From Press Release
Trinity College has hired Betsy Sachs (Germantown Friends), a 2014 graduate of Bowdoin College, as an assistant coach for women’s lacrosse and field hockey.
A two-time All-American and 2014 First Team All-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) honoree, Sachs completed her bachelor’s degree in sociology and government and legal studies in May.
Sachs posted 40 goals in 2014 and scored in her career. Bowdoin finished the season with an 8-7 record, reaching the NESCAC Quarterfinals and a #16 ranking in the IWLCA’s final regular season Division III poll.
Through her tenure with Bowdoin, Sachs spearheaded a team effort that raised over 2,600 dollars for the nonprofit Lacrosse the Nations. In the spring of 2014, she was the recipient of Bowdoin’s Ellen Tiemer Women’s Lacrosse Trophy, which is awarded annually by vote of the team and coaching staff to the senior or junior woman who is judged to have brought the most credit to Bowdoin and to herself. While an undergraduate student, Sachs worked for Bowdoin as a sports information assistant, alumni relations student ambassador and a lifeguard.
Sachs graduated from Germantown Friends School in 2010 when she was named US Lacrosse Honorable Mention All-American. She helped GFS win three Friends Schools League championships and became the school’s all-time leading scorer in 2010, breaking a 26-year-old record. She was named Academic All-American in 2009 and 2010 and All-League in 2008, 2009 and 2010 when she was a co-captain. She also played ice hockey for 11 years and reached the National Championship Tournament in 2008 and 2009.
