NXTsports is excited to announce the hire of Casey Kellogg as NXT Lacrosse Club’s Director of Operations. Under her role, Kellogg will be responsible for management of all aspects of NXTlacrosse for NXT LC Boys, NXT LC Girls and NXTChicago.
Prior to joining NXT, Kellogg served as an assistant coach on NXT LC Girls Director Kate Henwood’s coaching staff at Division I UC-Davis, where she spent time coaching the Aggies’ goalies and midfielders.
“Casey’s unique background and experiences with not only lacrosse, but also administration, marketing and graphic design is going to help us continue to push the NXTlacrosse brand forward,” NXT LC Boys Director Marty Kupprion said. “She is an important piece to the puzzle as we launch girls lacrosse with Kate Henwood, and I’m looking forward to her support with our NXT Boys teams as well as our NXTChicago teams. Casey is going to help improve the experience of every stakeholder of NXTlacrosse.”
Kellogg played collegiately at Division I Hofstra University, where she earned a degree in marketing with a minor in fine arts. She was also named a team captain as a senior and was also tabbed a second-team All-Colonial Athletic Association choice in 2012. She made the Dean’s List and also collected CAA Commissioner’s Academic Awards throughout her career.
“We are thrilled to welcome Casey to the growing NXT family,” Henwood said. “Casey brings Division I coaching experience to the table, which helps round out our impressive NXT Girls LC staff. She offers expertise and enthusiasm that will enhance NXT’s traditions of professionalism, attention to detail and efficiency.”
Kellogg, a Downingtown West (Pa.) alumna, also served on Hofstra’s sports marketing department during her undergraduate tenure.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be joining the NXT team and becoming a part of such an innovative, passionate, top-notch company,” Kellogg said. “After spending my last two years on the West Coast, I’m eager to be back in Philadelphia and offer my experience with operational duties to help contribute to growth and development of the elite youth lacrosse programs at NXT.”
