Sidorenko Named Field Hockey/Lacrosse Coach
08/10/2006

FROSTBURG, Md. - Frostburg State University athletic director Ralph Brewer has recently announced the hiring of Annie Sidorenko as head coach for both the field hockey and lacrosse programs.

Sidorenko enters her first season as head coach for both programs after serving as the graduate assistant coach last year.

Last fall, she helped guide the FSU field hockey team to an 11-6 overall record including two four-game winning streaks. The season was accented with a 1-0 upset of No. 15 ranked Catholic, 1-0.

This past spring, the Bobcat lacrosse team finished the season 6-11. FSU opened the season 1-4 but posted four wins in its next five games to even its record at 5-5. However, the Bobcats would struggle the rest of the season finishing with just one win in their final seven games.

Sidorenko came to FSU after a solid playing career at Division I Saint Francis University in Loretto, Pa. She was a four-year starter for the Red Flash field hockey team at both halfback and midfield and served as team captain as a senior.

She played three years of lacrosse as well, starting in the midfield, on defense and in goal.

Sidorenko brings a wealth of coaching experience to FSU. She has coached at the Lock Haven University and Wittenberg University field hockey camps as well as the International Scholar Athlete Games. She has served as director of Max Sports women’s field hockey and lacrosse programs.

She coached for Warrior Lacrosse at Salve Regina and has also coached group lacrosse and summer leagues at Field Sports of Ohio and also served as director and coach for the Nike Lacrosse Camp this past summer.

Sidorenko graduated from Saint Francis in May of 2005 with a degree in political science with a focus in international studies. She also minored in Spanish and history.

She spent a semester studying in Stirling, Scotland, during which time she coached the University of Stirling’s men’s lacrosse team.

Sidorenko is pursuing her master’s degree in business at Frostburg State.
