Brampton Named Associate Head Coach

Liberty Field Hockey Assistant Coach Tilly Brampton has recently been promoted to associate head coach. Brampton enters her sixth year with the Lady Flames in 2016, having assisted in guiding Liberty to two NCAA Tournament appearances.

Brampton serves as a key instructor for the team's offensive unit, focusing primarily on the forward line. She also provides administrative support, helping with recruiting, equipment management and video coordination. Under Brampton's tutelage, the Lady Flames have finished the season ranked No. 2 in the country in goals per game in both 2014 (3.44) and 2015 (4.44). Liberty ranked No. 6 in the country in points per game in 2014 with 9.36 ppg and increased on that mark in 2015, ranking No. 2 in the NCAA in points per game with 12.00.

Brampton, a native of Sussex, England, has playing experience at multiple levels. After serving as the team captain of Burgess Hill School field hockey, she played for U-16, U-18 and U-21 South of England teams as well as National League for Staines Hockey Club where her teams achieved championship success. Brampton then played for one year at Boston College as a graduate student.

"I am thrilled to announce Tilly's promotion to associate head coach", stated head coach Jodi Murphy. "I have been blessed to build a program with a coach of her caliber for the last five seasons. She has been an integral part of our success. She is a gifted teacher that brings expertise both in the technical and tactical side of the game. She is also passionate about the whole person development of the student-athlete and works tirelessly to ensure our student-athletes have all the tools to compete both in the classroom and on the field. As we embark on the next chapter of our program in the Big East, this promotion allows us to take another step forward in building a top-notch, nationally recognized program that is competing for God's glory."

"I'm very grateful for the opportunity to coach field hockey at Liberty and to continue my time here as associate head coach," commented Brampton. "I want to thank Athletic Director Jeff Barber and Senior Associate Athletic Director Mickey Guridy, along with all members of our administration for giving me this opportunity. I am extremely blessed and excited for this new venture and look forward to the future of Liberty Field Hockey."
