Amanda Daniels & Maddie Coleman
Head Coach Amanda Daniels returns for her seventh season at Denison in 2020.
Few coaches have had a better start to their careers than Daniels. In six years as the Big Red head coach, she has guided Denison to six-straight NCAA Tournament appearances, four North Coast Athletic Conference championships and six NCAC Tournament titles. Denison will take a 37-game regular-season conference winning streak into the 2020 season. That streak dates back to the 2015 season. Daniels has compiled an impressive record of 85-30 (.739) while going 44-4 (.917) in NCAC contests. She was named the NCAC Coach of the Year in 2016 and was also named the IWLCA West Region Coach of the Year that season and most recently in 2019.
Maddie Coleman enters her seventh season as the Associate Head Coach for Denison in 2019. Prior to the 2019 season, Coleman was named the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Association Assistant Coach of the Year for Division III Women’s Lacrosse.
In 2019, the Big Red rolled through the NCAC with another percent 8-0 record. The team finished the year with a 16-5 record while facing one of the most difficult schedules in school history. Four of Denison’s five losses came against nationally-ranked opponents and on March 22, the Big Red defeated No. 23 Rowan, 16-15 in overtime. In the postseason awards, Jane Goodspeed was named to the IWLCA All-American team for the second time while repeating at the NCAC’s Defensive Player of the Year. First-year Casey McTague was named the NCAC’s Newcomer of the Year. Denison qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the 21st time and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the fifth time.

Our Student-Athlete Experience
The Denison Women’s Lacrosse Team means everything to me. From walking on the team freshman year and not knowing anyone to now going into my senior year, this program and team have become family. My teammates and the game of lacrosse have taught me so many life skills. A few that stand out are accountability, responsibility, and leadership. This program has given me the support and encouragement of living in New Zealand for five months by myself. It has pushed me to pursue a degree that fulfills me in Psychology and Education and it has simply pushed me to be a better person. I have learned skills that I wouldn’t have been able to learn anywhere else. Skills that will resonate with me forever and I can’t thank this program enough for that.Carlie Grandjean '20 Midfield

The DUWL program has such a meaningful impact on my overall Denison experience. My coaches have been incredible role models and my teammates have pushed me to be a better player, person, and student. I truly can’t imagine my college experience without DUWL in it.Leander Perun '20 Attacker

DUWL has not only given me a second family on the hill but has also provided me with a comfortable environment where I can not only grow immensely as an athlete but also inspires me to become my best self every single day. The people on this team are the most caring, thoughtful, and most of all fun that I have ever met before and truly made the transition to college so much easier. That’s what truly makes this team so special and Denison so different from any other school. We all really care about each other and root for each other on and off the field and at the end of the day, that’s what really counts and makes our team have such good chemistry. I honestly would not want to play for any other team and am grateful every single day for this goofy group of girls and this school.Casey McTague '22, Midfielder
Major: Educational Studies (Arlington, VA)
From the first day on campus as a freshman DUWL gave me 32 people immediately looking out for me and supporting me. It is so special to be a part of a team at Denison because not only do we support each other, but the entire athletic community at Denison is there supporting you in the classroom and on the field. We push each other to be better athletes, students, and people.Maeve Caldwell '22 Goalie

Denison women’s lacrosse has given me the opportunity to play at a very high level while also enjoying many aspects of a liberal arts education. I am able to take the classes I want, study abroad, and be apart of different organizations on campus. Playing for Denison women’s lacrosse means growing as a player and teammate in an intense, yet fun environment. The women on the team have become my best friends and I treasure the unique experiences we have shared together! Go Big Red!!Hope Adams '21 Attack

Denison women’s lacrosse to me means family. Our team has created a sense of sisterhood that I don’t believe can be found anywhere else. The freedom to be who we are on and off the field builds the team chemistry that keeps us running. Denison women’s lacrosse stretches much farther than just the field. We have lots of fun but know how to do get the job done. This team has made my Denison experience very special, and I couldn’t imagine going through it without my teammates and sisters by my side, DUWL!Molly Fischer '21 Midfield
