“We are thrilled to announce the hiring of Zach Czulada as our graduate assistant. From the moment I met him, I could tell that his energy and passion for lacrosse and for teaching will be contagious to our student-athletes. Zach had an excellent playing career at Piedmont College, and will work extensively with our defense and our goalies – but more importantly I know that he will be a pillar that our men can lean on and place their trust in. Coach Czulada stood out as a ‘go-getter’ throughout the interview process, and that will be a critical trait to have as he makes his way through the coaching ranks. He has already hit the ground running since we brought him on a few weeks ago! Our student-athletes and our staff are so fortunate to bring him on board.”
Zach graduated with a B.S. in Sports and Fitness Administration and will be pursuing his M.B.A. here at North Greenville over the next 2 years.
