Panther lax coach nabs one more accolade

MIDDLEBURY — Recently retired Middlebury College women’s lacrosse coach Missy Foote added another accolade to her storied career by being named a Northeast Regional Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association. During her 35 years on the Panther bench, Foote earned the regional coaching honor eight times.
During her career, Foote was named the 1994, 1997, 2000, 2001 and 2002 Division III New England and National Women’s Lacrosse Coach of the Year. She earned NESCAC Coach of the Year honors every year from 2001 to 2005, as well as being chosen the Regional Coach of the Year in 2012, 2013 and 2015.
In her final season this past spring, Foote led Middlebury to the NCAA semifinals for the 17th time. The Panthers finished with a 16-4 record, giving the 2012 National Lacrosse Hall of Fame inductee a 422-114-1 record in 537 games coached with five NCAA titles. Her career wins place her second all-time among Division III coaches, while she ranks third among coaches throughout all divisions.
This spring, Foote coached four all-NESCAC, six all-region and three All-American players. At the conclusion of the regular season, Foote’s peers chose her as the NESCAC Coach of the Year for the sixth time.
