Jess (Fugate) Good enters her sixth season at Kenyon after finishing 16-2 and playing in the NCAA Sweet-16!

2022 was a record year for Kenyon Women's Lacrosse. Coach Good guided the Ladies to earn the NCAC regular-season title and the NCAC conference title. She was named NCAC Coach of the Year and mentored the NCAC Attacker of the Year, NCAC Defender of the Year, NCAC Newcomer of the year, and IWLCA All-American Caroline O'Neil.

2020 & 2021 were limited seasons for the Ladies due to COVID.

Three seasons ago in 2019, the Ladies went 13-5 and qualified for the NCAC Tournament for the first time since 2013. Along the way, the Ladies won a program-record 12-straight games and started the conference schedule 6-0 for the first time in program history. Good coached Cassie Hudson-Heck to NCAC Offensive Player of the Year while seeing four others earn All-NCAC accolades.

In 2018, she guided the Ladies to an 11-5 overall mark. It was the most wins by a first-year coach in Kenyon women's lacrosse history. Good helped mentor All-NCAC First Team selections Cassie Hudson-Heck and Maggie Grabowksi and saw three more student-athletes make the all-conference team, as well.

Hired in July of 2017, she came to Kenyon via NCAA Division I Colgate University, where she served for one season as an assistant coach. She worked primarily as the assistant offensive coordinator and devoted most of her time to individual skill development, recruiting and scouting.

Prior to her work at Colgate, Good jumped into the coaching profession in 2013 and spent two years as a graduate assistant at NCAA Division II Edinboro University. Following that, she moved on to NCAA Division I University of Vermont. She spent one season there, working as an assistant with her focus on the attack, midfield and draw specialists.

Good played collegiately at Gannon University, where the Golden Knights went a combined 46-26-1 and made the playoffs in each of her four seasons of play. She started 71 games at Gannon and racked up career numbers that included 182 goals, 103 assists and 285 points. She was a three-time Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) all-region honoree and was named a 2012 IWLCA All-American.

She graduated from Gannon in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in sport management and marketing. While working at Edinboro, she earned a master's degree in communication studies.

Jess Good is married to Kenyon's Head Football Coach, Ian Good. The couple have a one year-old son, Finn and two doodles, Ellie and Rosie.
