Meg Decker enters her second season on the coaching staff for the VCU Women's Lacrosse team in 2017.
Decker is not a stranger to start-up lacrosse programs, as she was only one of 28 players drafted in the inaugeral United Women's Lacrosse League by the Philadelphia Force in May of 2016. She also started her collegiate career as an original member of the inaugural Navy Women's Lacrosse Team in 2008.
After earning Rookie of the Year and All-American Accolades at Navy, Decker transferred to Loyola to finish her career with the Greyhounds, earning All-Conference accolades and helping her team to the 2011 NCAA Quarterfinals. Recently, Decker has served as the Head Coach of the Flash Club Women's Lacrosse squad in Tustin, California, as well as the Director of the Whirlwind Lacrosse Tournament in Newport Beach, California.
"It was evident in our first conversation that Meg has a great deal to offer our program both on and off the field, the variety of experiences Meg has had will no doubt serve our program well. Her participation on the inaugural Navy Women's Lacrosse Team stood out as we look to build our own competitive program here at VCU," Head Coach Jen O'Brien said. "Meg's critical understanding of the game, in addition to her genuine energy and endless enthusiasm, will quickly impact our student-athletes and challenge those around her to excel. Throughout her playing career, Meg worked to become dominant on the draw circle and a massive threat on the offensive end of the field. We will directly apply her talents and skills as she works with our attacking unit and draw team. Similar to Tara, we are excited to utilize the lacrosse relationships Meg has established all across the country."
