Previously, she spent the past two seasons as an assistant coach at Illinois Wesleyan University. During her time at IWU, Batty helped the Titans reach their first ever conference championship and improve their records.

Before Batty landed in Illinois, she spent one season as a volunteer assistant coach at Division I Delaware State University. Batty also worked with Quaker City Lacrosse Club, which was originally based in Philadelphia.

Before Batty began her coaching career, she had an outstanding career as a player. Alyssa was a 4-year starting goalie at Wesley College in Delaware and upon graduation she had broken the school records for most saves in a season and most saves in a career. In her senior year, the NCAA recognized Alyssa as one of the top five returning Division III players in the nation. During her 2013 season, she would earn 2nd team All-Capital Conference.

Batty is excited to be our Girls Lacrosse Head Coach and is looking forward to a great summer.
