Mary Teeters Joins William & Mary Lacrosse Coaching Staff

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (Aug. 13, 2013)-William and Mary lacrosse head coach Hillary Fratzke has announced the hiring of Mary Teeters as an assistant coach.

"I am thrilled to welcome Mary as an assistant coach at William and Mary," Fratzke said. "Mary brings so much knowledge and experience to the staff as well as an incredible work ethic and passion for the game. I have no doubt that she will be a vital component in continuing the storied tradition of success that the Tribe lacrosse program has established. Her enthusiasm for the game is infectious, and she will be a great leader and role-model for the team."

Teeters joins the Tribe staff after spending last season as an assistant coach at Vermont. While helping lead the Catamounts, Teeters worked primarily with the goalies and also assisted with the defense. A number of UV players benefited from Teeters' tutelage, as she helped a program-record seven Catamounts garner all-conference honors last season, including goalie Charlotte Lyons.

"I would like to thank Hillary Fratzke and Terry Driscoll for extending this fantastic opportunity to me," Teeters said. "I am thrilled to be working for an institution with such renown academics and athletics. I was very fortunate to have played for great coaches at Towson and learn from great coaches at Vermont. I look forward to drawing upon both experiences to help make the Tribe women's lacrosse program a top program in the country."

Teeters joined Vermont's staff after an outstanding career as a goalie at Towson where she helped the Tigers win two Colonial Athletic Association titles and earn three NCAA Tournament bids. A four-time All-CAA standout, Teeters also garnered first-team all-region distinction twice and was honored as an IWLCA All-American as a senior. Selected as a captain during her senior year, she was also a Tewaaraton Trophy nominee and played in the 2012 IWLCA North South All-Star game.

Teeters finished her career with 631 saves, becoming just the sixth player in program history to record more than 600 stops.

Teeters, a native of Ellicott City, Md., earned a bachelor of science degree in business administration and entrepreneurship from Towson in May of 2012.
