Springfield College Athletics Women's Lacrosse 2014 Team Guide : Page 2
K risten Mullady ‘00 enters her fifth season as the head women’s lacrosse coach at Springfield College. A former standout for Springfield’s women’s lacrosse team, Mullady was named an assistant professor of physical education and the Pride’s head coach in the summer of 2009. In the 2013 season, the Pride repeated as NEWMAC Champions, despite entering the tournament as the three seed. With four all-conference selections leading the way, Springfield advanced to its fifth trip to the NCAA’s before a 4-3 setback at Endicott ended their season. The 2012 campaign saw Mullady lead the Pride back to the NCAA Championship for the fourth time in program history. The Pride earned a berth by virtue of knocking off Babson, 10-6, in the NEWMAC Championship game. Springfield eventually bowed out to Buffalo State in the first round of the NCAA’s, concluding their year with an 11-8 record. In her second season on the sidelines for Springfield, Mullady guided the Pride to an 11-6 record, including its first 6-0 mark in conference regular season play since 2006. The Pride earned the regular season title before falling in its third-straight NEWMAC Tournament Championship game to Babson. Mullady was honored as the NEWMAC Coach of the Year, and six of her players were named all-conference, including the NEWMAC Player of the Year, Jackie Moscardelli. Mullady returned to her alma mater and led Springfield to a 10-8 record as it reached the NEWMAC Tournament Championship for the second year in a row. Under Mullady’s guidance, Springfield landed six players on the all-conference team. Mullady, who graduated from Springfield in 2000 with a degree in physical education, still holds SC’s all-time record for points in a season with 77, and ranks fifth all-time in career points with 162. She recently completed a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Walden University.
