Head Coach Michelle Webber enters her fifth season at the helm of the Tigers' field hockey team and her ninth with the program.
Webber, who is a member of the Alliance of Women's Coaches, recently graduated from the NCAA Coaches Academy.
Webber and the Tigers posted eight wins during the 2010 season despite a young squad that featured just four seniors.
Webber has coached eight All-Colonial Athletic Association selections in the last four years, including Kristie Blumer. She had a break-out senior season and earned second team All-CAA honors. In addition, Kathleen Morris was a CAA All-Rookie team pick.
In 2009, Webber led a relatively young squad that may have not seen the results in the win column but made great strides by season's end. Webber also coached Christina Boarman, who broke the school's career points and goals records.
During the 2008 season, Webber led the squad to a 5-0 record to start the season. The Tigers matched the 2005 squad for the best start in school history, posting shutouts in three of their first five games. As a team, the Tigers set the school record for goals in a season while Boarman set the record for goals and points in a season.
As the Tigers' acting head coach in 2007, she led the Tigers to back-to-back wins over Hofstra and Drexel on the final weekend of the season. With those back-to-back victories, the Tigers earned a berth in the CAA Tournament for only the second time in school history. In the CAA quarter-finals, Towson dropped a 3-2 decision to Northeastern when the Huskies came from behind to win.
As the Tigers' top assistant coach for the four years prior to being named acting head coach, Coach Webber helped Towson show steady improvement.
Coach Webber gained valuable head coaching experience at the college level prior to coming to Towson. Shortly after graduating from Goucher College in 1999, she was hired to coach at Hood College.
In her first season at Hood, she led the team to its first conference championship and was named Atlantic Women's College Conference (AWCC) Coach of the Year. In addition, she also served as head lacrosse coach and Recruitment Coordinator of Athletics at Hood College.
She had a 22-35 record in three seasons as the Blazers' field hockey coach. In 2002, she left to become an assistant field hockey coach at the University of Richmond.
After one year as an assistant coach at Richmond, she joined the Tiger staff as Lynette Mitzel's assistant coach.
In her year at Richmond, she helped the Spiders compile a 17-7 record. As the top assistant coach for Coach Ange Bradley, she helped the Spiders win the 2002 Atlantic-10 Conference championship and earn their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance.
The Spiders won an NCAA Play-In game with a 2-1 victory over Rider. Their season ended with a 5-1 loss to number-one ranked Old Dominion.
Webber was a three-year letter winner in field hockey at nearby Goucher College and was named co-captain in 1999. She received the team MVP award in 1997 and 1998. Webber was honored as an All-South Region Second Team member, selected first-team All-Conference and named to the All-Conference Academic team.
As a member of the Jamaican National Team from 1992-1996, she participated in the Junior Pan American Games (Venezuela), the Pan American Games (Argentina), and the World Cup Preliminary Qualifier (Trinidad and Tobago).
Webber received a B.A. in International Relations from Goucher College in 1999. Four years ago, she graduated from McDaniel College with her Master's degree in Exercise Science and Physical Education.
