men's lacrosse head coach, Kameron Prince, has announced that he will step down from his current position to pursue other career aspirations.
Prince served as D'Youville men's lacrosse first head coach this past season, after being hired in July 2020. The Saints competed in their inaugural season this past year, playing 11 games, including six East Coast Conference games throughout the year.
Prince was an integral part of the Saints first NCAA season, coaching the young team to 54 goals through 11 games. A former goalie himself, Prince helped freshman Reece Eck to a team-high 126 saves with a 43.6 save percentage against tough competition. Eck recorded a season-high 24 saves against Felician in his collegiate debut. Eck's efforts between the pipes landed him on the ECC weekly honor roll twice this season.
Offensively, the Saints saw vast improvements over the course of the season. Freshman Tristan Engelhardt led the way with 29 goals, while Nick Sholett scored 12. Corbin Montreal added to the scoring efforts with five goals of his own. Engelhardt was named to the ECC weekly honor roll once during the season, while also earning ECC Rookie of the Week twice. Freshman Steve Lucas was integral to the Saints' offensive efforts, recording a team-high 14 assists. Suman Ramlall was credited with eight assists.
Prince played for the University of North Carolina-Charlotte's club lacrosse team after competing for two years at Division II Pfeiffer University. He received his bachelor's degree in history from UNC-Charlotte in 2015, before going on to earn his master's degree in sports management from Missouri Baptist in 2019.
A national search will begin immediately for D'Youville's next head men's lacrosse coach.
