Back in July, it was announced that Corinne Desrosiers was leaving the Florida Tech women’s lacrosse programto take a job with Duquesne. an NCAA Division I school in Pittsburgh.
The coaching search led FIT in the direction of McKenzie Rafferty, who spent the last two seasons as the assistant coach at Regis University. Rafferty was officially named head coach on August 24th and made her way on to the Florida Tech campus on September 4th.
“I am settling in nicely here, thanks to the team and the administration here at Florida Tech,” she said when she sat down with Sports Lowdown Thursday morning for an exclusive interview.“It was obviously a big transition moving from Colorado, to Florida, but it’s something I really enjoyed. I’ve just enjoyed the process.”
Rafferty was a four-time letter winner at the University of Delaware and was also successful in the classroom. Among her many achievements was being named to the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll in 2016. Being a young coach has definitely worked to her advantage with this Florida Tech squad.
“I find that my youth has definitely allowed me to relate to the girls on a level that’s a little bit different, in a good way,” Rafferty said. “I think that because I am so close to having played, that I’m able to kind of see what they’re seeing and experience what they’re experiencing. Seeing their perspectives really helps.”
