Hillary Fratzke

Hillary Fratzke enters her sixth season as head coach at William & Mary, as she looks to continue helping the Tribe lacrosse program earn a place among the upper echelon of the Colonial Athletic Association.


A number of Tribe standouts have benefited from Fratzke’s tutelage during her first five seasons, as 14 W&M players have combined to garner 18 all-conference honors. Sophie Kopec and Anne Milwicz continued to add to that legacy last season with all-league distinction.


Fratzke has also helped W&M rank among the league’s best in multiple statistical categories during her tenure, as the Tribe was among the CAA’s top four in ground balls and caused turnovers during each of the past five seasons. Additionally, W&M has led the league in ground balls per game during three of the last four seasons, while it led the CAA in caused turnovers in 2016 after ranking first in the conference in draw controls in 2015.


Some of W&M’s impressive numbers also rank among the top-10 single-season totals in school history, including draw controls (212 in 2017; 202 in 2015; 199 in 2014), caused turnovers (190 in 2017; 106 in 2018; 155 in 2016) and saves (158 in 2018). The impressive caused turnovers total in 2017 ranks fourth in school history.


Highlighting the individual accomplishments on the field were those by All-CAA standouts Abby Junior and Ellen Shaffrey, two of the most accomplished players in school history. Junior, a two-time all-league performer, set the single-season school record for caused turnovers (46) as a senior and finished her career ranked third all-time (126). Shaffrey posted the top two single-season draw controls totals in school history in 2014 and 2015 and finished her career as the program’s all-time record holder in the statistical category.


In addition to the success on the field, W&M has also excelled in the classroom during Fratzke’s tenure. In addition to earning Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaching Association (IWLCA) Academic Honor Squad recognition during each of her five seasons for posting a team cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better, Tribe student-athletes have combined to garner 35 IWLCA Academic Honor Roll selections.


In 2015, Ellen Shaffrey exemplified the academic success by earning a long list of impressive honors, including: IWLCA Division I Scholar-Athlete of the Year; CAA Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year; CAA Women’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year; Academic All-America At-Large Third Team; and Academic All-District 3 At-Large First Team.


Fratzke came to W&M after serving as an assistant coach at Northwestern for the previous three seasons. During her time with the Wildcats, she helped the program claim back-to-back NCAA national titles in 2011 and 2012, as well as a national semifinal appearance in 2013. NU posted a 61-7 overall record during the impressive three-year stretch and earned American Lacrosse Conference championships in 2011 and 2013.


In addition to helping the Wildcats achieve tremendous success as a team, a number of individuals thrived under Fratzke’s tutelage as she mentored a pair of Lacrosse Honda Sports Award winners (Shannon Smith, Taylor Thornton) and 12 IWLCA All-Americans.


While coaching at NU, Fratzke had a lead role in coordinating all aspects of the Wildcats program, including training sessions, film study, recruiting, program operations and marketing. She also coached extensively in Northwestern’s national youth camps and clinics and served as a liaison with Northwestern Lacrosse's booster club.


Fratzke joined Northwestern’s staff after an exceptional playing career at Towson in which she earned IWLCA All-America honors three times and ranked fourth in NCAA women’s lacrosse history in draw controls (327). Additionally, Fratzke, a four-time All-Colonial Athletic Association selection, was a two-time Tewaaraton Trophy nominee and garnered CAA Player of the Year honors in 2008 and 2010.


A native of Centreville, Md., Fratzke played in 72 games for Towson with 70 starts. She tallied 199 goals and 63 assists during her career, both of which rank third all-time in program history, while her 262 points is second in the Tiger record book. Fratzke also sits atop the Towson career leaders in ground balls (193), draw controls (327) and caused turnovers (144).


Fratzke helped lead Towson to back-to-back CAA titles in 2008 and 2009, as the Tigers qualified for the NCAA tournament three consecutive seasons from 2008-10. She was honored in 2010 by being named to the CAA’s 25th Anniversary Team.


Fratzke recorded a point in 70 consecutive games while notching a goal in 64-straight contests, the second-longest streak in NCAA history. As a junior, she netted a career-best 62 goals and 24 assists en route to being named a first-team IWLCA All-American, the CAA Player of the Year and a Tewaaraton Trophy nominee.


A CAA Scholar-Athlete and the 2010 Towson Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Fratzke is pursuing a master’s degree in biology from Towson after attaining her bachelor's degree in the same field.


Fratzke has continued her playing career as a member of the Long Island Sound of the United Women’s Lacrosse League and helped the franchise claim back-to-back titles in 2016 and 2017. Additionally, she served as an assistant with the team in 2018.

