Two time All-American goalkeeper at Indiana University and recent Stanford Assistant Coach Cassie Wyckoff was named Head Coach of both the men’s and women’s teams at Washington & Jefferson College on Thursday. Wyckoff takes over for interim coach Nikola Malezanov. Former coach Jay O’Neil resigned at the end of the men’s season last November.

Cassie brings energy and passion for the sport of water polo to the W&J campus… She has played the sport at the highest levels and is eager to now make her mark as a coach. We are thrilled to have Cassie as our head water polo coach.

In May the school announced demoting the two teams to club status only to reverse its decision a day later.

The Presidents men begin the 2016 season at the Mercyhurst Laker Invitational on Sept. 9. The women’s team finished 14-0 in 2016 before losing 13-9 in the CWPA Division III championship game.
