Tim Barth joined the Morrisville State College men’s lacrosse staff in the Fall 2013 as an assistant coach.
Over the course of three years with Barth on staff, Morrisville State has been one of the top teams in the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC), posting a three year record of 37 wins and 13 losses, while going 22-1 in NEAC play.
Barth has played an instrumental role on the coaching staff in leading Morrisville State to back-to-back undefeated conference seasons, regular season and tournament titles, as well as the program's first and second appearances in the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament.
Following a historical 2015 season for the Mustangs, the Mustang staff continued the success from the previous season and again dominated the NEAC en route to their fifth regular season title, and second straight appearance in the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament.
The success of the Mustangs in 2016 led to an overall 13-3 record, and a fifth undefeated NEAC record of 8-0, as Barth joined head coach Jason Longo in earning Coaching Staff of the Year honors by their peers for a second straight season. Morrisville State also swept major conference awards with Rookie (Nick Geswaldo), Offensive (Louie Geswaldo) and Defensive (Chris Fiore) Player of the Year accolades as they landed a program best nine on the All-Conference teams.
The 2015 season was a historical one for the Mustang program, as they captured the NEAC Tournament title to earn the men's program its first ever bid to the NCAA Division III Championship Tournament.
The Mustangs finished the season with an 11-6 overall record, posting their fourth undefeated NEAC season in program history at 8-0, and their fourth regular season NEAC title.
After struggling in the 2013 season, Longo restructured its staff with the addition of Barth and fellow assistant coach Tyler Gale, and brought the Mustangs back to the top of the conference ranks in 2014, finishing with a 13-4 overall record, 6-1 in NEAC action, and their third appearance in the Championship Finals. Seven earned post-season recognition for their efforts on the field, as well as several receiving academic accolades as scholar-athletes.
A 2008 graduate of Morrisville State College, Barth competed for the Mustangs for two seasons in the midfield, captaining the team as a sophomore, while earning State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Commissioner’s List and All-Academic Team accolades in each season for excellence in academics.
Following graduation from Morrisville State in 2008 with an associate’s degree in adolescent education, Barth continued his playing career at St. John Fisher College for two additional seasons, earning Commissioner’s List honors for the Empire 8 Conference in each season with the Cardinals.
Barth earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in adolescent education and history from St. John Fisher in 2010, and has served as a global history and geography teacher with the Rush-Henrietta Central School District for more than a year.
Bringing a wealth of experience back to the field that once was his own, Barth returns to Morrisville State from Rush-Henrietta High where he served as an assistant coach for the modified program and volunteer assistant for the varsity lacrosse team in 2012. He has also served as a youth coach for the Henrietta Town Recreation Indoor League, as an assistant coach for the Outdoor Recreation League, and as assistant coach for the Greece Thunder Youth Lacrosse Program.
