Wolohan Named Interim Men’s And Women’s Water Polo Coach For 2019-20 Seasons


Staten Island, NY – Former Wagner College All-American and assistant coach, Ciaran Wolohan, has been elevated to the Interim Head Men's and Women's Water Polo coaching position for the 2019 and 2020 seasons, respectively, athletic director Walt Hameline announced on Thursday. Following his stellar Seahawk playing career, when he competed on the first two men's water polo teams in Wagner history under head coach Chris Radmonovich, the Manly, Australia native served as an assistant under Radmonovich for the 2018 men''s and the 2019 women's team, where he helped lead the Seahawks to their unprecedented sixth straight Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) title and sixth consecutive NCAA Tournament bid. Last month, Radmonovich stepped down as the head coach of the Green & White men's and women's programs to pursue a career in private business. Wolohan's one season as an assistant for the women's team was an historic one. In addition to playing a role in the Seahawks' winning their sixth straight MAAC title, Wagner set a program-record 30 victories (30-10 overall, 14-1 MAAC), and achieved a No. 19 ranking in the final Collegiate Water Polo (CWPA) Poll. Wolohan helped develop senior Erica Hardy and freshman Sofia Diaz Alvarez, each of whom were named Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) Honorable Mention All-American selections. "We're excited that Ciaran will continue as interim head coach of both programs this coming year," said Hameline. "We appreciate his abilities and loyalty and look forward to him building on the two program's successes in 2019-2020. With Wolohan at Radmonovich's side, the 2018 Seahawk men's team claimed its first winning season, finishing with an 18-14 mark, while in the spring, the 2019 women's team roared to its sixth consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) title and sixth consecutive NCAA Tournament bid. Additionally, Wolohan supported Radmonovich in the creation of training and game plans that were vital for each team's success. Wolohan, who spent two years at St. Aloysius College before become a member of Wagner's first-ever men's water polo team in 2016, earned a spot on the 2017 Association of Collegiate Water Polo Coaches (ACWPC) Men's Division I All-American Team, and will forever have the distinction of being the Seahawks' first-ever men's water polo All-American.
