"It is of utmost importance that the women's lacrosse program reflects the mission of Westminster,” said first-year head coach Kim Eldridge. “My goal is to create a motivating subculture where young women feel empowered to reach their fullest potential in the classroom, community, and on the field. I look forward to establishing a foundation of tradition and pride and contributing to the Titan community."
