VVLC Girls Coaching Staff
Emily started playing lacrosse in 3rd grade in Annapolis Maryland. She played high school lacrosse at Mcdonogh School in Baltimore and played competitive club ball year round. While she loved lacrosse, she took an opportunity that came to pursue her other love, running, at the collegiate level. Emily ran four years of Cross Country and Track at Bucknell University, graduating in 2009. After moving to Vail, Emily joined the Vail Ski Patrol and also is a yoga teacher in the valley. She is very excited to be coaching and involved in growing the Vail Lax Women's program.
Carrie started playing lacrosse in 7th grade for the club team in Mankato, MN and played there throughout high school. She also played for the Minnesota Elite team her Junior and Senior years. She fell in love with the University of Kansas and decided to go there and play club lacrosse. While there, she was the only girl in league history to be awarded first team all conference every season. She was also awarded Central Plains Women's Lacrosse League player of the year in 2010 as well as Academic All-American in 2008 and 2009.

Katie spent most of her lacrosse days in Central Florida. Proud to be a part of the first few classes to help expand the game in the area….Katie began playing lacrosse in the sixth grade as soon as it was available! While in High School in Winter Springs, the Bears Varsity team made the FHSAA Final Four 2 years in a row - Junior and Senior year seasons. After that, Katie moved forward and played WCLA Division 1 Club Ball for the nationally ranked Knights at University of Central Florida. Katie worked her way up to President and team captain during her time at UCF and helped managed the completely student run team: which included a variety of tasks like planning/scheduling nationally competitive games, youth tournaments, travel, and running the budget for the team! Sophomore year while at UCF the Knights placed 2nd in the Southeastern Women’s Lacrosse League Championship and won a bid to the WDIA National Tournament in Scottsdale, AZ- placing 11th out of 270 teams. Katie primarily played midfield during her lacrosse career. Prior to moving to Vail, Katie was living in Massachusetts where there wasn’t much down time to get involved with Lacrosse so she is excited to be involved with VVLC and to share her passion for the sport!
