Last Sunday, Oglethorpe women's lacrosse, in conjunction with the Sports Medicine Department, hosted Division I Johns Hopkins' head women's lacrosse coach Janine Tucker (pictured on stage) for a six hour Coaches Clinic in Lupton Auditorium.
129 youth, high school and collegiate coaches from all over the Southeast participated in this event, making it the largest coaches clinic ever conducted by Hopkins and a first for Oglethorpe University. In addition to providing a detailed book of skills, drills, offenses and defenses, Coach Tucker also shared her team philosophy, favorite game strategies and practice plans for the first two weeks of the Blue Jays' preseason. Coach Tucker's dynamic personality and enthusiasm were well-received by the vast group of coaches who were quite impressed.
"It was fantastic to host such an elite Division I program like Johns Hopkins on the Oglethorpe campus and Coach Tucker could not have done a better job captivating the large audience in attendance," said Stormy Petrel head coach LeeAnn Tutchton. "We hope to continue the partnership and host more clinics in the future as we ramp up for Oglethorpe's inaugural season of women's lacrosse in the spring of 2013."
