Snohomish’s Carroll named girls lacrosse coach of the year

SEATTLE — The Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association has named Snohomish girls head coach Katie Carroll as its 2014 High School Coach of the Year.

“I’m so honored. Especially with so many coaches in the league doing so many amazing things. I didn’t expect it,” said Carroll, who lives in Oak Harbor. “It’s definitely an honor to receive the award,” she said.

The annual coach of the year award is a part of the high school lacrosse league’s annual awards program that includes high school sportsmanship and scholastic achievement awards.

This spring Carroll guided Snohomish to the semifinals of the Washington Lacrosse Girls State Championship Tournament with a 12-3-0 overall record. On the way to the post season, Carroll’s team recorded wins over five state tournament teams, including defending state champion Lakeside and longtime state powerhouse Bainbridge.

The post-season appearance was the eighth consecutive trip to the state tournament and ninth overall since the combined Snohomish-Glacier Peak program won its first girls state title in 2006.

“There are some quality wins that have to happen for an award like this to happen,” said Carroll who recently announced that this is her last season at Snohomish as she awaits her husband’s next assignment with the U.S. Navy. “A coach is only as good as how the players respond to them on the sidelines.”

Carroll is a 2009 graduate of Georgetown University where she won four letters as a midfielder and defender helping guide the Hoyas to four consecutive Big East Lacrosse Tournament berths and NCAA berths in three of her four years on campus including an NCAA quarterfinal appearance in 2006.

Other Washington Schoolgirls Lacrosse Association award winners in 2014 include Issaquah with the Varsity Sportsmanship Award and Roosevelt High School with the JV Sportsmanship Award.
