ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:
The spring of 2015 was the 13th season for Bowdoin head coach Liz Grote, who is the winningest coach in Polar Bear women's lacrosse history. The Bears finished the season with 16-4 overall record making it the the NESCAC final and the round of final 16 in the NCAA tournament. Coach Grote was honored as the IWLCA regional coach of the year.
Over the course of her tenure at Bowdoin, Grote has won over 67% of her games and led the Polar Bears to unprecedented heights. The Polar Bears have made two NESCAC Championship game appearances, qualified for five NCAA Division III Tournaments and - in 2011 - accumulated the most wins in school history (18), the program's first-ever trip to the NCAA "Final Four" and runner-up finish in the Division III Championship.
In 2011 Grote surpassed long-time head coach Sally LaPointe as the winningest in program history. Coach Grote was honored as the IWLCA's New England Coach of the Year in 2005. Under her direction, Bowdoin has had at least one IWLCA Division III All-American in 11 of the last 12 years.
A native of Simsbury, Conn., Grote is a 1994 graduate of the University of Vermont and came to Bowdoin with an extensive background in college lacrosse. In addition to accumulating a school-best 32-18 record in three years at Wooster, Grote held assistant coaching jobs at Monmouth University (1995), Princeton University (1996) and the University of New Hampshire (1997-99).
