Tracy Coyne Joins Dartmouth's Lacrosse Coaching Staff

Overall, three Notre Dame players earned Big East Attacker of the Year honors, while three others earned the league's Midfielder of the Year accolade under Coyne's guidance.

In addition to her collegiate coaching experience, Coyne was also the Canadian Women's Lacrosse National Team Head Coach from 1999-2005. During her time coaching Canada, Coyne's teams appeared in the medal round and earned fourth-place showings at both the 2001 and 2005 FIL World Cups.

Upon her appointment as Canada's head coach in 1999, Coyne went about rebuilding the national team two years after it had been disbanded following the 1997 World Cup.

Prior to her time at Notre Dame, Coyne served in the same role at Roanoke for seven seasons, winning five conference championships, making five trips to the NCAA Division III Tournament and posting a 91-21 (.813) record. While there, she guided the Maroons to the 1990 and 1992 NCAA semifinals and earned conference Coach of the Year honors in 1990 and 1995 in addition to her national recognition in her first season.

Her first head coaching position came at Denison for the 1988 and 1989 campaigns. While leading the Big Red for two seasons, Coyne captured the first two conference titles of her career and appeared in one NCAA Tournament.

A 1983 graduate of Ohio University with a degree in organizational communications while lettering in lacrosse, Coyne also received a master's degree in sports administration from St. Thomas University (Fla.) in 1985.
