(919) 760-8725 Email... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .................. scottla@meredith.edu Lauren Scott enters her fifth season at the helm of Meredith College lacrosse with three consecutive conference tournament championships, three conference Rookie of the Year awards, two Player of the Year honors, and backto-back Coach of the Year selections. Last year’s team secured a place in NCAA Division III history as the National Scoring Offense Statistical Champion. In 2016 Meredith lacrosse secured the USA South Regular Season crown for the first time with an undefeated league record and earned a number one ranking in the NCAA Division III Mid-South Region. In both 2014 and 2015, the Avenging Angels dropped just one conference match to finish the USA South regular season in second place but went on to upset the top seed to claim a tournament championship and the NCAA Division III automatic bid. Katie Burnet, who concluded her collegiate career in 2016 as Meredith’s most decorated lacrosse student-athlete, earned the program’s first All-Region nod in 2014 and set two USA South records. Thirty-eight of Scott’s players have garnered USA South All-Academic honors. Scott hails from Danbury (Conn.) High School where she served as the girl’s varsity lacrosse coach from 2004-12. In just five seasons, Scott took the lacrosse program from a season record of 2-14 in 2003 to boast a Division II State Championship title in 2008. In addition to her tenure at Danbury, Scott also served as a Connecticut Lighting premier coach for two seasons and as a volunteer assistant at her alma mater, Western Connecticut State University in 2004. An advocate for the sport of lacrosse and as outreach to her community, Scott served seven years as the girl’s director of Nutmeg Sports “West” for girl’s lacrosse. In addition, she originated and directed Community Lacrosse, a self-run and organized lacrosse camp for the greater-Danbury area. Scott lettered four seasons of women’s lacrosse for Western Connecticut State. During her career with the Colonials, she played multiple positions and set school records in scoring, ground balls, caused turnovers and points. She earned all-conference accolades three times while with Western and turned in Little East Conference Player of the Week honors twice. Scott earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Western Connecticut State and also holds a teaching certificate and minor in Exercise Science from Southern Connecticut State University.

KATE MCKINLEY Kate McKinley joined Meredith College as the assistant women’s lacrosse coach in August 2012. The Danbury, Connecticut, native comes to Meredith after three years as head coach of the Connecticut Lightning, where her team won the 2010 New England Youth Tournament. McKinley also served four seasons as an assistant coach for New Canaan Youth Lacrosse Association where she helped her team to three state titles. She was an assistant director for the Summer Laxin’ Lacrosse Camp for four years. McKinley was an attacker for the Fairfield University women’s lacrosse team. During her tenure with the program, the Stags were ranked among the NCAA’s Top 20 Division I programs in 2009. Fairfield won the 2009 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference championship, securing the program’s first NCAA tournament appearance. The Stags were conference runner-ups for the next three seasons. At Danbury High School, McKinley was a three-sport varsity athlete in soccer, indoor track and lacrosse. She was a member of the 2008 Lacrosse State Championship team under Scott’s direction.
