Marisa DeAngelis

Marisa DeAngelis enters her fourth season as head women's lacrosse coach at Holy Family with the 2021 season. DeAngelis became Holy Family's sixth head coach in program history on June 15, 2017.

Holy Family entered the 2020 season with its largest recruiting class since the inaugural 2009 season. DeAngelis and her staff welcomed seven newcomers to the mix. Unfortunately, the 2020 season was cut short three games in due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

DeAngelis came to Holy Family after spending two seasons at Delaware Valley University where she served as assistant coach. While a member of the Aggies’ staff, DeAngelis was the head recruiting coordinator and also prepared and implemented practice plans.

DeAngelis was a four-year defensive starter for Kean University and served as team captain during her senior season in 2015. She earned first-team all-conference honors from both the New Jersey Athletic Conference and Skyline Conference her freshman season. DeAngelis was also a three-time selection to the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaching Association’s (IWLCA) Academic Honor team.

DeAngelis is also the head coach for various teams with Ultimate Lacrosse in New Jersey and has filled that role since 2013. She graduated from Kean in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology. DeAngelis is currently pursuing her MBA in General Business at Delaware Valley and is scheduled to graduate this summer.

I have used the Soccer in College site for 8 years, and it has helped me keep my personal and soccer information up to date, and has helped be track college contacts and interest. I think the site helped me prepare for college offers, and helped me determine that I wanted to play for UNC.
