Mequon, Wis. -
Michael Fahey was named the first graduate
assistant coach for the Concordia University Wisconsin men's
lacrosse program in late August.
Fahey joins CUW after a distinguished playing career. In high school, he was a first team all-conference selection his senior year and was also the runner-up goalie of the year in Western New York. After high school he attended Onondaga Community College for two years and was a member of the 2007 NJCAA Lacrosse National Championship team as well as being named an Academic All-American.
Fahey then moved on to Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, N.C., and graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor's degree in physical education. While at LMC, Fahey was one of the starting goalies, as well as being named academic all-conference multiple semesters. During Fahey's senior season Lees-McRae College was ranked second in the NCAA in saves per game.
He will serve as the top assistant and will work primarily with the defensive personnel and goaltenders. He also will be in charge of travel and play an integral role in recruiting and fundraising efforts.
"I am very excited to join the staff and to coach at Concordia University Wisconsin," Fahey said. "I want to thank head coach Jeff Roberts for giving me the opportunity and Athletics Director Dr. Rob Barnhill for welcoming me to the Falcon athletic family. Working with a great program has always been a goal of mine. The opportunity at Concordia University Wisconsin is a perfect fit."
"I am thrilled with the hiring of Michael," Roberts said. "During the process, it became evident that he was an advocate for positive leadership and character building. That, combined with his superior organizational skills and tireless work ethic, will make him a valuable addition to the Falcon lacrosse family."
Fahey, a native of Buffalo, N.Y., currently resides in Grafton, Wis. He is pursuing his Master's degree.
