|Title:||Head Field Hockey Coach|
In just three short seasons, UMW
head coach Lindsey Elliott has brought the field hockey
program to the pinnacle of success. She 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. Last fall saw the Eagles with a 15-3
record, and were consistently ranked in the top 15 nationally.
Elliott was a two-time first team All-American forward at Salisbury University, where she won two 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.
As an assistant coach for four years at Salisbury from 2004-2007, she was part of two more national championship squads, as the Sea Gulls finished with an 80-7 record during that time, winning four CAC Championships. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Salisbury in 2004 in physical education, and gained her Master of Education degree from Salisbury in 2006.
