Taghon Tapped for Lax Spot

Taghon Tapped for Lax Spot

WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University Head Women's Lacrosse Coach Lindsey Lutz announced Thursday that Maddie Taghon has been selected as her program's first-ever full-time assistant coach.

Taghon, who joined Lutz' staff as a part-time assistant in the fall of 2015, now takes on the full-time role after the position was created this past summer.

Taghon, a three-year player at Presbyterian (S.C.) College and team captain of the Blue Hose during her senior year, came to SU last fall after coaching lacrosse for one year at Ampleforth College in Ampleforth, England.

In this role, she coordinated games, practices and travel itineraries for varsity, junior varsity, U15, U14 and elementary school teams at Ampleforth.

In addition, she taught lacrosse-based physical education lessons in both the elementary school as well as served as a teaching assistant in both the primary and senior schools.

At PC, she played in 45 games with 37 starts as a defender. 

"I had a number of excellent candidates for the position," Lutz said. "Maddie stood out in this group. I am very happy to have her join the program in this new role."

As Lutz' assistant this past year, Taghon helped the Hornets to three wins in its final five games of the season with SU outscoring its three ODAC opponents 56-7 in the three victories. Lutz and Taghon also brought in a 16-woman recruiting class and are expected to have a 30-woman roster this fall.

Taghon also was the team's academic coordinator and in this role the squad posted a 3.24 average GPA and was honored by the IWLCA for their academic achievement. Twelve women off of the 2016 team were named Academic All-ODAC as well.
