GW Head Women's Lacrosse Coach Tara Hannaford to Leave Program
Athletics and Recreation to Immediately Commence Search for New Head Coach
WASHINGTON – The George Washington University Department of Athletics and Recreation announced today that Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach Tara Hannaford is leaving the university.
"We would like to thank Tara for her seven years of service to GW,” said GW Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero. “We wish her all the best on her future endeavors."
As the third Head Coach in the history of the program, Hannaford amassed a record of 47-69 in seven years at the helm, including three seasons in which the team qualified for the A-10 Championship.
"I would like to thank Patrick Nero and the athletic department for a tremendous experience at GW,” said Hannaford. “I've loved coaching the student-athletes and being part of a thriving program. At this time it is important to me to return home and be closer to my family. I'm excited to watch the program continue to grow and be at the top of the A-10."
A national search for GW's next women's lacrosse head coach will begin immediately.
