Following a national search, Bob Dignazio was named the first Head Coach of Men’s Lacrosse at Beloit College
in June of 2011.
Dignazio came to Beloit from Kenyon College in Ohio, where he served as the Lords’ Defensive and Recruiting Coordinator during the 2010 and 2011 seasons. He also served one season as the Defensive Coordinator at Randolph-Macon College after graduating from Kenyon in 2008.
During his time as a coach at Kenyon, Dignazio led a USILA North-South All-Star and eight All-Conference players. At Randolph-Macon, he helped lead the Yellow Jackets to an appearance in the USILA Top 25, the ODAC Tournament, the program's first victory over a ranked team in a decade, and the top-rated upset in the nation, according to Laxpower.com. He also coached two All-ODAC players that season.
As a player at Kenyon, he was a two-time All-North Coast Athletic Conference defenseman and was a member of two teams who made earned spots in the NCAA Division III Tournament. He started every game for three seasons and helped lead the team to a 33-10 record during that span. He earned Kenyon’s Bill Heiser Award at the end of his senior season for hard work, dedication and sportsmanship.
In addition to his positions at both Kenyon and Randolph-Macon, Dignazio, a native of Wallingford, Pennsylvania, also gained experience from working numerous camps, including the Peak 200, New England Top 150, Top 205, Tier 1, Texas 99, Adrenaline Showcase, Midwest 99, the Ohio State Buckeye Team Camp and Revolution Lacrosse Camp.
