Katie McConnell

Katie McConnell is in her first year as the head coach of the Manhattan College Women's Lacrosse program.

McConnell joins the Jaspers after spending last season at Coastal Carolina University, where she helped the Chants to an 11-7 record, including a 5-3 mark during Big South play. She made an immediate impact on the defense in her lone season in Conway, as Coastal Carolina lowered their goals allowed per game mark to 8.50, down from 9.82 the year prior.

A Garden State native, McConnell began her coaching career at Lock Haven in 2013 and spent three seasons with her alma mater. During that time, the Lady Eagles accrued a dominating 54-7 (.885) overall record while making back-to-back appearances in the Division II National Championship game and winning the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Title in 2014 and 2015.

McConnell, who was instrumental in the development of 11 All-Americans during her time in Pennsylvania, helped Lock Haven post arguably the most impressive season in school history in 2015. In a landmark campaign, the Lady Eagles went undefeated in the regular season for the first time since 1973 en route to finishing with a 20-1 record and a second-straight runner-up finish in the NCAA Division II Lacrosse Championships.

In 2014, McConnell was named the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division II Assistant Coach of the Year as the Lock Haven defense allowed just 129 goals in 22 games (5.78 GAA) in advancing to the NCAA Championship Game while finishing with a 19-3 mark. She began her first coaching stint in 2013, with the Lady Eagles posting a 15-3 record and a final national ranking of No. 6.

A standout on the field, McConnell was a four-year starter on defense for Lock Haven while helping lead the Lady Eagles to three straight trips to the NCAA Tournament, highlighted by an appearance in the 2009 National Championship game, three PSAC titles and was named as a 2011 North South Senior All-Star.

McConnell graduated from Lock Haven in 2012 with a degree in sports administration.

Emily Considine

Emily Considine joined the Manhattan women’s lacrosse staff in October 2016. A 2015 Hofstra graduate with a degree in psychology and community health, she previously coached the LI Top Guns club team.

Considine started her collegiate career at Syracuse, and she was a member of the Orange team that reached the 2012 NCAA National Championship Game. She then transferred to Hofstra and was named to the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) All-Rookie Team in 2013. The Pride reached at least the semifinals of the CAA Tournament during each of her two seasons with the program.

In addition, she was heavily involved in community outreach programs while at Hofstra. Considine worked with the HEADStrong Foundation, which raises awareness and funds for blood cancer research, as well as providing support to those affected. Hofstra was also involved with the Friends of Jaclyn Program and “adopted” a pediatric brain cancer patient.

Prior to her arrival at Manhattan, Considine worked with the LI Top Guns, one of the premier club teams on Long Island. She was responsible for all aspects of training and coaching the Elite U16 girls team, and she helped educate new players and coaches to promote the game. Considine also provided support to players and parents about the recruiting process and the overall experience of playing lacrosse at an elite level
