Rebecca Lampson

Rebecca Lampson was announced as the new head women's lacrosse coach and assistant field hockey coach at Elmira College on June 21, 2018.


Lampson recently completed her second season with the Mules, members of the ultra-competitive New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC), who went a combined 24-11 during her tenure. In 2017, Colby posted an impressive 15-4 overall record with an 8-2 mark against NESCAC competition. Lampson's Mules won 13 consecutive games en route to capturing the NESCAC Championship, the third in program history, earning a berth into the NCAA Tournament and peaking at No. 3 in the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III Coaches Poll. Colby advanced to the NESCAC Tournament once again in 2018 and finished the year ranked No. 21 in the country, according to the IWLCA.


During her two seasons in Waterville, Maine, Lampson helped tutor seven All-Conference, 12 All-Region, and three All-America honorees, as well as the 2017 NESCAC Defensive Player of the Year and 19 NESCAC Spring All-Academic Team award winners. She also had the opportunity to grow professionally under the mentorship of Colby's head coach, Karen Henning, a three-time regional and two-time national Coach of the Year.


Prior to joining the Mules, Lampson served as an assistant women's lacrosse coach at William Smith College for two seasons (2014-15) and at Morrisville State College in 2016. At both institutions, she coached a conference Defensive Player of the Year, as William Smith All-American Rachel Hughes was the recipient of the prize from the Liberty League in 2014 and Morrisville's Jordan Anderson was honored by the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) in 2016. Lampson's time with the Mustangs also included two seasons as an assistant field hockey coach, during which she saw eight players collect All-Conference recognition, in addition to NEAC Offensive Player and Rookie of the Year awards in 2016.


As a student-athlete, Lampson penned her named throughout the women's lacrosse record books at Rochester Institute of Technology. A standout midfielder and two-year team captain, the Penn Yan, New York, native led the Tigers to four consecutive conference tournaments, three of which came as a member of the Empire 8 Conference from 2009-11.


She had her best collegiate season as a senior in the spring of 2012, when she recorded a career-high 86 points (62g-24a). As a result, she was crowned RIT's Female Senior Athlete of the Year, as well as an All-Liberty League and IWLCA All-Region Second Teamer. Lampson graduated second all-time in RIT history in points and currently ranks fourth with 196 points (132g-64a). The point and goal totals from her senior campaign are fourth-most in RIT single-season history, and she also ranks among the Tigers' leaders in assists and draw controls.


A former IWLCA Academic Honor Roll selection and Presidential Scholarship recipient at RIT, Lampson graduated cum laude in 2012 with a bachelor's in New Media Marketing and a concentration in Environmental Studies. In December of 2017, she completed her master's in Sports Management from SUNY Cortland.
