NEW PALTZ - Nicole Paulucci, who competed at Iona College from 2010-13, has been named the assistant women’s soccer coach at the State University of New York at New Paltz, as announced Thursday by the Department of Athletics, Wellness & Recreation.

"We are so excited about the energy and positive enthusiasm that Nicole will be bringing to the program," said head coach Colleen Bruley. "She boasts NCAA Division I playing experience, has a tremendous amount of passion for the game and is very excited to become a part of our family. We are extremely excited to have such a positive and enthusiastic young coach joining us this season."

A May 2014 graduate, Paulucci helped lead the Gaels to two Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) playoff appearances in 2012 and 2013 and served as team captain during her junior year.

In her career, she tallied seven goals and four assists for 18 points. A native of Manalapan, N.J., Paulucci earned her bachelor’s degree from Iona in speech communication.

Previously, Paulucci worked as a player evaluator with the Eastern New York Olympic Development Program based in Stringham, N.Y. In addition, she provided athletic training services to the Golden Touch and Battle Monmouth Soccer Clubs.

"I have been lucky enough to have always been a part of a team, and I truly value that," Paulucci explained. "I am so excited to start college coaching because it will give me the opportunity to learn from Coach Bruley, and it will allow me to positively motivate all the players on and off the field."

The 2014 women’s soccer season kicks off as the Hawks host the Michelle Vargas-Robin Memorial Tournament from August 29-31.
