1999 Season Review: The 1999 Amherst lacrosse team brought the program to the next level of national prominence as they made a historic run at the NCAA Division III National Championship. The 1999 team finished the spring with its best performance in team history (14-3). The regular season started with excitement as the team traveled to Florida and got off to a 2-0 start with wins over Gettysburg and Drew. Returning home, they continued their success, posting an 11-2 record with losses only to NESCAC rivals Connecticut College and Middlebury. The last two weeks proved to be the biggest challenge as the team faced off against Trinity, Mount Holyoke and Williams. Amherst reached new heights with significant wins over Trinity (17-13) and Williams (12-11), assuring the team their second- ever NCAA post-season bid.
Earning a fifth seed in the 12-team field, Amherst faced off against Colorado College in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. After a slow start, the offensive-minded Amherst team came away with a scorching 21-13 win over the visiting Tigers. Amhersts next opponent was NESCAC rival Bowdoin (13-1), and once again the high-powered offense led by Kristin Osborn (six goals) was too much for their opponent to handle. Amherst defeated the Polar Bears, 15-9, and earned their first trip to the Division III NCAA Final Four. Their next opponent was undefeated perennial national powerhouse and defending national champion The College of New Jersey. Led by Amhersts strong defensive unit and anchored by Jessica Thaxton in goal, Amherst went on to win, 11-8, in perhaps the biggest upset in Division III lacrosse history. Unfortunately, Amherst came up one goal short in the National Championship game against NESCAC rival Middlebury (9-10).
2000 Season Preview: Although the 2000 team will sorely miss Corso, Permut, Carroll and Meade, the NCAA Final Four experience should prove to be invaluable for the 20 players who return. Five players return from one of Division IIIs most balanced offenses-second team All- American Kristin Osborn 01, regional All-American Alie Stechenberg 00 (captain), All- NESCAC player Sarah Scheessele 00, playmaker Rachel Bernstein 00 (captain) as well as regional All-American Katherine Poulin 00. Also returning on attack with solid experience are Anne Close 02, Cara Coscarelli 02, Meghan Hely 02, Heidi Kahrl 02 and Meg Martin 02. On defense, Kathleen Sanford 00 (captain), Alison Kitay 01, Carrie Foster 02 and goalkeeper Jessica Thaxton 01 all return from one of the most stingy defenses in the country (8.35 GAA). They will be joined by returning squad members Robin Ackerman 02, Caroline Bruce 02, Heather Govern 02, Mary Hoeffel 02, Jeita Phillips 02 and Charlotte Taylor 01. Moreover, a strong recruiting class will contribute to the depth and talent of the Amherst lacrosse program in the millenium season.
Coach: Chris Paradis (William & Mary)
Assistant Coaches: Carol Knerr (Richmond), Lynn Magovern (Colby)
Co-captains: Rachel Bernstein '00, Kathleen Sanford '00 & Alie
