Michelle Tumolo

Michelle Tumolo was hired as the Noto Family Women's Lacrosse Head Coach in June of 2021.

Tumolo is no stranger to the game of lacrosse, as she boasts an impressive resume both as a coach and a player. Under her guidance, Wagner became one of the top teams in the Northeast Conference (NEC), making the conference championship game in 2021 after winning the NEC title in 2019. Prior to Wagner, the former All-American made stops at Oregon, Florida and Syracuse as an assistant coach.

“I am beyond excited and honored to be The Noto Family Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach at Army West Point! I want to first thank Krisitine Fowler, Mike Buddie, Anthony Noto and the entire search committee for this life changing opportunity. The time I spent with each member of the committee, the more I learned about the greatness of this academy and program. I can’t wait to lead these incredible young women, who have chosen a path of leadership and service. I can not wait to get started. Go Army!!”

With Tumolo calling the shots at Wagner, the Seahawks posted a combined record of 29-13 while making two conference championship games and an NCAA Tournament appearance. The team’s 16-4 mark in 2019 was good for the best winning percentage in the program’s history. Along the way, Tumolo mentored five NEC First-Team selections, two players-of-the-year and seven academic honor roll students.

Tumolo’s experience as a player has helped her create a number of high-powered scoring offenses at her previous destinations. While in Eugene, Tumolo coordinated the Oregon offensive attack as their top assistant coach. Thanks to her insight, the Ducks set a number of school records in 2018 while racking up 336 points for the second highest total in the program’s history.

Before Oregeon, Tumolo spent two-years at the University of Florida where her offense led the NCAA in goals per game with 15.52. The Gators posted a 33-8 record in her two years with the program, making the NCAA tournament in both seasons.

As a player, Tumolo was one of the most dangerous attackers in Syracuse history, ranking third on the school’s all-time points list with 278. In her junior season, Tumolo finished sixth on the NCAA points list with 78 while also being named a finalist for the Tewaarton Award - given every year to the nation’s top women’s lacrosse player.
