Through 20 seasons as head coach at the University of Pennsylvania, Karin Corbett has established Penn as one of the nation's elite women's lacrosse programs. With 11 Ivy League championships in the past 13 years, 13 straight trips to the NCAA Tournament, including three trips to the national semifinals, Corbett's teams have established themselves as perennial NCAA powers. The pinnacle of Corbett's tenure was the 2008 season where the Quakers were NCAA Finalists and spent a number of weeks ranked No. 1 in the country after defeating Northwestern in the regular season.
Corbett, who took over a team in 2000 that won only one game the previous year, has led her teams to 229 wins since -- averaging 11.5 wins per season.
Kerri Whitaker has spent nine seasons on the sideline as an assistant coach for Penn Women's Lacrosse. Since joining the coaching staff, Whitaker has been a part of seven Ivy League championship teams, two Ivy League Tournament championship teams and nine NCAA Tournament appearances.
Working primarily with the attack, Whitaker has guided Penn players to 14 of the top 23 single-season goal-scoring marks in program history since arriving at Penn in 2011.
Nicole Troost enters her first season as an assistant coach for the University of Pennsylvania women's lacrosse program.
"We are so excited to have Nicole join our staff," commented Corbett. "She was an outstanding player on the field at UMass, but what stood out even more was her leadership ability as a student-athlete. It's clear she's taken those skills and applied them as a coach the past three years at Marist, developing a positive, competitive and winning culture. I know she's built tremendous relationships with those she has coached, and motivated them to excel both on and off the field. I can't say enough good things about Nicole, and we are all excited about the future of Penn Lacrosse!"
