|Title:||Head Women's Lacrosse Coach|
Jen Dragoni Muston begins her sixth season as the head women’s lacrosse coach at York College of Pennsylvania as one of the top coaches in the region after leading York to a combined 27 wins in the last two seasons.
Muston led the 2012 Spartan squad to the best campaign in school history. The Green and White won a school-record 14 matches and earned the program's first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance. For her efforts, Muston was named the Capital Athletic Conference Coach-of-the-Year for the second consecutive year while she was also selected as the IWLCA Metro Region Coach-of-the-Year. The Spartans made their first appearance in the Capital Athletic Conference championship game after going 7-1 in the conference during the regular season.
In 2011, the sixth season of York's varsity women's lacrosse program, the Green and White posted an impressive 13-4 mark and reached the Capital Athletic Conference Tournament semifinals. For that effort, she was named the CAC Coach-of-the-Year by her conference peers.
Since Muston's arrival prior to the 2008 season, York has posted a 55-31 mark including ten-plus wins in four of her five seasons. For her career, Muston has coached 19 of York's 22 All-Capital Athletic Conference honorees, including a program-best seven selections in 2012. She is also responsible for recruiting and coaching 13 of York's 14 All-Region selections in addition to leading Kim Wayson to the program's first-ever IWLCA All-American award. Wayson was a second-team pick in 2012.
Guided by Muston, the Spartan program has begun an immense shift. A tireless recruiter and dedicated teacher of the game, Muston is steadily building a program that has made an impact in both the region and on the national scene. The Spartans begin the 2013 season ranked tenth nationally in the Lacrosse Magazine national preseason poll.
Prior to York, Muston served as an assistant women’s lacrosse coach at Goucher College for two seasons. She earned her master’s degree in education from Goucher as she was a Gopher from 2006 to 2007. Muston was responsible for assisting the head coach in all of the day-to-day aspects of running the Division III program. She assisted in planning practice, game strategies, student-athlete recruitment, scouting opponents, and game-tape breakdown.
Muston began her coaching career at the University of Maryland Baltimore County as she was an assistant coach in the spring of 2005. That coaching stint followed a stellar four-year career for the Retrievers. Muston was a four-year starter at UMBC and was a captain during her senior year. At the time of her graduation, Muston held the UMBC career assists record with 63 helpers while her 123 goals ranked her seventh on the Retrievers’ all-time list. She ended her career fifth on UMBC’s career points list with 186. A three-time first-team All-Northeast Conference selection, Muston was also the 2002 NEC tournament MVP and the 2003 conference Player-of-the-Year. She was named UMBC’s outstanding female athlete for the 2003-04 academic year. For those efforts, Muston was inducted into the UMBC Athletic Hall of Fame in the winter of 2012.
