Publication Date: 1/8/2013

Brice Queener has been named Rhodes’ first Women’s Lacrosse Coach. Rhodes announced in the fall plans to sponsor an NCAA Women’s Lacrosse program beginning the 2013-14 academic/sports year.

Queener is a 2005 graduate of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where he earned a bachelor of arts degree in government. At Georgetown, he was a four-year starter at midfield and is the only player in Georgetown Men’s Lacrosse history to play in every game during his career. Also during his career, the Hoyas were selected to participate in the NCAA tournament.

Most recently, Queener served as the Women’s Lacrosse Director at The Hill Academy in Toronto, Canada, where he helped establish and coach the first Women’s Lacrosse teams in 2011 and 2012. In addition, he served as the Men’s Lacrosse Head Prep Coach and the Varsity and Post-Grad Assistant. Queener also taught English and social studies as well as served as Residence Director from 2009 to 2012.

“We are very excited about Brice Queener joining the Rhodes community,” said Rhodes Director of Athletics Mike Clary. “During his interview, he expressed a keen understanding of the mission at Rhodes as well as the student-athlete balance model Rhodes aspires. Coach Queener’s knowledge and enthusiasm for lacrosse will be contagious for our current and future women′s lacrosse players.”
