In just two short seasons, UMW head coach Lindsey Elliott has brought the field hockey program to the pinnacle of success. The second-year head coach led the Eagles to a 20-2 record in 2012, finishing undefeated in Capital Athletic Conference play en route to the league championship, and advancing all the way to the program's second national championship final four. In her first season in 2011, she guided the Eagles to a 15-5 record and national ranking, in the process defeating three nationally-ranked teams.
Elliott was a two-time first team All-American forward at Salisbury University, where she won one NCAA Division III national championships and played in four NCAA Tournaments from 2000-2003. A two-time Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Year, she was twice named to the all-NCAA tournament team at the final four.Read Full Bio
