Amanda O’Leary, an experienced coach who played the sport at its highest level, finished her seventh season at the helm of the Florida Gators in 2016 with the program’s sixth NCAA Tournament bid. O’Leary has turned her team into a national powerhouse since its inception in 2010. Hired to lead Florida’s inaugural lacrosse team on June 22, 2007, O’Leary had the opportunity to recruit and organize the program before the Gators began competition in the 2010 season. Her impressive career record of 276-94 (.746) ranks among the best of active head coaches in the nation.

She’s also coached 12 Gators who have earned 46 All-America honors, four Tewaaraton Award finalists and two Honda Sports Award nominees.
In 2005, O’Leary was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame. She also became a member of the Temple Owls’ Hall of Fame in the fall of 2004. O’Leary was named to the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse 25th Anniversary Team in the fall of 2006. She was the youngest player and starter on the 1989 U.S. World Cup team that claimed the International Federation of Women’s Lacrosse Association (IFWLA) gold medal in Perth, Australia. O’Leary was the second-leading scorer on the 1993 U.S. World Cup team which repeated as the IFWLA World Cup champions in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Prior to taking the Yale head coaching position, O’Leary was an assistant at Maryland for the 1992 and 1993 seasons. The Terrapins claimed the 1992 NCAA title and reached the semifinals in 1993.

The win was also the 400th in program history.
After a successful career as an All-American lacrosse player at Loyola, Tucker broke into the coaching ranks at her alma mater as an assistant.

Lee comes to Williams after coaching six years in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). The last two years Lee was an assistant coach at Middlebury College and the four years before Middlebury she was an assistant coach at Amherst College.
"I am quite pleased with the hiring of Alice Lee as the next head women's lacrosse coach at Williams," stated Melendy.

The committee was impressed with her evident passion for coaching and the game of lacrosse, as well as her plan for beginning the next chapter of Williams women's lacrosse. It is clear that following coaching legend Chris Mason is a big job, but I believe Alice is up to the challenge and well positioned to do so. I would like to thank the search committee for their time and thoughtful consideration during this process."
While coaching at Middlebury (2015-17) Lee helped guide the Panthers to the 2016 NESCAC and NCAA titles and was named the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Association (IWLCA) Division III National Assistant Coach of the Year.

Lee graduated from Central Connecticut State University in 2009 with a B.S. in Management and a concentration in Entrepreneurship.

Erika Eipp, an All-American this past season as an attacker at UMass, joined the Yale women’s lacrosse staff as an assistant coach in the fall of 2016.
Eipp finished her career second on UMass’ career points (229) and assists (114) lists. She led the Minutewomen to three straight NCAA Tournament appearances, including a quarterfinal appearance in 2016 that was part of a 20-2 season.
