Reprinted from Winthrop University website John Sung was selected in May as the first women's lacrosse coach in school history as Winthrop will begin competition in the spring of 2013. Sung is considered a pioneer in women's lacrosse after beginning a successful program at Adrian College in Michigan four years ago. Sung compiled a four-year record of 46-19 as head coach at Adrian and led the Bulldogs to a 16-5 record and a first round appearance in the NCAA Div. III Championship this past season. The 2011 team put together a winning streak of 15 games before losing in the NCAA tournament. In addition to his accomplishments at Adrian College, the Troy, Michigan native also serves as head coach of the Haudenosaunee Nation, a mixture of Native American Nations. In 2009, he led the Iroquois National Team to the Federation of International Lacrosse World Cup in Prague, Czech Republic where it finished 11th out of 16 teams. Sung was the only NCAA Division III head coach to be asked to serve as head coach and his appointment as head coach has been extended until the 2013 FIL World Cup.
