from press release
ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Coach Mark Prey, an up and comer in the lacrosse ranks, has been named the head men's lacrosse coach at Fontbonne University. Prey replaces former head coach Colin Smith who recently took a position to be closer to family.
"We are excited to announce Coach Prey as our next men's lacrosse coach and welcome him to the Fontbonne Family in his new role," said Director of Athletics, Maria Eftink. "He is well-known and highly regarded throughout the St. Louis Community and has achieved tremendous success throughout his young coaching career. We are looking forward to this new era of Fontbonne men's lacrosse under Coach Prey's leadership."
Prey is no stranger to Fontbonne University, having spent last season on staff as an assistant coach. Prey helped lead the Griffin squad to their second straight .500 season (8-8).
"It is a true honor to be named head coach of the Fontbonne Griffins men's lacrosse team, says Coach Prey. I am excited to join an athletic department with such historical excellence in the classroom, on the playing field, and in our community. Thank you, sincerely, for all the support from everyone involved throughout the coaching search. Go Griffins!"
Prey broke into the coaching ranks with the St. Louis Kings Youth Lacrosse Association in 2004. The past four years Prey has coached for the Webster Groves High School men's club team. He is currently coaching at every level of lacrosse, which is beneficial for Fontbonne recruiting in the future.
