Women’s Lacrosse Bids Farewell to Kenahan

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – After three years with Embry-Riddle Women’s Lacrosse, Caitlin Kenahan announced that she will be leaving the program on Tuesday.
“My husband is an active-duty Marine Corps Officer and unfortunately for me, that means that this duty station at Embry-Riddle was always temporary – though I did hope it would last a little longer,” Kenahan said.

Kenahan was selected as the Eagles’ offensive coordinator by then head coach Leah Peppelman for the 2021-22 season and was elevated to head coach when Peppelman left to pursue other opportunities the fall of 2022.
Under Kenahan’s guidance the Eagles achieved several milestones, including a program-best 13 wins and the program’s first postseason appearance in 2023. The Blue & Gold went on an 11-1 to start the 2024 campaign and three wins against ranked opponents, including a first-time defeat of seventh-ranked Rollins, propelled the Eagles to the highest national ranking in program history at No. 8.
Kenahan leaves as the winningest coach in the program’s brief history with 25 wins. She also coached three All-Americans, three All-Region selections and nine All-Sunshine State Conference honorees, including the 2024 SSC Freshman of the Year Eliana Enners.
“I am so grateful for my last three years at Embry Riddle and for the opportunity to lead such an amazing group of hard working and motivated young women,” Kenahan concluded. “I would like to thank John Phillips and the administration for all their support as I grew as a coach. This really has been the most amazing experience and I’m going to cherish all the memories we made together. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this program!”
A national search for the program’s next head coach will begin immediately.
