Kayla Treanor is the perfect hire to replace Gary Gait as the new head coach of the Syracuse women’s Lacrosse program. Treanor who played her high school lacrosse at Niskayuna was a First-Team All American all four seasons she played at Syracuse, and her resume made the hire an easy one. Treanor is only 27 years old but she has coaching experience at Harvard and Boston College. She was the Associate Head Coach at BC  where she helped lead the Eagles to the 2021 National Title by beating Syracuse in the title game. Treanor has all the qualities to lead Syracuse to a National Title, it will only be a matter of time.

We talked to Kayla this morning on Big Board Sports and she is excited to get started and is eager to win championships. Coaching is in her blood as her father coached the Niskayuna boys' basketball team for more than 20 years and was a NewsChannel 13 All-Star Scout for many seasons. At 27 years old, you have to respect not only her ability to knock it out of the park at the interview process but also the Syracuse AD seeing the talent in her and giving her the chance. The program is also in great shape after losing to Boston College in the championship last season where of course as I mentioned above, she was an assistant. Make sure to listen to the interview above and I know that we will be following her career very closely.
