Trey Keeley

Trey Keeley is set to begin his first season at Cleveland State.

"I am thrilled to welcome Trey, Katrina and Remy to the Viking lacrosse family," said German. "I have known Trey for years and always admired the job he did as an assistant coach at Ohio Wesleyan, as well as the last few years as head coach at Baldwin Wallace. He brings a wealth of experience to our program and will be a huge asset for our student-athletes as we compete for an ASUN championship this spring."

Keeley comes to Cleveland State after most recently serving as the head men's lacrosse coach at Baldwin Wallace University from 2017-21 where he oversaw all facets of the lacrosse program including budget management, scheduling and executing recruiting strategies, among other duties. Over his four seasons in Berea, Ohio, Keeley accumulated a 42-14 record, which included two championship appearances and a 2021 Ohio Athletic Conference title.

"The opportunity to work with a great person and coach, like Andy German, is something I couldn't pass up and I am humbled and grateful to learn and grow under the leadership of Scott Garrett and Tyler Jones," Keely said. "The vision Coach German and the administration have for the future of lacrosse is inspiring and I look forward to getting to work right away. My family and I love Cleveland we cannot wait to get to know the student-athletes and Cleveland State community. I'm excited to get to work, as we prepare for the program's first-ever run in the ASUN this spring."

Named the 2021 OAC Coach of the Year, Keeley coached 11 All-OAC Players and the 2021 OAC Rookie of the Year, Jake Nanosky, last season. The Yellow Jackets received votes in the USILA Top 20 for four weeks during the 2021 campaign, finishing No. 3 in the NCAA Regional IV rankings.

All together, Keeley has coached 37 All-OAC selections throughout his four years at BW, including 15 Academic All-OAC student-athletes and three IMLCA All-Region selections. In 2019, Keeley's Yellow Jackets led all of NCAA Division III men's lacrosse programs in shooting percentage (40.1%) and ranked fourth in scoring offense (18.18 gpg) and 25th in man up efficiency (40.4%).

"I am forever grateful to Baldwin Wallace for the opportunity to serve the university as its men's lacrosse head coach," said Keeley.
