Hamilton College alumna Liz Longley '07 was recently selected the Oberlin College head women's lacrosse coach.
The announcement was made by Oberlin's Delta Lodge Director of Athletics Joe Karlgaard. Longley comes to Oberlin from Lynchburg University, where she served as an assistant coach for the last three seasons.
Longley was an Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association All-American and three-time all-region selection at Hamilton. She was the 2006 Liberty League player of the year and left the school as the all-time leader in assists. Longley currently ranks second with 87 career helpers, fourth all-time in points (197) and is tied for 10th in goals scored with 110.

As a senior tri-captain in 2007, Longley led the Continentals to Liberty League regular season and tournament titles, and all the way to the NCAA Division III championship regional finals. She started 18 of 19 games and finished with 32 goals and 31 assists. For her efforts on the field throughout her career, Longley garnered Hamilton's Jack B. Riffle Award as the athletic department's most outstanding female senior athlete.
"Liz's passion for the game and excitement for working with our student-athletes came through during her interview with the department and the players," Associate Director of Athletics and Hiring Committee Chair, Kiki Jacobs, said. "We believe she will be a great fit here and are looking forward to having her as a member of the Oberlin community."

Longley earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Hamilton in 2007 and recently completed her master's degree in psychology from Lynchburg.