Kelley McPeake

Kelley McPeake enters her second season as a full-time assistant on the Tribe’s staff after serving as a volunteer in 2016.


While McPeake is instrumental with both defensive and offensive strategy, her primary responsibilities include recruiting, practice planning, leadership development of the players, team travel and business office liaison.


McPeake made a tremendous impact during her initial season on the staff, as Sophie Kopec and Anne Milwicz garnered CAA All-Rookie Team honors. Additionally, W&M ranked among the league’s top four in ground balls and caused turnovers, while its 160 caused turnovers ranks tied for seventh in school history.


Prior to joining W&M’s staff, McPeake compiled an impressive résumé that included a pair of head coaching positions at Fort Lewis College and San Diego State University. She played a pivotal role at both schools in helping lead and cultivate the growth of the women’s lacrosse programs.


As head coach at Fort Lewis from 2008-10, McPeake initiated the school’s lacrosse team and oversaw all aspects of the program. During her two-year stint, she was instrumental in building a strong foundation upon which the program was able to grow.


Before taking over at Fort Lewis, McPeake served as the head coach at San Diego State for four years (2004-08). Under her leadership, the Aztecs achieved tremendous success that was highlighted by a conference title and a top-seven ranking in the team’s division. In addition to consistently earning lofty national rankings, she helped many of her players garner all-league distinction and SDSU Academic honors. During her time leading the Aztecs, McPeake also served as the WWLL League Commissioner and was named the SDSU Club Sports Coach of the Year.


McPeake’s extensive coaching résumé also includes serving as the head coach of Klahowya High School (2011-13) and Pacific Falcons Lacrosse Club (2010-11). Additionally, she worked as an assistant at Trinity High School (2014-16), Scripps Ranch High School (2011) and LaxDawgs Lacrosse Club (2004-08, 2010).


As a club coach, she helped 15 players earn roster spots with Division I programs, while 10 others went on to play at the Division II and III levels.


McPeake played collegiately at the University of California, Berkeley and graduated with degree in sociology in 2004.


She currently lives in Williamsburg with her husband, James McPeake, and three daughters, Peri, Lucy and Beverly.

Corrine Drost

Corrine Drost enters her first season as an assistant coach at William & Mary after joining the staff in July.


While Drost is instrumental in many aspects of the program, her primary responsibilities include serving as the defensive coordinator, goalie coach, recruiting coordinator and equipment coordinator. Additionally, she oversees player development in all areas of the field and student-athlete wellbeing.


“Hiring Corrine is a great step for our program in our drive towards excellence,” Fratzke said at the time of her hiring. “Not only does she have extensive experience as a DI assistant coach, she has a strong moral compass and she has an incredible work ethic. I have gotten to know Corrine over the years and, while I enjoy her as a person, I have also seen her strengths as a coach in real time. Not only is she knowledgeable in the game of lacrosse, Corrine values leadership from herself and those around her. She is demanding but enthusiastic and incredibly passionate about sharing all of these things with others. I have no doubt that she will thrive within our staff, team and department!”


Drost joined the Tribe staff after serving as an assistant at Drexel last season where she helped the Dragons improve their conference ranking in multiple statistical categories, including goals, assists and draw controls. Additionally, she developed and mentored two all-conference standouts and the CAA Rookie of the Year.


“Hillary has been a mentor to me from afar over the last couple of years, and I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to work side by side with her and Kelley to build success at William & Mary,” Drost said. “It is clear that there is great energy within the department and an exciting time to be at William & Mary. Samantha Huge was my administrator as a student athlete at Delaware. She hired two of my coaches who have become some of the most influential people in my life. They have given me experiences that have shaped who I am. I hope to be able to give those same experiences to the student-athletes at William & Mary.”


Prior to joining Drexel’s staff last season, Drost spent three seasons at her alma mater, the University of Delaware, where she helped mentor the Blue Hens’ offense. In addition to totaling 537 points during her three seasons, UD piled up 22 victories during her tenure.


Highlighting her time at UD was the 2015 season when the Blue Hens ranked 19th nationally in scoring margin (3.89), which represented the program’s best figure since 1998, and advanced to the CAA Championships. The following year, she helped Delaware rank No. 18 in the country with a margin of 3.24 goals per game.


Drost starred on the field at Delaware from 2008-11 and finished her career with 70 goals, highlighted by 30 as a senior. She helped Delaware reach the CAA Championships twice, including a title game appearance in 2009.


Following her playing career, Drost served one season as a volunteer assistant at Delaware in 2012 before joining the coaching staff at Lafayette for two seasons. Her Lafayette teams included the 2013 squad, which stands as one of the best in recent program history and advanced to the Patriot League Tournament.
