Ashley Stevens enters her third year as head of the women's lacrosse team at King's College in 2018-19. Stevens comes into the 2019 season tied for fourth all-time in wins at King's College, while she's the only coach in program history to take her team to the MAC Freedom Tournament in every season she's been the head mentor.
Stevens made an immediate impact in her first year with the program as she led the team to the 2017 MAC Freedom Conference Tournament semi-finals and produced four All-Freedom Conference players. In 2018, the Monarchs posted another winning MAC Freedom season, earning a MAC Freedom Conference Tournament appearance, while placing a record six players on the All-MAC Freedom teams.
During her tenure, Stevens has produced Top 5 seasons for the Monarchs in goals, assists, points and draw controls. Furthermore, the Monarchs have chalked up an impressive 23 student-athletes on the MAC Academic Honor Roll. Two of her players were honored by the IWLCA Honor Roll, while the team earned Academic Honor Squad laurels in 2018.
Stevens arrived at King's after serving as the head coach of both the women's lacrosse and women's soccer programs at Green Mountain College in Vermont.
At Green Mountain, she took over a lacrosse program in July of 2014 that went 0-9 overall and 0-6 in the North Atlantic Conference. With little time to recruit for the 2015 season, Stevens managed to improve the team to a 2-11 mark in her first season at the helm. In 2016, the team continued to improve, posting a 5-9 overall mark while going 4-4 in the NAC and registering their first conference victory since the 2011 campaign.
Green Mountain qualified for the NAC Tournament for the first time in five seasons where the team dropped a 12-11 decision to Husson University. The Eagles finished in fifth-place in the nine-team league.
While at Green Mountain, she produced three players who earned All-North Atlantic Conference honors.
Prior to coaching at Green Mountain, Stevens was at Randolph College in Lynchburg, Virginia where she spent the 2013-14 years as an assistant coach for both the women's lacrosse and women's soccer programs.
Stevens was a four-year dual sport student-athlete in soccer and lacrosse at Randolph where she competed as a defender in the highly-respected Old Dominion Athletic Conference. She earned All-ODAC Third Team honors for lacrosse in 2012 and 2013 and was named the Randolph College "Defensive Player of the Year" for both lacrosse and soccer as a senior in 2013. She received her Bachelor's degree from Randolph in Sports and Exercise Studies in 2014.
She also served as head girl's lacrosse coach at the James River Day School for one season and led the 2014 squad to an undefeated record in regular season play and the Southwest Virginia regional championships. In addition, she coached girls' lacrosse at JAB a premier club for lacrosse in Lynchburg, Virginia.
