MONICA YEAKEL RESIGNS AS HEAD WOMEN'S LACROSSE COACH
A national search for her successor will begin immediately.
Coach Yeakel had just completed her ninth season at UMBC, and posted a career record of 78 wins and 73 defeats. The Retrievers made a pair of trips in the NCAA Tournament during her tenure, earning the program’s first-ever appearances in both 2002 and 2003. Under her guidance, UMBC won league titles in the Northeast Conference in five of six seasons (1998-2003) and compiled a record of 34-2 during that time. They also won a school record 12 games in both the 1999 and 2002 seasons. The Retrievers did earn berths in the America East Conference four-team playoff in each of the last two seasons, but did not advance past the semi-final round.
“Monica Yeakel had an excellent run as head women’s lacrosse coach at UMBC,” said Director of Athletics Dr. Charles Brown. “She brought us numerous conference championships and a pair of NCAA appearances. She had a significant impact in a very positive way on our women’s lacrosse program. We will miss her as she moves on to a new phase of her life.”
