Directing the camp at UNC Charlotte will be Lynda McCandlish. A two-time NCAA Division I National Champion McCandlish was named head women's lacrosse coach at Oberlin College on July 28, 2013.
McCandlish helped the Wildcats of Northwestern University win the NCAA title in 2005 and 2006. She was a part of the winningest class in school history at the time of her graduation with 64 wins over four years.Read Full Bio
McCandlish is a disciple of legendary Wildcats' Head Coach Kelly Amonte Hiller who has led the school to seven out of the last nine NCAA Championships. Since 2005, she has a record of 187-12 and is 215-33 in 13 years. Hiller's coaching tree runs deep as 18 of her former players or assistant coaches are currently coaching at the Division I level.
A native of Upper Arlington, Ohio, McCandlish led her high school alma mater to a state championship in 2008 as the head coach of the Golden Bears. She became the first women's lacrosse player in Ohio history to win a state championship as both a player and coach. Furthermore, she was also the first rookie head coach to win a state championship in lacrosse. In 2002 she helped Upper Arlington win the state crown as a player. In total the program has won five state titles and appeared in nine state final championship games since its inception in 1983.
Following her coaching stint at Upper Arlington, she worked as the head coach at San Diego State University from 2008 to 2009. She also ran the Wildcat Lacrosse Club where she coached elite players from across the San Diego area.
After spending a year in Seoul, South Korea, teaching English, McClandlish returned to the Columbus, Ohio, area where she has worked as a recruiter for the past three years. However, she has remained active in the lacrosse community by running the Mad Skillz Lacrosse Club where she offers various camps, clinics and private lessons.
McCandlish was a double major in communication studies and psychology at Northwestern.
