Bowdoin College women’s lacrosse coach Liz Grote has been elected the new president of the International Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association, the IWLCA said Tuesday.
Five vacancies were contested in this election cycle, including two for executive committee positions and three for NCAA divisional representatives. All new board members will begin their three-year terms of service July 1.
“We’re very excited about our newly elected board members,” outgoing IWLCA president Kathy Taylor said. “Each has a strong track record of experience in the sport and service to our association that will serve them well in their roles. We are (in) unprecedented times and we will need strong leadership to help navigate the obstacles to come.”
Grote (Simsbury, Conn.) is currently in her 18th year as the head coach at Bowdoin. Over the course of her tenure, she has won more than 65 percent of her games and led the Polar Bears to two NESCAC championship games and five NCAA Division 3 tournaments.
