Kathy Taylor

Colgate Vice President and Director of Athletics Dr. Nicki W. Moore has announced the selection of Kathy Taylor as the new women's lacrosse head coach.

Taylor joins the Raiders after most recently serving as the women's lacrosse head coach at Le Moyne, where she garnered a 97-12 overall record through five seasons and led the Dolphins to the 2018 Division II National Championship.

Taylor will be formally introduced at a press conference on Wednesday, June 26 at 11 a.m., in the Class of 1965 Arena. The press conference will be streamed live on the Patriot League Network.

"I am so very excited to welcome Coach Taylor to our fantastic Colgate coaching community," said Moore. "The more we got to know Coach Taylor, the more impressed we have become with her. Not only has she elevated programs and won championships at every step in her career; she has done so while mentoring student-athletes to become leaders on the field, in the classroom and in life. Coach Taylor has also consistently served her profession and advanced the game of lacrosse as President of the Coaches' Association, and as a three-time member of the US National Team Selection Committee. On top of all of her qualifications, she is a really good person whom we have enjoyed getting to know through our process."
