College Lacrosse: Starsia inks extension with UVa.

Item by Chris Graham

UVa. men’s lacrosse coach Dom Starsia has agreed to a contract extension that will keep the three-time national title-winning coach in Charlottesville through 2012.

“I am about to start my 17th year here at the University of Virginia. The time has come and gone in a heartbeat. My family and I have always felt the respect and appreciation of everyone in the athletic department and it has been a mutual admiration from the first day. It did not require a contract extension or public recognition to strengthen those feelings,” said Starsia, whose contract had been set to expire after the 2010 season.

Starsia is the winningest coach in ACC history with a 184-61 record in 16 seasons. He is a seven-time ACC coach of the year and has guided the Cavs to five national-title-game appearances and a perfect 17-0 season in 2006.
