HAMBURG, NY - On August 31, Julia Decker was introduced as the new women’s lacrosse head coach at Hilbert College. Susan Viscomi, Director of Athletics, is pleased to welcome the college’s first full-time coach. The 2008 College of Brockport graduate will perform administrative support for the athletic department and will lead the 2011-12 club lacrosse team into its first year of full-varsity status during the 2012-13 academic year. Decker will draw from her coaching experiences as much as she will pull from her playing days as a Golden Eagle to lead the Hawks into Division III competition.
