Carly Zinn has been selected as York College's new field hockey head coach.

Zinn replaces Jamie Swartz who resigned her position in the spring. Swartz had guided the Spartan program for the last five seasons, accumulating a record of 52-49.

Zinn comes to the Spartan program after serving the last three years as the lead assistant coach at Dickinson College, including a four-month stint as the acting head coach while the Red Devils were in the midst of a search.

Zinn was a three-year member of the Lock Haven University field hockey team, missing her sophomore year because of a medical redshirt. She helped lead the Eagles to a stellar mark of 54-14 (79.4 percent) during her career.

Zinn will assume her duties immediately. The Spartans will open their 2013 campaign on Aug. 30 at home against Randolph-Macon. She is the seventh coach in the history of the 45-year history of the Spartan field hockey program. York has an overall program record of 327-302-33.
