ts no coincidence that the most successful era in more than 50 years of Colorado College mens lacrosse has occurred during Sean Woods tenure as head coach.
A master motivator with an attention to detail, Woods has built upon the programs status as the most dominant in the West Region to one that is making waves at the national level.
During his first five seasons, the Tigers posted a combined record of 59-23, good for a .719 winning percentage, and won 10 or more games every year. CC also earned four consecutive appearances in the NCAA Division III Mens Lacrosse Championship, including last year when it played host to the programs first-ever postseason home game and rallied to defeat Whittier College, 11-10, in overtime.
At the same time, Colorado College extended its possession of the Locker-Stabler Cup, a travelling trophy awarded to the winner of the CC-Whittier regular-season showdown, to six years running.
Scott Singer, who helped guide the Roger Williams University mens lacrosse team to a 37-13 record from 2013 through 2016, is in his first season as an assistant coach at Colorado College.
Singer was involved in all aspects of the Hawks program, serving as defensive coordinator in 2014 and 15, and most recently offensive coordinator. His duties also included developing daily practice plans and implementing the strength and conditioning program.
During his four-year stint in Bristol, R.I., Singers players earned 30 all-Commonwealth Coast Conference mentions, a pair of ECAC All-Star selections and a USILA All-American.
Scott Popelar, a fixture in the Colorado lacrosse community for more than 15 years, enters his fifth season with the Colorado College mens program as an assistant coach and defensive coordinator.
During his first four years, the Tigers posted a combined 50-11 record and 5.94 goals-against average, and made the programs first two NCAA Tournament appearances.
Prior to joining the CC staff, Popelar served as an assistant coach at Kent Denver School, coaching the close defense and middies while helping coordinate the overall team defense. He helped lead the Sun Devils to the Colorado state championship in 2008, the state finals in 2011 and the semifinals in 2010, as well as quarterfinal appearances in 2009 and 2012.
