Kristin Seymour

Kristin Seymour returns for her seventh season as an assistant coach with the Rutgers-Camden lacrosse program in 2020.

She also served as an assistant coach with the Rutgers University lacrosse team in New Brunswick from 2004-2007.

As Kristin Checksfield, she was a member of the Div. I Rutgers University lacrosse team from 1999-2003, and is one of the program’s most-decorated players of all time. She was a three-time All-Big East selection from 2001-2003, a three-time Defensive Player of the Week and was named the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2002. She also was named an Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Regional All-American in 2002. She also was a two-time Big East Academic All-Star (2001-02 and 2002-03 scholastic years).

Among Rutgers University awards, she captured a Coaches Award in 2001, was the team’s co-MVP in 2002 and was the first winner of the Scarlet Knights’ Defensive Player of the Year honor in 2003. Her name is found throughout the program’s record book at Rutgers-New Brunswick and she still is the school’s all-time leader in caused turnovers with 109. She still shares the single-game mark for caused turnovers (seven against Hofstra University on March 15, 2003) and she ranks on the single-season list for caused turnovers twice, including the second-highest total (41 in 2002). She also is tied for fourth on that list with 34 caused turnovers in 2003.
