Christine Paradis
Head Coach Christine Paradis

Carol Knerr
Asst. Coach Carol Knerr
    Entering her eighth season, head coach Christine Paradis has molded the Amherst women's lacrosse program into one of the most successful in the nation, guiding the team to five consecutive postseason appearances from 1995 to 99, including ECAC Championships in 1997 and 1998, and a pair of trips to the NCAA Division III Championship Game in 1999 and 2001. She was a standout field hockey and lacrosse player at William & Mary before graduating in 1984, and was later chosen to represent the United States on both the U.S. National and World Cup Lacrosse Teams. Paradis also gained valuable experience as an assistant coach at Springfield College and Yale University prior to taking over at Amherst, and has coached the field hockey team to six consecutive postseason appearances, including an NCAA Regional bid in 2000.

Carol Knerr began her tenure as Christine Paradis' top women's lacrosse assistant in style, helping lead the Jeffs to the 2001 NCAA Championship game in her first season on the sidelines. She draws from the experience gained as a two-sport assistant coach at Ivy League power Dartmouth College, where she helped lead the Big Green to an ECAC Field Hockey Championship - and an Ivy League title and subsequent trip to the NCAA Quarterfinals in women's lacrosse - in 1999. The Wyndmoor, PA native was a standout women's lacrosse and field hockey player at the University of Richmond where she was a four-year starter and captained both sports before graduating in 1998 with a degree in Leadership Studies and a minor in Sports Science. In the fall, Knerr serves (along with Paradis) as co-head coach of the Amherst field hockey team.
