Tech grad to coach women's lacrosse

Alexis DiGiovanni was announced Monday as the new head coach for the Indiana Tech women's lacrosse team. 

DiGiovanni, a 2015 Tech graduate, is the program's sixth head coach. 

“We are excited to welcome a proud alum in Alexis DiGiovanni back to the Warrior family,” Tech athletic director Debbie Warren said. “Alexis stood out in a strong candidate field and we expect her to continue the program's strong tradition of excellence on an doff the field that she helped create during her time here as a student-athlete.”

DiGiovanni was an assistant coach during the 2016 season as the Warriors went 14-4 and won the regular-season Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference crown and advanced to the NAIA National Invitational quarterfinals and the National Women's Lacrosse League championship.

As a player, DiGiovanni, a Chicago Heights, Illinois, native, tallied 109 goals and 82 assists and helped the Warriors to two WHAC championships and one WHAC tournament title.

“I am beyond excited to return to Indiana Tech,” DiGiovanni said. “It is a goal of most coaches to lead their alma mater and I am grateful for the opportunity to do so. I am ready to start working with the team to create a culture of success that leads to a national championship and a network of successful alumni.”
