BALTIMORE, Md. - UMBC Women's Lacrosse head coach Amy Slade and former Retriever standout Carolyn Jamison (Westminster, Md./Westminster) helped lead the Women's Professional Lacrosse League (WPLL)'s Baltimore Brave to a 13-12 victory over the New York Fight on July 29.
"Coaching the Brave was such a privilege and an honor," said Slade. "The WPLL is such a great platform for these amazing lacrosse players to showcase their skill. What the WPLL provides on and off the field is paving the way for the future of our sport and girls everywhere."
Last season in the inaugural WPLL championship, the Brave fell, 12-11, to the New England Command. This season, the Brave were down 11-8 in the final quarter of the game, the team scored five fourth-quarter goals to help the team seal its first WPLL championship.
For Slade, coaching one of her former players at the next level has been an exciting moment.
"This season was so special having CJ by my side. It's great for UMBC and I am so proud of CJ."
