I'm writing to inform you that we have selected a new Head Field Hockey Coach. Please join me in welcoming Lina Trucco!
I appreciate your patience as we worked through our process of finding a new coach. We are excited to have Coach Trucco join our Athletic Department. Coach has a strong background including playing at a high level in high school, qualifying for the 2011 National Futures Championship Team and qualifying for the 2010 National Indoor Tournament. She went on to play collegiately at Ohio University. Coach Trucco was a two year starter at Ohio and has earned a Masters Degree in Coaching Education. Her coaching resume includes coaching for Windy City Field Hockey in Chicago, the Upswing Clinics in Pittsburgh, Ohio University FH Camps and Penn State Field Hockey Elite Camps.
In addition, we are excited that Laine Greenawalt has agreed to take a much larger role in the program. She will work hand in hand with Lina on all aspects of the program. Coach Greenawalt brings a lot of experience with her as she has coached for the past 8 years including at her alma mater, Owen J. Roberts, X-Calibur Field Hockey Club and Team Golden Triangle. Her team qualified for the National Indoor Tournament in 2018 and she has worked with both our youth and high school teams at Mt. Lebanon. Coach also has a strong playing background participating in the National Hockey Festival of Champions, the National Indoor Tournament Champions and USFHA Futures Tournament. Coach Greenwalt also played collegiately at Ohio University.
As you can see, I'm really excited about the additions we have made to our Field Hockey staff! I look forward to them building a competitive team and providing a positive experience for our field hockey team.
Once again, welcome Coach Trucco and Greenawalt! Go LEBO!
