Zach Nedbalski is entering his third year at the helm of the Methodist men's lacrosse team, having posted a record of 3-10 in the program's first year of competition after recruting for an entire year.
Nedbalski had spent the previous two years as a graduate assistant coach at Berry College. He served as the Defensive Coordinator and Recruiting Coordinator while helping to see the program through its initial two seasons.
Before joining Berry, Nedbalski spent two years as an assistant at Randolph-Macon College. He helped lead R-MC to 14 wins and back-to-back appearances in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference postseason tournament in his two seasons there.
Nedbalski went to R-MC after spending the 2007-2008 season in London, England. As a Local Development Officer for the English Lacrosse Association, Nedbalski helped develop lacrosse in South London primary and secondary schools. He created lesson plans, practice plans, and coached U-16 and men's teams.
Before heading across the pond, Nedbalski attended Queen's University of Charlotte, N.C., where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in History. Nedbalski was part of the first men's lacrosse team in school history. As a member of the lacrosse team, Nedbalski served as a two-year captain and earned the Coach's Award in 2004 and 2007. During his junior season, the Royals snapped Limestone's 64-game conference win streak and went to the conference championship game. They were ranked in the USILA Division II Top 10.
Nedbalski recently earned his master's degree in secondary education from Berry.
