William and Mary head coach Brooke Ireland has announced the hiring of Kelly McQuade (Central Bucks West) as an assistant coach.
A 2004 graduate of the College, McQuade played both lacrosse and field hockey for the Tribe. Additionally, she served as an assistant with both the lacrosse and field hockey teams from 2004-06.
Although McQuade will be instrumental in all aspects of the Tribe program, her primary responsibilities will include developing and implementing training sessions, orchestrating a faster and more dynamic team, recruiting, and scouting.
“One of William and Mary’s assets has come to join our staff, and I am excited to have the opportunity to bring Kelly back to the College,” Ireland said. “She truly represents the attitude and spirit this program is looking to achieve. She adds tremendous depth to our staff with her extensive coaching experience, knowledge of the game, and love for her alma mater.”
Prior to rejoining the Tribe staff, McQuade served as the head field hockey coach at VCU for five seasons. Highlighting her tenure leading the Rams was an outstanding 2010 season in which she was honored as the Colonial Athletic Association Coach of the Year. En route to earning the distinction, she guided VCU to a 13-6 record, marking the second-most wins in school history.
An outstanding two-sport athlete at W&M, McQuade started every game during her final three years in lacrosse. Additionally, she was a two-year starter in field hockey and garnered All-CAA accolades as a senior.
A native of Doylestown, Pa., McQuade earned a bachelor’s of science degree in kinesiology from the College.
McQuade is owner of Zing Fit, a personal training business located in Richmond.
