LaSalle Field Hockey Opens Season August 24 in Stanford

PHILADELPHIA – Kristina Foster and Nick Bryan have been named assistant coaches for the La Salle field hockey program, head coach Michelle Marks announced today.
“Kristina did an excellent job helping our team reach the postseason last year,” Marks said. “She brings a lot of energy to our program and we’re excited to work together for another season.”

Foster spent the 2011 season as a graduate assistant coach with the Explorers, helping the team reach the Atlantic 10 Tournament and tie the program record for most A-10 wins.
A Tabernacle, N.J. native, Foster spent the 2010 season as an assistant coach with the Bulldogs. She helped Yale to an 11-6 record and a second place finish in the Ivy League with a 5-2 mark.

Foster was a four-year letter winner for Maryland and was part of the Terps’ 2006 and 2008 NCAA Championship teams. Maryland also won ACC titles in 2008 and 2009. A midfielder, she started all 24 games in 2009 and helped the team to a program-best 23-1 record. She earned a bachelor’s in psychology in 2010.
A Scotland native, Bryan played for Edinburg University in the top Scottish men’s and top Scottish University leagues. He helped the team to three Scottish IA titles and previously played for the Scotland National U18 team.
“Nick will be a wonderful addition to our coaching staff,” Marks said. “His international experience, as a player and coach, will help to tactically and technically improve our players’ skills. He is an energetic and knowledgeable young coach that our program will truly benefit from. We are excited for Nick to be joining our staff at La Salle.”
As a coach, Bryan coached for Edinburgh for three seasons. He also worked camps at Sacred Heart University and Dartmouth College in the United States.
