CSU-Pueblo’s new women’s lacrosse program now has its first leader as Monica Potter will steer the Pack’s startup program into its first season of competition in 2014-15.
Potter, most recently the assistant coach at Fort Lewis College, has served as a head coach at three universities prior to coming to CSU-Pueblo.

Potter’s collegiate coaching career began at Lindenwood (Mo.) University, an associate member of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in women’s lacrosse.  During one season at Lindenwood, she directed Lindenwood to the Central Plains Division title, a national tournament berth and a number-23 ranking in the Women’s Division Intercollegiate Associates of U.S. Lacrosse.  She also turned a program with a losing record into one that had an undefeated regular season.  Additionally, Potter served as Lindenwood’s field hockey coach.

She then moved on to the head coaching position at Adrian College, an NCAA Division III institution in Adrian, Mich.  She helped launch the program into existence, recruiting players from eight stats to fill the roster as, much like CSU-Pueblo, it awaited a newly constructed complex for its program.

From 2008-09, Potter coached at Fontbonne University, an NCAA Division III institution in St. Louis, Mo.  In returning to her native St. Louis, she directed the Griffons for two seasons, coaching above .500 for both seasons.  In addition to her duties as women’s lacrosse coach, she also directed Fontbonne’s field hockey program as well as served as Assistant Athletic Director, specializing in NCAA compliance.

At CSU-Pueblo, Potter will get the opportunity to be a full-time women’s lacrosse coach for the first time in her career, and similar to Adrian College, she will be able to build a program from the ground up and ready it to take the field in Spring 2015.
