He was a four year starter and senior captain of his Elmira College Lacrosse team. After graduating college, Coach Spahn stayed involved in the sport, playing on local Rhode Island and Boston club teams and serving as an assistant coach for the Division I Providence College Friars. Coach Spahn spent his four years prior to coming to Kiski teaching English and directing the lacrosse program at The Winchendon School, which is a member of the competitive New England Prep School Athletic Conference’s second division. In just four years with Coach Spahn as head coach, the Winchendon program made tremendous strides, winning its first New England Championship in school history in 2004. That spring, US Lacrosse rewarded Coach Spahn for his tremendous efforts, naming him Eastern New England Coach of the Year and Head Coach of the east squad in the annual Division II New England Prep All Star game. Coach Spahn was also named the 2008 WPSLA Coach of the Year for his work on Kiski's sideline during their championship season. Coach Spahn will be assisted by Rob Howard who is in his second year at Kiski. Coach Howard played at Skidmore College and earned his Master's degree from DePaul University.
Coach Spahn works closely with the College Counseling Office and college coaches to place Kiski's lacrosse players at the best suitable college or university. Kiski's recent graduates have gone on to play at The U.S. Naval Academy, High Point University, Canisius, Queens' University, Elmira College, Alfred University, Kenyon College, Elizabethtown, Western New England College and Rochester Institute of Technolgy.
