Kim Wayne

Athletic Director Jim Murphy announced the hiring of Kim Wayne on July 23, 2008 as the next head coach for the Wildcat women's lacrosse program.

It was a double-digit win season in 2018, the first since 2014, as Wayne led Davidson to an 11-8 overall record, 6-2 on the road, and another solid 5-4 mark in A-10 play. She guided the Wildcats to the semifinals of the league championship for the second year in a row after downing VCU in the quarterfinals before falling to UMass to end the season. Twice the 'Cats registered four-game winning streaks during the season, the longest streak since a nine-game stretch during the 2014 campaign.

Five Wildcats were honored by the A-10 with postseason honors. Sarah Kopp and Rose Woolson were first team picks, while the freshmen duo of Olivia Carey and Natalie Junior earned spots on the all-rookie team. Kopp and Rachel Hianik were named to the A-10 All-Academic Team, which was the second year in a row for Kopp.

Wayne saw senior Christine Molinari and Woolson left their names etched throughout the record books. Molinari finished her career fourth all-time in assists and 10th in career points, while Woolson was one of the program's all-time great goalies as she ranked fourth in minutes, and third in saves (461) and goals against average (10.12). Her 162 groundballs is the most all-time.

In 2017, Wayne guided the Wildcats to an 8-10 record and a 5-4 league mark, while the program won its first-ever A-10 Tournament game with a huge 14-13 comeback victory against George Mason.

For the second year in a row, three Wildcats were honored by the A-10 with Nicole Pettiglio earning a spot on the all-second team at midfield, while Shayne Antolini earned a spot on the league's all-rookie team. Sarah Kopp was honored for her success on the field and in the classroom by being named to the all-academic team to become the first Wildcat to earn a spot on the team.
