Adrianna Piontek is entering her first season as the head coach of the University of Montevallo women's lacrosse program.
Piontek, the second head coach in the history of the program, has spent the past two seasons as an assistant women’s lacrosse coach at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina, and brings four years of experience as an assistant coach across the NCAA Division I and Division II levels.
During her tenure at Lenoir-Rhyne, Piontek served as the defensive coordinator while assisting with recruiting both on and off campus, managing team travel and creating scouting reports on opponents.
Piontek helped guide Lenoir-Rhyne to a 21-16 record during her two-year tenure, including a perfect 9-0 record in South Atlantic Conference games in 2018, while helping the Bears reach the South Atlantic Conference Tournament championship game in both seasons.
Prior to her tenure at Lenoir-Rhyne, Piontek served as an assistant women’s lacrosse coach at two different NCAA Division I institutions, spending the 2016-17 academic year at Coastal Carolina University and serving one year at Kennesaw State University during the 2015-16 academic year.
While completing her master’s degree in sport management from Wingate University, Piontek served as a graduate assistant for the Bulldogs for two seasons. Piontek helped get the Bulldogs’ program off the ground as Wingate finished 9-8 on the season and earned a berth in the South Atlantic Conference Tournament in 2015.
Piontek earned her bachelor’s degree in sport administration in 2013 from the University of Cincinnati, where she was a four-year member of the Bearcats’ women’s lacrosse program and served as a team captain during her senior season. Piontek earned her master’s degree from Wingate University in the spring of 2015.
