Ohio Names Kate Brew as New Lacrosse Coach

Contact: Jim Stephan


Ohio named Kate Brew as its lacrosse coach Friday.

ATHENS, Ohio - Kate Brew, an assistant coach at Vanderbilt, has been named head coach of the Ohio Lacrosse program, Director of Athletics Thomas Boeh announced today. She replaces Anne Moelk, who resigned last month to pursue other interests.

"We are excited to have a coach of Kate's caliber joining our staff," said associate athletics director Amy Dean, who has administrative oversight for the sport. "We believe her energy, enthusiasm and competitiveness will further the growth of our lacrosse program toward the national level."

Brew joined the Commodore coaching staff prior to the 1999 season as the second assistant and goalkeeping coach. She was promoted to first assistant in 2000, but continued to work closely with the team's goalkeepers.

"I am excited to get to Ohio and help the program grow," said Brew. "I think it will be a huge challenge, but my experiences at this level have me well-prepared. I am thrilled at the solid foundation that has been established and with the level of talent returning for next season."

While at Vanderbilt, Brew demonstrated a history of success in her role as an assistant coach. This past season, she helped a goalkeeper tandem with no previous experience lead the Commodores to their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. In 1999, she molded walk-on Emily Lough into a Top 20 goalkeeper in the national statistical rankings.

Brew came to Vanderbilt after completing her playing career at James Madison. She spent three seasons in goal for the Dukes after starting her career at Massachusetts. She earned a degree in art with a concentration in interior design from JMU in 1998. Brew's lacrosse career began at Annapolis High School in Annapolis, Md., where she graduated in 1994.
