Trinity Hires McDonald as Assistant Lacrosse and FH Coach

Hartford, Conn., August 9, 2013 - Trinity College has hired Stephanie McDonald (Downington, Pa.), a 2013 graduate of Franklin and Marshall College, as a graduate assistant coach for field hockey and women's lacrosse. An All-American for the Diplomats as a senior, McDonald earned her bachelor's degree in anthropology in May. As captain, she led Franklin and Marshall to an 18-2 record and the NCAA Tournament last fall. She replaces Shannon Malloy who left after two seasons to become an assistant coach at Bowdoin College.

Trinity field hockey, coached by Anne Parmenter (13th season), posted an 11-4 overall record in 2012, finishing in fourth place in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) with a 7-3 league mark. The Bantams qualified for the NESCAC Championship Tournament for the eighth time and the fifth year in a row, but lost, 3-2, in double overtime against Amherst. Trinity finished as the No. 17-ranked team in the nation.

The Bantam women's lacrosse team, coached by Kate Livesay (8th season), posted a 21-1 record in 2013, opening the season with 21 consecutive victories including a third straight NESCAC title and a second consecutive NCAA Division III regional championship crown before falling, 12-5, to Salisbury in the NCAA Finals. The 2012 NCAA Champion Bantams were ranked No. 1 in the nation every week of the year entering the NCAA Final Four and set a new College record with a 29-game winning streak from 2012 to 2013.
