Position:
Assistant Coach

Alma Mater:
Duke

Wright returns for her second season as an assistant coach on Macmillan's staff. Her primary responsibilities at OU include academic advisement, off-season conditioning, practice planning, defensive strategies, film breakdown, game day management, and the guest coach program.

A standout at Duke from 1999-2002, Wright started 60-consecutive contests for the Blue Devils as a defender. As a captain during her senior season, Wright earned All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors and was named an All-South Region selection. Wright's playing career was highlighted by competing for the 2000 U.S. Under-19 National Team and being selected as a 2000 U.S. Under-21 National Team Alternate. During this time period she coached at various field hockey camps, including Duke and Stanford.

Since her 2003 graduation from Duke as an environmental science and policy major, Wright has stayed close to her chosen sport. She was a varsity high school coach in 2005 at Walter Johnson in Bethesda, Md., and served as the head coach for two years of under-16 and under-19 club teams in the Washington D.C. area. In terms of international experience, she has helped lead and coached field hockey tours to Buenos Aires, Argentina for both college and high school players.

Upon graduation, Wright worked at Glacier National Park in Montana in 2003 and then spent a year in Taiwan as an international convention organizer. The year prior to Ohio University she worked for the U.S. Forest Stewardship Council in Washington, D.C.

Wright has continued her playing career by participating in tournaments with the Washington Shredders club team. Wright was part of four-consecutive state championships at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Maryland, the same program as current Bobcat sophomore Nina Bruno.
