Reese returns to Lock Haven after spending the last three seasons (2013-15) as head coach at nearby Lycoming College.
At Lycoming, Reese went 19-29 overall and led the Warriors to a 10-6 record last season (2015).
The 2015 season marked Lycoming’s first winning season since 2010 and Reese also led a pair of players to All-Conference honors, including the Middle Atlantic Conference’s leading scorer.

During her playing career at LHU, the Bald Eagles advanced to the NCAA Final Four twice (’05 & ’07) and played in PSAC Championship matches.
“I’m excited to announce Lindsay as our new coach and look forward to her leading the program into the future,” said LHU Director of Athletics Tom Gioglio. “Being an alumna of the program, she understands the history and tradition at LHU, and knows what it will take to continue our long standing success at the national level.”
