CONWAY, S.C. (Aug. 9, 2011) - Former William and Mary lacrosse standout Jaime Sellers ('08) has been hired as the head women's lacrosse coach at Coastal Carolina. Sellers becomes the program's first head coach, as the Chanticleers will offically begin compeition in the spring of 2013.
One of Sellers' former teammates at W&M, Anne Harrington ('07), also continued her climb up the coaching ranks and was recently hired as an assistant at Connecticut.
After a prolific, record-setting collegiate playing career, Sellers spent the past three seasons as an assistant coach at Stanford University before being hired by Coastal Carolina. As a player at W&M, Sellers earned multiple all-conference honors and was an all-region selection as a senior. During her final year at the College, she established a single-season school record for goals (66) and led the Colonial Athletic Association in goals per game (3.47) and game-winning goals (5). The Kennebunk, Maine native's goals per game average ranked 13th in the country that season.
Harrington joins UConn's staff after serving as an assistant at Dickinson College. At W&M, Harrington helped lead the Tribe to a pair of CAA Tournament berths and earned the team's Academic Achievement Award as well as the 2007 "Work Horse" Award, voted on by all teammates to recognize the individual who, leading by example, pushes herself and thus her team to higher achievements.
