Former Boston College goalkeeper and midfielder, Catherine Conway hired as new women's lacrosse assistant coach.
Manhattan women's lacrosse coach Diane Haddeland announced the hiring of Catherine Conway as the Jaspers assistant coach on Thursday. Conway joins the program after a four-year career at Boston College as both a goalkeeper and midfielder.
"Catherine is wise beyond her years," Haddeland said. "She has come in with great enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. She will be a breath of fresh of air to our defense and goalies. Her versatile playing experience will enhance Manhattan College both offensively and defensively. We are very happy to welcome her on board."
During her time with the Eagles, Conway played 39 games in net finishing with a career save percentage of .367 and an 11.09 Goals Against Average (GAA). The 2012 graduate had her best season as a senior with a .392 save percentage and a career best 10.20 GAA in helping BC to a 10-8 record. She was also awarded the Red Bandana #19 Award, in honor of 1999 BC grad Welles Crowther who passed away in the Sept. 11 terror attacks and is given to the student-athlete that shows both selflessness and sacrifice.
In high school, Conway was a first team Dual County and EMASS All-Star for Acton-Boxborough High School in Massachusetts. A member of the Lower New England Team Two at the U.S. Lacrosse National Tournament, she has served as a coach with the Lady Laxachusetts club in Boston, Mass., and TopSide Lacrosse out of New Rochelle, N.Y. as well as a Special Olympics soccer coach.
