Former Siena Women's Lacrosse great Lindsey Rosecrans '09 enters her second season as an assistant coach at her alma mater.
"I am excited to have Lindsey on board as an assistant coach," said head coach Andrea Duffy. "She brings a wealth of knowledge with her from her playing and coaching experience. I have great respect for Lindsey as both a player and a coach and I am looking forward to working with her. Her passion for the game and dedication to mentoring student-athletes is exactly what we are looking for here at Siena to help us continue building our women's lacrosse program."
In her first season, Rosecrans helped guide the Saints to a tied for third place finish in the MAAC and the program's third straight berth in the conference tournament. She helped mentor the program's first-ever MAAC Co-Defensive Player of the Year Amanda Corso and under her tutelage the Saints boasted a program-record five All-MAAC selections and tied a school record with eight MAAC All-Academic Team honorees.
A 2009 Siena College graduate and native of nearby Niskayuna, Rosecrans spent the previous two seasons prior to her appointment working under head coach Peter Melito at her alma mater of Niskayuna High. Under her guidance the Silver Warriors posted a 27-8 (.771) record and won back-to-back Section II Championships while advancing to the Regional Finals both years.
At Niskayuna, Rosecrans coached current Saints Shannon Pfohl and Alyssa Treanor. Additionally, she mentored All-Americans Ritchie Assini and Kayla Treanor, who is rated as the No. 2 prospect in the nation according to ESPN RISE.
Rosecrans also served for one season as a volunteer assistant coach at nearby RPI and has been a head coach for both the Albany Elite and Albany Power Club Lacrosse teams.
Rosecrans enjoyed one of the finest careers in Siena Women's Lacrosse history and upon graduation was the program's all-time leader in points (153), goals (120) and draw controls (111). In Duffy's first season as head coach in 2009, Rosecrans was named to the All-MAAC First Team after breaking the school's single-season record with 65 points.
Rosecrans is currently pursuing her doctorate in Educational Psychology at the University at Albany.
