Alex Kahoe

Kahoe was named the head coach of the Hawks on August 11, 2014.

A five-time National Champion, three time All-American, and two-time NCAA Goalkeeper of the Year, Alex Kahoe (Maryland '00) wrapped up her fourth season as head coach of the Saint Joseph's women's lacrosse program in Spring 2018.

Kahoe owns a four-year record of 37-35, with 32 of those wins coming in the last three seasons, and has coached 17 Atlantic 10 All-Conference selections, including the 2016 Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year, five Academic All-Conference selections, and a 2016 IWLCA All-Region Second Team honoree.

Kahoe has led the Hawks to three consecutive trips to the A-10 postseason over the last three seasons; she became the first coach in program history to lead SJU to back-to-back postseason appearances, from 2016-17, and is now the first to lead the program to three in a row.

In 2018, one of the most historic seasons in Saint Joseph's women's lacrosse history, Kahoe guided the Hawks to a 12-7 overall record as SJU broke the record for wins in a season for the second year in a row. Saint Joseph's finished the A-10 regular season with a 7-2 record for the third consecutive year to finish third in the league, and Kahoe went on to lead the Hawks to an A-10 quarterfinal win over George Mason as the Hawks reached the A-10 semifinals for the third year in a row. Under Kahoe's direction, the Hawks landed spots on the A-10 First Team (1), A-10 Second Team (2), and A-10 Rookie Team (2) in a season in which SJU broke program records in points (389), goals (262), assists (127), and shots (618), all improvements on records broken the previous season.

Kahoe's Hawks won eight A-10 games between the regular season and postseason, matching the most single-season league wins in program history. In the midst of those eight wins, Kahoe led the Hawks to seven consecutive victories from April 8 through May 3, marking the longest winning streak in program history.

Kahoe directly worked with graduate student goalkeeper Liz O'Sullivan, who broke SJU's single-season program record for goalkeeper wins (12), and saw junior attacker Rebecca Lane break the career record for assists (73).
