Alex Stone // Coach Profile
Coach Alex Stone
Alex Stone, a player and coach in one of the strongest Division III conferences for the past eight years, joined the Muhlenberg College staff as an assistant men’s lacrosse coach in the summer of 2017. He serves as defensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator.
Stone was the head coach at Bard College for the last three seasons, following one year as an assistant. Guiding a fledgling program that achieved varsity status in 2013, Stone led the Raptors to a one-win improvement from the previous year in both 2016 and 2017 while competing in the Liberty League, a conference that had five of its eight teams receive votes in the final 2017 Division III poll.
In Stone’s first year as a head coach, Bard defeated Skidmore in just its fourth Liberty League game ever; a win that LaxPower.com rated as the biggest upset in Division III that year.
Stone coached three Bard players who received All-Liberty League awards, including rookie of the year in 2015, honorable mention selections in 2015 and 2017 and a second-team pick in 2016.
A native of Cranford, N.J., Stone played four years of lacrosse at Union College, helping the Dutchmen to one Liberty League championship and two NCAA Tournament appearances. He was a crucial part of Union’s trip to the NCAA “Sweet 16” in 2011 and the “Elite Eight” in 2012. Stone earned All-Liberty League honors as a faceoff specialist twice and served as a team captain as a senior.
Stone, who graduated from Union with a degree in biology in 2013, was head coach for the East Coast Lacrosse Club in Edison, N.J., in the summers of 2012 and 2013 and has worked numerous camps and clinics.
