Kati Robbins ’02 is coming home. The 2001 North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) Women’s Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Year has been named the university’s new women’s lacrosse head coach.
Robbins returns to her alma mater after assistant coaching stops at three NCAA Division III institutions in the last four years. Most recently, Robbins helped Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa., to a 15-5 record and top 10 national ranking in 2006.
“Being named the next women’s lacrosse coach at Wittenberg University is a tremendous honor,” said Robbins, a native of Collegeville, Pa. “I am extremely excited, and I hope the players are ready to work hard to bring an NCAC championship to Wittenberg. I believe this team has great potential.”
As a student-athlete at Wittenberg, Robbins ranks among the all-time greats. In field hockey, the Tigers won three conference titles and advanced to the NCAA Division III Tournament twice during her career, which included two All-NCAC honors. In women’s lacrosse, Robbins holds school records for assists in a game (6), assists in a season (42) and career points (242). She was also a four-time All-NCAC and West Regional All-American during her playing career.
