Maggie Waxter enters her first season as the Head Coach of the Franklin Road Academy Girls Lacrosse team following a two year stint at Amherst College in Massachusetts coaching lacrosse and field hockey for the 2018, 2019 seasons. Maggie will also be assisting in the MS Aspire department, substitute teaching, and helping in the Athletic Department.
Graduating from Washington & Lee in the spring of 2017 with a bachelor's degree in psychology, Waxter was a four-year member of the lacrosse and field hockey teams and served as a captain for both sports during her senior year.
A standout forward on the field hockey squad, Waxter racked up the accolades as an offensive juggernaut. A two-time All-American and National Academic Team selection, three-time First Team All-ODAC honoree and the 2016 ODAC Player of the Year, the Baltimore, Md. native was the first player in program history to have back-to-back three goal games and holds the program record for career hat tricks with four. On the lacrosse field she senior captained the first program appearance in the NCAA Final 4, starting every game her junior and senior year. Off the field, Waxter was a member of Washington & Lee’s University Athletic Council, Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the Generals Leadership Academy.
At Amherst College she coached the field hockey team to back to back Little Three Champions, as well as NFHCA top 20 team the entire season. She also coached the lacrosse team to two back to back NCAA Elite 8 Championships, almost making it to the Final 4 in 2019 but losing in the last 10 seconds of the game. Maggie is excited for the lacrosse season to begin already and is looking forward to growing the program at Franklin Road Academy.
