ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio University field hockey head coach Neil Macmillan has announced the hiring of Amy Kee as a graduate assistant coach for the 2013 season.
Kee joins the Bobcat coaching staff after spending the past four years as a member of the Syracuse University field hockey team.
"We're very excited to have Amy join our staff," Macmillan said. "She brings a wealth of experience from her time at Syracuse and her high school career at Queenswood School in England. She's had a great development process and will bring a lot of energy and excitement to the sideline."
Kee competed for Syracuse from 2009-12 and helped lead the Orange to four NCAA Championship appearances and a berth in the 2012 NCAA Final Four. A three-time Longstreth/NFHCA Division I All-Mideast Region selection, Kee garnered second team All-America honors from Longstreth/NFHCA and womensfieldhockey.com as a freshman.
She was named the ECAC Division I Field Hockey Rookie of the Year in 2009 and garnered First Team All-BIG EAST accolades.
Prior to her career at Syracuse, Kee attended the prestigious Queenswood School in England. She was a member of the England U18 National Team as well as the Hertfordshire County U18 Team. Kee helped lead the national squad to the England U18-Four Nations Tournament finals and was a member of the 2007 team that won the European Championship.
Kee and the Bobcats kick off the 2013 field hockey season on Aug. 31 at Boston University (1 p.m.).
