DIVISION I

• Stacy Blue takes the helm at Lehigh this season. Blue is making the leap from Division II to Division I. Previously the head coach at American International, she led the Yellow Jackets to a 14-8 record and the program's first appearance in the NCAA tournament.

• An ACC team has captured nine consecutive national titles as Maryland (2010, 2008, 2006, 2005), North Carolina (2009, 2007) and Wake Forest (2004, 2003, 2002) have all contributed to the conference's streak. The last time a non-ACC team won the national title was Michigan in 2001.

• American’s Christine Fingerhuth, who graduated in 2010, has been nominated as the 2011 NCAA Women of the Year. The award honors distinguished graduating student-athletes who excel in athletics, academics, community service and leadership. She is one of only 142 student-athletes, across all three divisions, that have been nominated this year.
DIVISION II

• Kristina Taylor, 2010 National Player of the Year, hopes to lead Shippensburg to a national championship this season. Taylor’s career record in three seasons at Shippensburg is 59-10. Taylor scored at least one goal in 15 different games last season. The Raiders boast a 38-1 record overall when Taylor scores at least one goal.

• Jennifer Angers is the new coach at American International. Before coming to AIC she was an assistant coach at Lehigh. Angers will have some pretty big shoes to fill as the Yellow Jackets are coming off the best season in program history in which they captured a record 14 wins and made their first NCAA tournament appearance.

DIVISION III

• Lebanon Valley has hired Carol Miller as head coach. Miller coached 18 seasons at Delaware. While there, she took the Blue Hens to two national championship games. In 2009, Miller was named Division I National Coach of the Year. She looks to build on a 19-win season for Lebanon Valley.

• Clark forward Mel Melkonian hopes to top her 2010 season when she led the nation in points per a game (4.17). The All-American scored 32 goals and 11 assists in just 18 games.
