Former Penn State standout Kelly Lechner joined the GW lacrosse staff as an assistant coach in February 2016.
"Kelly comes from a great program at Penn State, where she made a significant impact over four years," said head coach Tracy Coyne. "That experience will be really valuable as we build our program and try to become more of a presence in the A-10 like she helped Penn State become a presence nationally. She recognizes the hard work that's involved, she knows how to contribute to a positive culture, and she was very respected by her teammates. I think she'll mesh really well with our philosophy. She's really upbeat and positive, and I'm excited to have her."
