Lindsay Lewis is entering her third season at Virginia Tech, working closely with the midfield, as well as the goalies. Lewis received a title changed during this past offseason as she was promoted to Associate Head Coach.
Lewis has an integral part of the momentum shift for the Hokies in her first two seasons and has been a key element in the program’s recent success. On staff for both of the Hokies’ ACC victories in each of the past two seasons, Lewis assisted Burker from the sidelines during the historic back-to-back 10-win seasons, which have included the impressive 12-11 win over then-No. 16 Boston College and 2012’s defeat of in-state rival and then-No. 7 Virginia, 10-9 in overtime.
Lewis has brought a wealth of coaching experience to the Hokies as she served as an assistant coach at James Madison University from 2006-2009 before taking on recruiting, video and travel arrangements responsibilities as an assistant at George Washington. While at James Madison, Lewis was the defensive coach and recruiting coordinator, also assisting with travel plans and scouting. The Dukes were 25-25 during Lewis’ three seasons, which were highlighted by a trip to the Colonial Athletic Association title game in 2007.
The former Boston University standout has remained in the game beyond her coach experience since ending her college career, playing competitively with the United States' Developmental Lacrosse Team, a team that also featured current head coach Megan Burker. Lewis served as a team captain every year she was with the program, and also participated in the U.S. World Cup team's training camp in June of 2009. Lewis has also dedicated time to working with the Brine/Warrior Lacrosse's Research and Development (R&D) team, providing input in product design and testing and running promotional camps and clinics.
As a player, Lewis was a four-year starter at BU, as well as a four-time All-America East selection and All-America. The All-American graduated as the Terriers’ all-time scoring leader with 187 goals in her career. Lewis also ranks among the program’s all-time best in points (232) and draw controls (132), as well as ground balls (133) and caused turnovers (67). Lewis also helped guided BU to three America East championships and three NCAA Tournament appearances, including a quarterfinal run in 2005.
Lewis, a Glenelg, Md., native received a bachelor’s degree in hospitality administration in 2006 from Boston University.
