Lee Joins Amherst Staff
from press release
AMHERST, Mass. – Amherst College women's lacrosse head coach Chris Paradis recently announced the hiring of Alice Lee as an assistant coach for the 2012 season. A former standout at Division I Central Connecticut State University, Lee joins the Lord Jeffs after a successful two-year stint as an assistant coach with Buffalo State College.
"Alice brings knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience to this position and will be a tremendous asset to our program. She is a western Massachusetts native with strong coaching and administrative experience under her belt already," said Paradis. "While her primary expertise is goalkeeping, Alice is also well rounded in her knowledge of coaching field players. She is a passionate coach and someone who will help bring our program to the next level."
As an assistant at Buffalo State, Lee primarily worked with the squad's goalkeepers and defenders. During her tenure with the Bengals, she aided in the development of a second-team IWLCA All-American, five IWLCA All-Region selections and 10 All-SUNYAC honorees. In two seasons with Buffalo, the squad posted a 22-11 overall mark with a 13-3 league ledger, twice advancing to the semifinals of the SUNYAC Championship and finishing 19th in the final 2011 LaxPower national poll.
In addition to her primary responsibilities assisting with practice planning, film breakdown and scouting, Lee aided in the program's recruiting, alumni relations and fundraising efforts, while also serving as the team's academic advisor. She also served as an event management supervisor for Buffalo State's varsity athletic programs and a SAAC/Champs LifeSkills Assistant.
Having coached at various camps and club teams throughout the country, she currently serves on the IWLCA Division III Branding Committee, while participating in the IWLCA's Project IRM, a minority coach mentoring program.
As an undergraduate, Lee enjoyed a decorated career at CCSU, earning All-Conference honors on three occasions. A two-time team captain, Lee graduated with the program's single-season records in saves, save percentage and ground balls, while also holding the program's career mark in stops.
Equally accomplished in the classroom, the two-time Dean's List recipient and CCSU Student-Athlete Scholar and President's Citation award winner earned her Bachelor of Science in Management with a concentration in Entrepreneurship in 2009.
