Denham Resigns Position as Lacrosse Head Coach
Regan Denham, the only head coach in women's lacrosse program history, announced her resignation from her position earlier today. A national search for the program's second head coach will begin immediately.
"We are deeply grateful for Regan and appreciate so much the job she did as the first lacrosse coach in program history," said Director of Athletics Jeff Barber. "She has definitely laid a solid foundation for the future direction of Lady Flames lacrosse. We will miss having her on our staff and wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors."
During her four seasons as head coach, Denham helped construct the program from the ground up after Liberty announced the addition of two new women's programs in 2008.
Denham was hired in 2009 and quickly started to make an impact. During her second season, Denham posted a six-win improvement from the program's inaugural season.
"I want to thank Jeff Barber for the opportunity to coach at Liberty," commented Denham. "I really enjoyed my time here with the program. Although it is difficult to leave, I am looking forward to spending more time with my family and raising my children."
This past year, Denham guided the Lady Flames during their first season of Big South Conference play. Liberty posted a 4-3 conference mark and advanced to the semifinals of the inaugural Big South Lacrosse Championship.
Six players earned all-conference honors under Denham's leadership, while Karis Walborn was name the program's first VaSID all-state player in 2011.
