NORFOLK, Va. – ODU lacrosse head coach Heather Holt announced the promotion of Maggi Buckley to assistant coach after serving as volunteer assistant for the past year.

I am thrilled to welcome Maggi back to our coaching staff. Maggi is one of the most passionate and hard working coaches I know," Holt said. "She is a natural leader and will be an amazing mentor for our players. I am very excited to have Maggi start her coaching career with our program and return to the Monarch family!"

As a volunteer assistant, Buckley worked closely with the goalkeepers and helped guide the Monarchs to the ASUN Tournament for the fourth-straight season.

“I'm very honored and excited for this opportunity. I've always seen myself coaching lacrosse but I never thought that it would be at the collegiate level,” said Buckley. “This will be a huge stepping-stone for me and I am very eager to learn as much as I can. I am looking forward to being a part of a competitive program and working with this talented team!"

Prior to joining the coaching staff, Buckley was a standout goalie on the Monarch lacrosse team from 2014-2017. She started in every game her junior and senior year in goal and collected 468 saves, which is fourth best in the ODU record book. As a junior, Buckley earned second team All-ASUN and second team VaSID All-State. She also helped guide the Monarchs to their first-ever NCAA appearance after winning the ASUN Conference Tournament in 2016.
