Agnes Scott Lacrosse Coach Williams Resigns
(Decatur, GA) - Agnes Scott College head Lacrosse Coach Nicolle Williams announced that she will resign effective immediately in order to focus her full attention on her company Step Out Sports and the Thunderbird Lacrosse Club.
Coach Williams joined Agnes Scott College in 2008 and drafted the college's first lacrosse team which began play that year as a club sport. During the 2009-2010 inaugural season, Williams and the lacrosse team made Scottie history by winning the opening game, 14-1, against LaGrange College. The Scotties also ended their inaugural season with a winning home game record of 3-2 and the USA South Sportsmanship award.
In the 2010-2011 season, the Scotties finished sixth in the USA South Athletic Conference ending the season with a home field win over LaGrange College. This season, the team finished seventh in the regular season.
While in Decatur, Williams spent five years as the head coach for two local lacrosse clubs, Dixie Chix Lacrosse Academy and Hotlanta Lacrosse Company. She has been a member of the Georgia Lacrosse Umpire Board and served as a lacrosse official. She is currently the vice president of the Women's Division of the Georgia Lacrosse Foundation Regional Chapter of US Lacrosse. Prior to her arrival in Georgia, Williams was the varsity lacrosse coach at The Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Conn. There she amassed a 67-10-2 record, including a perfect 17-0 season in 1996, when her team won the New England Championship.
"Coach Williams has been a major resource for the lacrosse program at Agnes Scott and her contributions will be greatly missed," Agnes Scott Athletic Director Joeleen Akin said. "She was a significant piece of the puzzle to get lacrosse started and has greatly impacted the future of the sport at Agnes Scott."
