Regan DenhamHead Coach
College: Messiah ('04)
Start Date: 05/14/2009
Shortly after Liberty's announcement to sponsor lacrosse beginning in 2010, Regan Denham was named as the head coach to usher in the new program. As Liberty's first head coach, Denham led the Lady Flames to their first win on March 6, 2010, as the team defeated Howard, 17-16, in overtime.
In 2011, Denham's team made a six-win improvement from its inaugural season and also chalked up a postseason victory, defeating Howard in the National Lacrosse Conference Tournament, 16-13.
A trio of Denham's student-athletes garnered postseason honors following the conclusion of the 2012 season. Junior Chloe McIntosh was named to the NLC's second team all-conference squad, All-Academic team, as well as the VaSID Academic All-State team. Additionally, Jen Moyer garnered a spot on the NLC's All-Academic team and Kacie Fogle was tabbed to the All-Tournament team following the conclusion of the NLC tournament.
"Not only does Regan bring great experience to our up-and-coming program, but she has also played and coached at other Christian institutions, and understands the mission of Liberty University," stated Director of Athletics Jeff Barber upon welcoming Denham to Liberty in 2009.
Prior to coming to Lynchburg, Denham served as head coach at Springfield College and Missouri Baptist, and acted as an assistant and an interim head coach at Averett and Drew University, respectively.
At Springfield College, Denham led her squad to a 12-6 record and a 5-1 mark in the New England Woman's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC). She also served as an assistant professor of physical education at the institution.
In her other head coaching stint, Denham led the Missouri Baptist Spartans, an NAIA institution, to a winning record in just its second year of lacrosse.
As an assistant coach at Averett, just down the road in Danville, Va., Denham helped the squad earn a berth into the USA South Conference Tournament after previously having not won a game in the first three years as a program.
While serving as the interim head coach at Drew University, Denham helped guide Drew to a 14-6 overall record, a trip to the NCAA Division III Tournament's "Sweet 16", and a top-20 ranking in the IWCLA poll.
As Denham enters her fourth season at the helm, the program will make the move from the NLC to compete in the Big South Conference, which will sponsor lacrosse for the first time in 2013.
Denham is married to Jesse Denham and the couple resides in the Lynchburg area with their son, Caelan.
