HANOVER, N.H. – It was announced Wednesday that Danielle Spencer has accepted the head coaching position with the Stanford women’s lacrosse program.
Spencer leaves Dartmouth after three years of serving in the same position with the Big Green women’s lacrosse team.
This past season, she guided the team to an Ivy League title and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Spencer led the Big Green back to the Ivy League Tournament for the first time in five seasons in 2018 and repeated the feat again this spring.
Under her guidance, six players earned All-Ivy League First Team honors in the last two years with Kiera Vrindten ’20 earning 2018 Goalkeeper of the Year honors. Additionally, Kathryn Giroux ’19 has earned a pair of All-America honors from Inside Lacrosse, including a spot on the third team in 2019.
For her role in Dartmouth’s return to the top of the conference standings and into the national rankings on a consistent basis, Spencer has been named an Ivy League Coach of the Year in each of the last two seasons.
A national search for Spencer’s successor will begin immediately.
