Ross To Lead Sarah Lawrence Into Conference Play

Dr. Joe Ross has been named Head Coach of Men's Basketball at Sarah Lawrence College. The team joins the Hudson Valley Athletic Conference after six years as an independent.

Ross brings over ten years experience at the collegiate, high school, and AAU levels and is a two-time Hudson Valley Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, most recently with SUNY Purchase College. He serves as a professor with the School of Communication at Marist College, and lives in Patterson, NY, with his wife and three children.

"Dr. Ross has had a great impact on student athletes, both on and off of the court," says Sarah Lawrence Director of Athletics Mary LeVine. "We are very excited that he will be leading the team as it moves forward into conference play."

Sarah Lawrence is a liberal arts college for men and women, founded in 1926, with a distinctive system of education. It is known for having one of the lowest (9:1) student/faculty ratios in the country. At the core of the system are small classes, regular one-on-one student-faculty conferences, cross-disciplinary approaches and the integration of the creative arts within the curriculum.
