Lisa Vogeley enters her first season as the head women's lacrosse coach at Connecticut College.
Vogeley comes to the New London campus after quickly turning the Roger Williams women's lacrosse program into a conference powerhouse, appearing in the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) championship game in all four seasons as head coach of the Hawks. From 2014, the Hawks were 27-5 in the CCC under Vogeley. In 2016, Vogeley led the Hawks to their first CCC championship in program history (8-0) and the program's first appearance in the NCAA Division III Women's Lacrosse Tournament. This success led to Vogeley being named the CCC Coach of the Year. Since 2016, both CCC Offensive Player of the Year awards have been Roger Williams players and another was named the 2016 CCC Rookie of the Year.
Vogeley's success at Roger Williams was felt off the field as well. Of her four senior classes, she boasts a 100% graduation rate and has maintained a team GPA of 3.0 or above in each season. In addition, in all four seasons, Vogeley's teams have received IWLCA All-Academic Team Honors. In 2017 she was selected to serve on the IWLCA All-America Regional Committee.
Vogeley had an accomplished career as a Division I Women's Lacrosse player at Saint Mary's College of California. Despite redshirting in 2005 due to an ACL injury, Vogeley was a three-year team captain. A defender, she ranks fourth in school history in games started and sixth in games played.
She graduated in 2007 with a BA in Sports Management. Prior to her tenure at Roger Williams, Vogeley was the assistant women's lacrosse coach at Saint Mary's for three seasons from 2010-2013. She worked primarily with the defense and goalies and was a key reason for Saint Mary's defensive success. In 2009, she received her Masters' Degree from Saint Mary's in Sports Studies.
