June 9, 2016 – IWLCA President Alicia Groveston has announced the results of the 2016 IWLCA Board of Directors election. Three new Board members were elected in this election, along with four members who were currently serving on the Board.

“I am very pleased to welcome our new and returning Board members,” said Groveston. “We have a very good blend of experienced coaches who have a proven track record of service to the IWLCA. I look forward to working with the entire Board and our staff this year as we continue to seek out opportunities to fulfill our mission and serve our membership.”

Meghan McDonogh, the head coach at Catholic University of America, was elected as the IWLCA Vice-President. McDonogh previously served the Board as a Division III representative and most recently was chair of the Annual Meeting Planning Committee. Rachel Dell, head coach at John Carroll University, joins the Board as the IWLCA Secretary. Dell is a first-time Board member who has served as the Chair of the Nominating committee for the past two years.

Melissa Lehman, Associate Head Coach at Pennsylvania, was re-elected as a Division I representative. She is joined in that role by Kristen Selvage, head coach at Coastal Carolina University, who had previously served as the organization’s President and as a Division II representative.


The Head Coach at Limestone College, Scott Tucker, was elected as a Division II representative after serving a two-year term as Vice President. Courtney Farrell, head coach at Tufts University, and Mary Schwartz, head coach at Roanoke College, were re-elected to the Board of Directors as Division III representatives.

“I would be remiss if I did not thank our outgoing Board members for their service to the organization and dedication to their positions. Meghan Burker (Virginia Teach), Julie Duffy (Findlay), Cynthia Wilson (Scranton), Steve Wagner (Brockport), Jackie Trainer (Wilmington), and Julia Decker (Fort Lewis) all served with distinction and will be missed,” Groveston said.

The full 14-member Board will meet in Richmond, Va next week prior to the IWLCA Champions Cup recruiting tournament.
