Oxbridge Academy is pleased to welcome the new head Girls’ Lacrosse coach, Katy Richardson. Richardson attended Park Vista Community High School, where she played defense and attack. She led her team to the state championship game two years in a row.  During her senior year, she was recruited to play for Adelphi University as a defender. Coach Katy and her team won the Division II National Championship during her sophomore year.  Following this success, she transferred to a small Division I school named Presbyterian College, where she played attack. In 2014 while attending Presbyterian College, she broke two school and conference records for the most goals in a single game and the most points in a single game. Not only was she a stellar athlete on the field, she also excelled in the classroom. She graduated with a degree in Psychology from Presbyterian College in 2016 with Magna Cum Laude Honors for her research into athletes’ motivation patterns and how the patterns affect athletic performance. During her free time, she works as a recruiting coordinator for the Lax Maniax Girl’s Lacrosse Club and is an avid crossfitter. Prior to coming to Oxbridge, Richardson was an assistant coach at The Benjamin School.


When the opportunity arose to coach for the Thunderwolves, Richardson said, “I realized the strong support there was at Oxbridge and it seemed like an amazing program to be a part of.” In regards to the 2017 lacrosse season, she strives to help the team make a strong showing and win the district title once again. She hopes to bring new athletic talent to the sport of lacrosse and Oxbridge. Oxbridge is very excited to have Coach Katy as the new girls’ lacrosse coach.  The team enjoys a successful season thanks to the leadership of Coach Katy.
