In her first year at the helm of the Sea Gulls, Lewandowski led SU to its best season in 10 years as it earned the No. 3 seed and advanced to the semifinals of the Capital Athletic Conference tournament. Salisbury finished the season 15-11 overall and 11-5 in the CAC, marking the first time since 2001-02 the Gulls posted double-digit wins in the league.

Lewandowski was named the 14th head coach in Salisbury history on July 1, 2011 after spending three seasons as an assistant coach at Gettysburg College. The program posted a 57-23 record (.713) during that span. The team's best performance came during the 2009-10 campaign, as Gettysburg collected 24 victories and advanced to the NCAA Division III "Sweet Sixteen."
