Missy Foote named to second hall of fame

MIDDLEBURY — Longtime former Middlebury College women’s lacrosse coach Missy Foote will be one of six head coaches inducted into the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association’s first Hall of Fame class.
The inaugural class will be enshrined on Nov. 16 in an induction ceremony held the organization’s annual meeting at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Foote was the Panther women’s lacrosse coach from 1978 through 2015, a tenure during which her teams amassed a 422-114-1 record — the second-most wins among head coaches in NCAA Division III history.
Her teams won the D-III championship five times (1997, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2004), qualified for the NCAA tournament 21 times, and advanced to the semifinal round 14 straight years and 17 occasions overall.
Foote coached more than 35 first-team All-Americans, including 11 national players of the year. She was named the NESCAC Coach of the Year eight times and took home IWLCA National Coach of the Year honors five times (1994, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002). Foote is also a member of the US Lacrosse National Hall of Fame’s 2012 induction class.
