Women's Lacrosse


Former Middlebury College All-American Kate (Perine) Livesay ’03 has been named the school’s new women’s lacrosse assistant coach. She comes to Middlebury from NESCAC foe Trinity, where she served as the head coach for the past eight seasons, amassing a stunning career record of 127-26 (.830).


Longtime Middlebury College lacrosse coach and administrator Missy Foote will retire in June 2015 after a 38-year career at the College. Foote has coached women’s lacrosse at Middlebury for 34 years, and spent 21 years at the helm of the field hockey program. She is currently associate director of athletics and has also served as the department’s senior woman administrator for the past 17 years.


Three members of the Middlebury College women’s lacrosse team were honored when the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) announced its All-American teams. Sophomore Laurel Pascal (Greenwich, Conn.) and senior Hannah Deoul (West Palm Beach, Fla.) were named to the first team, while senior Liza Herzog (Baltimore, Md.) was a second-team honoree. Herzog collects her second All-American honor, while the All-American accolades are the first for both Deoul and Pascal, respectively. The trio helped guide the Panthers to a 12-6 record this spring against the nation’s toughest schedule.
