Liz Beville

Interim Director of Athletics Tim Fenton announced on August 2019 the hiring of Liz Beville as the 6th head women's lacrosse coach in program history.

"We are excited to have Liz Beville join our outstanding coaching staff," said Fenton. "From her background and experiences, Coach Beville will prove to be a strong fit and asset to our women's lacrosse program, our department and our College as we continue to deepen the advancement of our Inside the L culture. Every step Liz has taken through the college coaching ranks and her passion for teaching the sport of women's lacrosse will be invaluable as we continue to build upon and advance our women's lacrosse program's culture of excellence with a continued focus on the growth and development of our student-athletes so they are prepared to go forth and have positive impacts on their communities."

"I would like to thank Tim Fenton, the search committee, and the College for giving me the amazing opportunity to lead the Le Moyne Women's Lacrosse team," said Beville. "I feel extremely fortunate to be given the chance to lead a national championship-caliber program and look forward to building on the solid foundation and culture that has been established."

A native of Jamesville, Beville comes to Le Moyne after serving the 2019 season as the interim head coach at Colgate University. She was hired as an assistant coach on August 10, 2018 and was named the interim head coach on January 25, 2019. Beville guided the Raiders to an 8-10 record, including a mark of 5-4 in Patriot League action. The Raiders earned the fifth seed in the Patriot League Tournament and went on to upset Boston University in the first round for the program's first Patriot League tournament victory since 2011 and their first berth into the semifinals since 2015. Beville mentored four student-athletes to Patriot League All-Conference honors, while two earned Patriot League All-Tournament Team recognition. Additionally, 22 members of the team earned Patriot League Academic Honor Roll accolades and one was selected to the Academic All-Patriot League Team.

Beville arrived at Colgate after spending the 2017-18 season as an assistant coach at Division II Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado. The Mavericks went 12-4 on the season, including a 7-2 mark in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC), and advanced to the RMAC Championship semifinals. The four losses came to the two teams who would go on to meet in the NCAA Midwest Regional championship game, Regis University and Lindenwood University.
