EASTON, Pa.- Lafayette women's lacrosse head coach Alison Fisher has filled her assistant coaching vacancy with former University of Delaware attacker Corrine Drost.
"We are thrilled to welcome Corrine to our staff," Fisher said. "She gained valuable experience last year at the University of Delaware and she has an undeniable passion for the sport of lacrosse and the profession of coaching. She brings our program boundless energy and an excitement that is contagious. Her commitment to Lafayette Lacrosse will no doubt be one of the driving forces which helps us to build on the success of last season."
Drost, a Parkton, Md. native, joins the Leopards after spending the 2011 season as the University of Delaware women's lacrosse volunteer assistant. She joined the Delaware coaching staff after playing four years with the Blue Hens, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Services.
As a player, Drost was a three-year starter for Delaware from 2009-2011, earning Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Player of the Week honors in March of 2011. She scored a career-high 30 goals during her senior season in 2011, and tallied at least one point in her final 19 games.
In June 2012, Drost was the director of the Gamebreaker Camp in Lewes, Del., and taught fundamental lacrosse skills to girls ages 14-17 as a camp counselor with the University of Delaware in 2008, 2011 and 2012. From 2009-2011, she worked as a club lacrosse coach in Baltimore, Md. for sixth and eighth grade girls.
Drost joins assistant coach Kristin Ruminski and Fisher, who is entering her fifth season.
