|College:||Castleton State '11|
Craig MacDerment heads into his second season as a men's lacrosse assistant coach with Saint Michael's in 2013 after a standout playing career at Castleton State College.
In his first season with the Purple Knights, the 2012 squad went 11-5, setting a school record for victories and goals-against average (6.12.) while advancing to the Northeast-10 Tournament semifinals.
A four-year member of a Castleton State squad that went 49-27 overall during his career, including 28-2 in the North Atlantic Conference (NAC), MacDerment was a two-time captain and helped the Spartans qualify for two NCAA Division III Tournaments. MacDerment totaled 71 points in 72 career contests, but he was even better on the face-off X, winning 793 draws at a 67.2-percent clip and scooping up 512 ground balls. In addition to being a three-time NAC All-Conference selection and the team MVP as both a junior and senior, MacDerment was named a United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Scholar All-America as a senior.
MacDerment, who earned his degree in physical education in 2011, was heavily involved with community activities and serving in leadership positions. He was a community adviser for Castleton State Residence Life for two years and an Upward Bound mentor, where he worked with high school students looking to attend college.
In addition to being a clinician at the Castleton State lacrosse clinic for high schoolers, MacDerment worked in the College For Every Student mentoring program for four years, helped organize a Halloween party for children in the Castleton, Vt., area for three years, and worked his college's Accepted Students Day.
