Virginia Women's Lacrosse Names Colleen Smith as Assistant Coach
Former Head Coach at Wagner to Join Cavalier Staff
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Virginia Head Women's Lacrosse Coach Julie Myers announced today that she has hired Colleen Smith as an assistant coach.
Smith, who was the head coach at Wagner from 1995-1997, was the first head coach in the history of the Seahawks' program. She led the team to a 5-5 record in their first season and last year the Seahawks finished with a 7-8 record.
Smith, a 1995 graduate of Rowan College, was named Player of the Year in Division III in 1995. A four-year starter at Rowan, she was named to the United States squad in 1994 and played from 1994-1995. As a sophomore in 1993, Smith led the Profs to a berth in the Division III NCAA tournament and a berth in the tournament's Final Eight. In 1994 and 1995, Smith was named a first team All-American. She also was named to the All-American squad in field hockey in 1993.
"I am very excited about the addition of Colleen to Virginia lacrosse," said Myers. "She brings tremendous energy and enthusiasm to the program. Her college coaching experience will be a huge asset to our players as well as to our staff."
Virginia finished the season with a 14-5 record and a berth in the NCAA tournament.
