Fowler Joins Gettysburg Lacrosse Staff as an Assistant Coach

GETTYSBURG, Pa. Former Hamilton College goalkeeper Kate Fowler has been named an assistant coach with Gettysburg College according to a recent announcement made by head coach Carol Cantele '83.

Fowler joins the Bullets staff following a two-year stint as an assistant coach with the women's lacrosse program at Connecticut College in New London, Conn. She takes over for Marisa Marcellino, who left Gettysburg following a successful two-year tenure to pursue a graduate degree in journalism at Columbia University.

"We are very excited to welcome Kate to Gettysburg College," said Cantele, who ranks sixth in NCAA women's lacrosse history with 329 career victories. "She brings a passion for the game and for the development of players. She knows the hard work and dedication that is required to achieve success and she left us feeling no doubt that she is ready to take on that challenge here at Gettysburg. "

At Connecticut College, Fowler had a hand in all aspects of the women's lacrosse program's day-to-day operation, including recruiting, strength and conditioning, and film breakdown. She oversaw the defense as well and coached an all-conference second-team goalie in 2013. Additionally, Fowler worked with the goalkeepers on the women's soccer team and served as an intern within the athletic department, working with facilities and game management.

Fowler served as the head coach of the Nor'easter Club 2015 White/Grey Team in New Haven, Conn in 2012 and 2013. She was also the Goalkeeper Director at the Yale University Bulldog Elite Lacrosse Camp in each of the last four summers.

Fowler was a two-sport student-athlete at Hamilton, playing in goal for both the women's soccer and women's lacrosse programs. On the soccer pitch, she was a two-year starter in goal and finished her career with 131 saves, six shutouts, and a GAA of 0.89. She was the back-up goalie for the 2007 team which finished 16-2-2, won the Liberty League regular season co-championship, and competed in the NCAA Division III Tournament.

On the lacrosse field, Fowler was a three-year starter in Hamilton's cage. The Continentals won the NCAA championship in Fowler's first year as a starter and finished national runner-up in 2010. In 2009, Hamilton advanced to the NCAA semis. The Continentals claimed four Liberty League titles and posted a combined record of 74-8 during Fowler's tenure.

Fowler was a three-time all-conference selection in women's lacrosse, including second-team honors in 2010. She was also tabbed All-Empire Region Second Team in 2010 and she was named to the NCAA All-Tournament Team in 2008 and 2010. She finished her career with the school record for goals against average at 6.66.

Fowler graduated from Hamilton with a degree in economics in 2010. Noteworthy, she received her degree in a special ceremony held at Gettysburg College, which hosted the 2010 NCAA Championships. She was a member of Hamilton's Dean's List and she was awarded the Gelas Memorial Prize, which is awarded to the senior that has shown the greatest development in strength of character, leadership, and athletic ability.

Fowler joins one of the most successful women's lacrosse programs in the nation. Gettysburg has competed in 12-straight national tournaments and has won eight conference titles since 2000. The Bullets won the national title in 2011 and have advanced to the semifinals five times in the last eight seasons. Last spring, Gettysburg went 19-2, won the Centennial Conference title, and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
