Dawn Easley

Dawn Easley enters her sixth season as head women's lacrosse coach at Campbell.

Easley has guided the Camels to their most successful three-year stretch in the program's six year history, totaling 29 wins from 2016-18. Under Easley, CU has reached at least the semifinals of the Big South Championship in each of the last three years, winning a game in the tournament each season.

Over her five years at the helm in Buies Creek, 22 Camels have been named All-Big South, including nine first team honorees, one conference player of the year and three-straight Big South Scholar-Athletes of the Year (2016-18).

Campbell notched nine wins in 2018 while navigating its most rigorous schedule to date, facing three NCAA Tournament teams (four games) and taking on nationally ranked opponents four times. Campbell, meanwhile, set single-season school records for goals (245) and draw controls (283).

Six Camels were honored in the Big South's postseason awards for the second-straight season, with three first team performers (Melissa Placek, Sam Carey and Megan Reilly), one second team honoree (Kayla Reilly), plus an honorable mention (Amanda Chasin). Mackenzie Koeller was also named the league's scholar-athlete of the year for the second straight season.

In 2017, Easley led the Camels to the most successful season in program history. CU recorded its highest all-time winning percentage (.556) and won 10 games for the second-straight season.

Campbell posted a program-best 6-1 record in the Big South to finish second in the league, the best finish in program history. Along the way, the Camels reeled off a program-record five-straight victories to open conference play.
