What you love most about Dartmouth lacrosse: The tradition, confidence and Dartmouth pride everyone on this team has and exudes the second we step foot on the field, whether it’s for a practice or a game.
“Christine has made the transition from opponent to coach and to friend seamlessly during the past two years. Her countless hours of extra time spent editing highlight tapes gets the team going before each game and we only hope to keep the highlights coming for her. She has the utmost respect for this coaching staff and has taught us not only how to rocket a sidearm shot from the eight-meter, but how to carry ourselves on and off the field. She has been an invaluable member of Dartmouth lacrosse for every player on this team.” — Jen Pittman ’07
“Christine adds another great dimension to our incredible coaching staff with her ability to see and explain attack movement to us in easily understandable ways. She is very observant of the smallest details, but these are sometimes the details that, when identified, help us to bring our game to the next level. Christine’s coaching has been a major factor in my development as a player and has been the same to other women on the team.” — Kate Labrum ’08
