SUNY Cortland women's lacrosse head coach Kelly Lickert-Orr has been selected as the 2015 Division III National Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA). She was also named the IWLCA Empire Region Coach of the Year.
Lickert-Orr, in her first season as Cortland's coach, led the Red Dragons to a 22-1 record and the program's first national title. Cortland won its 17th straight State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) crown with two wins in the league postseason tournament, and Lickert-Orr was voted as the league's Coach of the Year.
Cortland then won five straight games in the NCAA Division III playoffs. The Red Dragons capped their title run with a 17-6 victory over top-ranked Trinity College (Conn.) in the national championship game May 24 in Chester, Pa.
Lickert-Orr coached four seasons at Keuka College prior to her arrival at Cortland. Her five-year career collegiate coaching record is 74-12 (.860).
