White has transformed San Diego State's fledgling program to a strong competitor in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF), with back-to-back MPSF Tournament appearances highlighting her last two seasons at the program's helm.
In 2015, White propelled San Diego State to its best season in program history. The team a 9-8 mark and a fifth-place finish in the MPSF conference, resulting in its second-straight MPSF Tournament appearance. The team set a program mark for wins and produced a school-record seven-game winning streak. San Diego State saw three of its own pick up All-MPSF accolades, as Christina Ricciardulli and Lauren Paul became the first two Aztecs to earn first team honors, and Michaela Jarvis was named to the second team. The Aztecs also found success off the field, with nine student-athletes garnering MPSF All-Academic honors, a program best.
White led SDSU to its first postseason berth in program history in 2014, as the Aztecs began the season with a 4-0 mark, and set several new program records including most conference victories (4), most road victories (4) and most player of the week honors (6). San Diego State also had attack Michaela Jarvis, midfielder Christina Ricciardulli and defender Lauren Paul named to the all-MPSF second team, while the Aztecs played a challenging schedule that featured four teams that made the NCAA Tournament and six teams that were ranked or received votes in either the IWLCA Coaches Poll or the Brine Women's Media Poll.
The Aztecs made good progress under White the second season in program history, finishing with eight wins overall and three victories in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) play. In the process, SDSU had a program-best four-game winning streak from March 10-22, capped off with its first victory over conference foe Oregon. In addition, the Aztecs had three players earn MPSF Player of the Week honors, as sophomore Christina Ricciardulli, sophomore Bailey Ewing and sophomore Madison Wallace were each all-MPSF second-team selections.
In her first season at San Diego State, White led the Aztecs to five victories in their inaugural campaign, including two wins in MPSF action. SDSU claimed its first victory in program history on Feb. 17 with a 14-9 decision over Cincinnati at Aztec Lacrosse Field. SDSU then earned a close 11-10 win vs. Saint Mary's (March 2), followed by cruising to a 15-8 victory over Fresno State in the Aztecs' final home game (March 20). SDSU closed out its first season on a high note by winning two of its last four games, including a 19-6 victory at Regis University (April 7) and a close 13-12 win at Saint Mary's (April 13).
In 2010, White came to Montezuma Mesa after spending two seasons at Loyola University in Baltimore, Md., where she served as the first assistant coach, instructing the midfield and defensive players. White was also the coordinator of recruiting and team travel.
During her two years at Loyola, the Greyhounds went 22-13 (.629) and earned a trip to the 2010 BIG EAST Tournament for the first time in program history, while leading the nation in caused turnovers per game in both 2009 and 2010. In addition, White helped coach a second-team All-American in 2010 and four all-region selections.
Prior to Loyola, White returned to her alma mater at Ohio State in 2008, where she served as an assistant coach. While in Columbus, White helped the Buckeyes to a 10-8 record. OSU finished the season ranked 11th in the country in ground balls per game.

A native of London, Ontario, Canada, White has played in four IFWLA World Cups for her native country. In 2001 and 2005, she helped Canada to a pair of fourth-place finishes. White led the Canadians to its first bronze medal in 27 years in the 2009 World Cup, and propelled them to a silver medal in the 2013 World Cup played in Canada. At the 2005 tournament, White ranked in the top five for caused turnovers per game and was nominated for the All-World team.
A four-year letterwinner at Ohio State, White (formerly Kylee Reade) was a four-time Buckeye scholar-athlete pick and an Academic All-Big Ten performer on three occasions. She co-captained the 2002 squad to an 11-5 mark, runner-up finish in the American Lacrosse Conference, and Ohio State's first NCAA bid. White caused 28 turnovers in 2001 and still ranks among the OSU all-time leaders in caused turnovers and ground balls.
White was a two-year member of the Ohio State Student-Athlete Advisory Board and served as a co-captain of the inaugural Ohio State women's varsity hockey team in 1999-2000.
In 1995, White played on the inaugural U19 Canadian National Team and helped lead the team to the First World Championship, finishing fourth.

I learned new stick skills, improved my footwork, and so much more that will help me when I get back to my teams practices and in games.
