GORHAM, Maine -- The University of Southern Maine Athletics Department announced today that Ashley Durepo has been named head coach of the women's lacrosse program following a national search. USM Director of Athletics, Al Bean, made the announcement.
Durepo becomes the seventh head coach in the history (1972-1979; 2001-17) of the women's lacrosse program at USM. She succeeds Ashley Dyer who guided the program the past three seasons (2015-2017). Durepo is no stranger to the USM program having served as an assistant coach under former head coach Lauren Reid during the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
"I'm incredibly grateful to (Director of Athletics) Al Bean, (Associate Director of Athletics) Kim Turner and the entire search committee for the opportunity to return to the University of Southern Maine. I would also like to thank my mentors, (former University of New Hampshire coach) Sandy Bridgeman, Lauren Reid, and Michael Daly for their guidance," responded Durepo when asked for her reaction to being named head coach.
