She was also MVP in field hockey her senior year and won the Phyllis Vare Award, Springside’s highest athletic award. Liz earned national acclaim at Lehigh University, leading her team in both field hockey and lacrosse.

She also finished third in the nation in goals scored as a junior midfielder and ranks second on the Lehigh all-time scoring list with 222 points and third all-time in goals scored with 166. In field hockey, she registered 19 points as a senior and was a two-time captain. In 1994, both the lacrosse team and the field hockey team captured their first league title while Liz played there. After graduation, she became an assistant coach at Harvard and then returned to work at Springside. She enrolled in law school and did interesting research on Title IX. She then accepted a position at Lehigh where she helped rebuild their lacrosse program. An advocate for women’s sports, Liz is a hall of famer in every sense of the word: “incredible talent, relentless drive, wonderful leadership, dedication to giving back, and excellent vision and execution.”
