Shannon Smith Named New Head Lacrosse Coach at Hofstra

"Shannon has been a tremendous player, competitor and leader at the collegiate level for the past four years," stated Ricky Fried, head women's lacrosse coach at Georgetown University and U.S. Women's National Team Head Coach. "Her pedigree as a player speaks for itself, but Shannon's understanding of the game and her competitive nature will no doubt translate to coaching at this level. Her ability to relate to her players and recruit, especially on Long Island, will revitalize all of the players as well as the program as a whole. I look forward to watching her develop Hofstra's program in the coming years."

"We are very excited that Shannon Smith will be the next head women's lacrosse coach at Hofstra University," commented Pride Head Men's Lacrosse Coach Seth Tierney. "Her success on the field will without a doubt lead into a very long and successful coaching career. At Northwestern, she was the coach on the field, and we are all excited to support her as she begins to patrol the sidelines at James M. Shuart Stadium. Shannon has been successful at everything she has done thus far, and we are now looking forward to seeing the "Shannon Smith Era" begin at Hofstra."

Shannon's skills as a player were extraordinary. Her knowledge of the game, passion for the sport, leadership and hard work were equally as impressive," said Alex Frank, assistant women's lacrosse coach at Boston College and 2012 graduate of Northwestern. "Shannon was able to communicate and share her understanding of the game with her teammates every day, both on and off the field. I am confident that as the head coach at Hofstra, Shannon will pass along to the team her knowledge and passion for the game and will instill the same qualities that she exemplified to allow her players to achieve great success as student-athletes."
