LaGrange athletic director Jennifer Claybrook announces the hiring of Nicolette Dungee as the new head lacrosse coach.
“I’m ecstatic to take over this growing program and would like to thank Athletic Director Jennifer Claybrook, and all of the staff and faculty members I had the chance to meet when I visited,” Dungee said. “I am excited and ready to build a firm platform and develop this program into something great.
“With the amount of support and guidance LaGrange has for athletics, I know that the lacrosse program will continue to flourish in the USA South conference.”
Nicolette has coached and volunteered at the NCAA Division II and high school levels for the past two years. She coached at Norfolk Collegiate School (Va.) last season, where the Oaks played in the TCIS conference and reached the state playoffs.
She is a graduate of Tennessee Wesleyan, with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. Nicolette was a four-year starter in goal for the Bulldogs. She finished her career holding school records for saves, goals against percentage and save percentage. Nicolette was four-time NWLL Appalachian Athletic All-Conference selection and named to the conference’s All-Tournament team three times. She served as a team captain her senior year.
