Virginia head women’s lacrosse coach Julie Myers was honored as the US Lacrosse Coach of the Week, as announced by USLacrosse. She will be recognized on the CSTV broadcast of the Dartmouth-Notre Dame men’s lacrosse game on Saturday, March 17.

Myers led the Cavaliers to victories over Temple (18-8) and Penn State (13-6) last week. Virginia is off to a 5-0 start this season and is heading into a huge week. The Cavaliers square off against two unbeaten teams – hosting Maryland on Tuesday and traveling to top-ranked North Carolina on Saturday. Maryland head coach Cathy Nelson Reese was the US Lacrosse Coach of the Week last week.

Myers was honored along with Loyola head men’s coach Charlie Toomey, who led the Greyhounds to an 8-7 upset over top-ranked Duke on Saturday in The First Four in San Diego, a game broadcast by CSTV. The Greyhounds scored twice in the final 1:15 of the game to even their record at 2-2 for the season, winning their second consecutive one-goal game. Loyola hosts St. John’s in an ECAC game on Saturday.
