Foote Honored By Lacrosse Magazine

January 22, 2008

Middlebury College women's lacrosse coach Missy Foote has been honored by Lacrosse Magazine. She was deemed one of the nation's top 10 men's or women's lacrosse coaches during the U.S. Lacrosse era (last 10 years). The magazine said, "Foote has four D3 titles to her credit in the USL era. To do so under the academic and institutional rigors othe the NESCAC is laudable."

Foote is now in her 31st year on the Middlebury athletic staff and her 27th year as head coach of women's lacrosse. She has led the Panthers to 14 straight appearances in the NCAA semifinals, with National Championships in '97, '99, '01, '02 and '04. Her '99, '01, '02 and '04 teams enjoyed perfect seasons. She has also guided the Panthers to two ECAC championships, all five NESCAC Championships and has an overall record of 319-72-1. Foote was the '94, '97, '00, '01 and '02 Division III New England and National Women's Lacrosse Coach of the Year. She earned NESCAC coach of the year honors from '01-'05.
