Racquel Prager | Head Coach
Director of Athletics Ralph Patterson announced the hiring of Racquel Prager to lead the Wolves' women's lacrosse program in January 2019.
"This is a very important hire for Newberry College," Patterson stated, "and I'm excited that Racquel has accepted the opportunity to build a winning women's lacrosse program."
"I'm grateful for the opportunity that Newberry and Ralph have given me," Prager added, "and I'm excited to be a part of the Newberry Family."
Prager came to Newberry from Division I Gardner-Webb, where she began working as an assistant coach focusing on defense and recruiting in August. Prior to Gardner-Webb, Prager spent five seasons as the head coach at Dorman High School in Spartanburg County.
The Cavaliers won back-to-back Region III-5A championships in 2017 and 2018 under Prager's tutelage. She also took home a pair of Region Coach of the Year honors while serving as a math teacher within the school district.
Prager also spent three years coaching with Greenville's Greenlight Lacrosse Club, mentoring girls ages 8-11, and was South Carolina's National Team Coach in 2018.
The New York native had a stellar playing career for Limestone from 2009-12. She was a two-time All-American, including earning first-team distinction in 2012, and was named Conference Carolinas Female Athlete of the Year the previous season. She was named all-conference three times, won two Conference Carolinas Tournament MVP awards, and was named to the league's All-Academic Team for three consecutive seasons.
Prager graduated from Limestone in 2012 with a degree in Elementary Education and earned a Master's degree in Middle Levels Mathematics in 2014 from Converse.
