Koffman Named Head Lacrosse Coach at Wentworth Tech

BOSTON, Mass. Jessie Koffman, head girls' lacrosse coach at Dedham High School, has been named head women's lacrosse coach at Wentworth Institute of Technology, effective immediately.

"Coach Koffman has proven herself as someone can build a program," said director of athletics Angel Ayres. "Her commitment to the sport as both a player and a coach, strong desire to coach as a career, and her contacts throughout the lacrosse community will certainly help us as we continue to build our young program. She will be a great asset for both our student-athletes and our department."

During her three seasons coaching the Marauders, Koffman helped the squad to 17 wins, including qualifying for the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association Tournament for the first time in program history during the 2013 season.

A native and current resident of Andover, Mass., Koffman began her collegiate playing career at Whittier College where she scored 20 points on 18 goals and two assists during the 2007 season for the Poets.

After spending the 2008 and 2009 seasons as an Assistant Varsity Coach and the Head Junior Varsity Girls Lacrosse Coach at Central Catholic High School in Lawrence, Mass., she played two seasons at Curry College where she scored 189 points (121 goals, 68 assists) in 39 games for the Colonels.

In her junior season (2011) she scored 79 goals and assisted on 50 others for 129 points, helping Curry to a 16-5 record and a berth in the championship game of the ECAC Division III New England Tournament. That season she ranked fourth in Division III in total points, fifth in points per game (6.14), eighth in goals, and 10th in assists.

During the 2010 season she was named Honorable Mention All-Commonwealth Coast Conference and was a First Team All-CCC selection in 2011. A captain during the 2011 season, she earned her Bachelor's degree in English in 2012.

"I am thrilled to become a part of the Wentworth athletics family," said Koffman. "The women's lacrosse team is dedicated, hard-working, and plays with heart. I am excited to see what we can accomplish together."

The Leopards will be entering their third season of varsity play in 2015 after the 2014 squad finished with a 3-12 record.
