Magee named women's lacrosse assistant coach
NEWPORT, R.I. - Salve Regina University is proud to announce the hiring of Amanda Magee (Columbus, N.J.) as an assistant coach for women's lacrosse. She joins head coach Jennifer Foster and fellow assistant coach Stacey Lanham on staff as the Seahawks head into a promising 2012 season.
Magee comes to Salve Regina already possessing the knowledge of what it takes to thrive at the collegiate level, and more specifically, what it takes to compete in the talented Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC).
She spent four seasons (2007-10) as the starting goalie for in-state rival Roger Williams University, setting the program's career marks for wins (51), saves (728), goals-against average (7.96), and save percentage (.574). She helped lead the Hawks to three consecutive CCC Championship appearances, as well as a pair of Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championship tournament berths. She led the entire nation in save percentage at the Division-III level in both her junior and senior seasons, earning a pair of All-CCC First Team selections, as well as a place on the 2010 Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (WLCA) Division-III All-Regional Team.
In addition to her background as a student-athlete, Magee has gained valuable coaching experience by participating at several camps and clinics for the past three years, while also performing as the assistant coach for women's lacrosse at Northern Burlington County Regional High School in 2011.
Magee earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications from Roger Williams in 2010 with a concentration in public relations.
The Seahawks enter 2012 having matched their second highest mark for wins in each of the past two seasons. The team will look to build off their recent success as they eye a third consecutive CCC Championship tournament berth.
