Monmouth announced the hiring of Meghan Clothier in August of 2015.
In her first season mentoring the Monmouth keepers, Clothier helped first year starter Caroline Huelster to the top save percentage, most saves and saves per game in the conference. Huelster, whose 180 saves were fourth most in the NCAA (and the fourth most in a single season in school history), earned First Team All-MAAC Honors. Clothier, who has a large part in monitoring the academic progress of the Hawks, helped mentor 10 players on the MAAC Academic Honor Roll team.
Clothier comes to West Long Branch after spending last year in England coaching at a number of club teams and clinics. She also spent time as a coach with two different Philadelphia based lacrosse clubs and served as a counselor at the Philadelphia Lacrosse Showcase Camp, working primarily with goalies.
Clothier began her college career at George Mason University before transferring to Temple University, where she appeared in almost 40 games for the Owls. The Brooklandville, MD native started all 17 games in between the pipes as a senior, finishing with 93 saves while ranking third on the team in ground balls. Clothier graduated from Temple in 2013 with a BA in English.
Monmouth Head Coach Eileen Ghent on Clothier
"We are thrilled to add Meghan Clothier to the Monmouth Lacrosse family. Coach Clothier brings a lot of fresh ideas into the program because of her collegiate playing career and international coaching experience. She was a technical goalie in the cage and her attention to detail has already made an immediate impact on our keepers. “
