Stanford, Calif. - Former Ohio State standout and Canadian national team member Kylee Reade has been named Stanford's new assistant women's lacrosse coach, as announced by head coach Michele Uhlfelder.
"We are very excited to have Kylee on the staff," stated Uhlfelder. "She brings to us a lot of experience from a diverse background. We'll benefit from her international experience as a tough midfield competitor, as well as her background in ice hockey and box lacrosse."
Reade comes to The Farm following a stint as a lacrosse coach and an Assistant Instructor in Wellness at The Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana. While at Culver, her squads captured two Indiana state championships and posted an undefeated record against in-state competition. The London, Ontario native also coached a high school All-American and a high school Academic All-American during her time at Culver. Reade served as a health and physical education instructor and was instrumental in the planning and staging of the Indiana State Lacrosse Tournament as well as the Culver Invitational Tournament.
The 25-year old Reade brings international experience to the Stanford staff, having played for her native Canada in the 2001 IFWLA World Cup in England and helping the squad to a fourth place finish. She is currently training for the IFWLA World Cup to be held in the United States in 2005.
"Kylee is a very enthusiastic teacher," explained Uhlfelder. "She has the ability to analyze fundamentals, movement, and develop skills in players. Her success as a head coach at the high school level and her experience as a Canadian World Cup player are unique. We're excited about her knowledge and ability to break down aspects of the game with our players."
A four-year letter winner at Ohio State, Reade co-captained the 2002 Buckeye squad that posted an 11-5 mark and a second place finish in the American Lacrosse Conference. Reade was a four-time Ohio State Scholar-Athlete selection and was honored as an Academic All-Big Ten performer on three occasions. Her 28 caused turnovers during her junior season ranks 10th on the Buckeye's single-season chart. She is tied for sixth on the Ohio State career chart with 60 caused turnovers, and also ranks sixth on the career ground balls list with 123. Reade scored a career-high 15 goals as a freshman and was the lacrosse team representative to the Ohio State Student Athlete Advisory Board from 1998-2000. An ice hockey standout in addition to lacrosse, Reade was the co-captain of Ohio State's inaugural women's varsity ice hockey team from 1999-2000.
Reade has been extremely active on the camp circuit, having assisted on coaching staffs at camps hosted by Denison University, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Ohio University.
