McQuilkin Joins HPU Women’s Lacrosse Program as Assistant Coach

HIGH POINT, N.C. — High Point University head women’s lacrosse coach Lyndsey Boswell has announced that Kelly McQuilkin has joined the Panthers as an assistant coach.

“I’m so excited to welcome Kelly to our team this fall,” Boswell said. “She is a solid person and was a fierce competitor at Towson during her four years. Our defensive unit and goalies will benefit greatly from her knowledge and experience as a Division I athlete.”

McQuilkin comes to HPU after being a three-year defensive starter for the nationally-ranked Towson squad that faced the Panthers in the 2017 NCAA Touranment. She marked up on opposing team’s key offensive players, served as the Tigers’ team captain for 2017 and was selected to play in the 2017 IWLCA North-South Senior All-Star Game.

“I am very excited and thankful for the opportunity to come and be a part of the High Point women’s lacrosse program!” McQuilkin said. “I’m looking forward to working with Lyndsey and the girls to build on the success that they had last season and to prepare them to go even further this May.”

McQuilkin served as the defensive coordinator of the Hero’s Tournament Lacross Club 2021 Green squad from 2014-17 and worked as a private lacrosse coach from 2014.

She graduated Cum Laude from Towson in 2017 with a degree in business administration and finance.
