coaching staff after a successful playing career at
Plymouth State in Plymouth, N.H. and coaching experience
at Springfield College and American International College
in Springfield, Mass.
The women’s field
hockey team will have a new coach, Marushka Eddy.
Eddy is a graduate of Plymouth State where she played
for the Panthers field hockey and women's lacrosse teams.

and recorded 20 points, 15 of which she scored during
her senior year on six goals and three assists. Following
her college playing career, she was an assistant coach

As a head coach, Eddy looks to build a Laker program
with strong values.
"We will make a commitment to teamwork, patience,
and dedication. Everything is going to take time,"
Eddy said. "Everyone has to do their share of the
work. With all of the work that people are going to
put in we will be successful on and off of the field.
We are starting with a clean slate and that allows us
to build a program with those ideals."

to do some recruiting of players, and in having the
opportunity to meet with some other coaches, I have
an idea of what is needed to be successful," Eddy
Eddy, a native of Nantucket, Mass., graduated from Plymouth
State in 2004 with an undergraduate degree in physical
education and will earn her master's degree in physical
education from Springfield College later this year.
