Another interesting hire by Whit....


I remember Kristen Waagbo when she was a high school All-American at powerhouse Mount Hebron High School in Ellicott City, Maryland in the early 2000's. She was the top athlete in the Baltimore area and many were surprised that she didn't go to Maryland, but headed on to Duke. She's not the "grand slam" hire that I wanted but who knows if some of the bigger name coaches turned Tech down. I like her resume. She appears to be blue collar. I like her Navy and Army connections. Her record as a head coach isn't impressive but she started the Army program and we all know it isn't easy getting high school athletes to attend military academies like West Point. It's good that she spent time in New York (Long Island is a hot bed for women's lacrosse) and she's a Maryland native who has experienced team and individual success as a player. I also like that she has family connections to Tech. It took Whit a month to find a head coach. I'm assuming that he took his time and the hiring process was well thought out.
