@DuqLax Names Caitlin Prince Assistant Coach
Sept. 26, 2016
A former attacker and Duquesne class of 2014 graduate, Prince returns to the Bluff after serving as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the Robert Morris University women's lacrosse team during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
"I am absolutely thrilled to bring Caitlin Prince on board as our assistant coach," said Evans. "Caitlin was a standout attacker during her time as a Duke and she has developed into a phenomenal coach since she left the Bluff two years ago. Her passion, drive & enthusiasm for the game of lacrosse make her a perfect role model for our players. When it comes to individual player development, Caitlin is a terrific instructor. This is something we are focusing on this year and she will be a crucial part of our growth. I look forward to working with her and am really excited to see where this year takes us."
While at Robert Morris, Prince coached seven student-athletes honored with All-Northeast Conference selections. The Colonials made it to the NEC semifinal and finished with winning records in each of her two seasons with RMU.
As a Duke, Prince ranked third in program history with 162 career goals and had a program best 62 goals in a single season in 2012. She was named to the Atlantic 10 First-Team All-Conference twice (2012 and 2014) and was placed on the A-10 All-Rookie Team her freshman season.
Additional honors for Prince include being named to the 2012 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coach's Association (IWLCA) All-West/Midwest Region Second Team and 2012 A-10 Academic All-Conference. Prince also had the opportunity to try out for the U.S. Lacrosse national team.
"I am honored to have the opportunity to come back and coach at my alma mater," said Prince. "I look forward to challenging players to think of the game differently and develop personally on and off the field. I am excited to bring what I have learned back to the Bluff and continue building the program as a strong competitor in the Atlantic 10."
A native of Sykesville, Maryland, Prince graduated from Duquesne in 2014 with a degree in sociology and communications.
