Lisa Vogeley

Lisa Vogeley enters her third season as the head women’s lacrosse coach at Connecticut College in 2019-20.

In her first season, the Camels posted strong non-conference victories over Lebanon Valley and Endicott. The Dutchmen advanced to the championship game of the MAC Commonwealth Tournament, while the Gulls advanced to the NCAA Tournament. Off the field, the program was named an IWLCA Academic Honor Squad after posting a GPA which was above a 3.3 in both semesters.

This past season, the Camels were more competitive in NESCAC action and recorded a strong non-conference win on the road over NCAA Tournament participant Westfield State. The program also had another successful year in the classroom, which culminated with the Camels registering a GPA which was once again above a 3.0 during the 2019 spring semester.

Vogeley came to Connecticut College after quickly turning the Roger Williams women’s lacrosse program into a conference powerhouse, which included registering a 27-5 league record and advancing to the Commonwealth Coast Conference Tournament championship game in all four seasons as the head coach of the Hawks. In 2016, Vogeley was named the Commonwealth Coast Conference Coach of the Year after leading the program to its first conference championship and NCAA Tournament appearance in program history. She also mentored two conference player of the year winners as well as the league’s rookie of the year in 2016.

The success of the Roger Williams program extended off the field as well under Vogeley’s guidance. Every student-athlete in her four senior classes graduated, and the program was named an IWLCA Academic Honor Squad every year.

Prior to earning her first head coaching position, Vogeley served as an assistant coach at St. Mary’s College in California. In this role, she worked primarily with the defenders and goalies for the Division I program.

Vogeley also had an accomplished career as a Division I women’s lacrosse player and defender at St. Mary’s before beginning her professional coaching career. Despite redshirting in 2005 due to an ACL injury, she ranks fourth in school history in games started and sixth in games played while also serving as a three-year team captain.

A native of Port Washington, New York, Vogeley earned a bachelor’s degree in sport management from St. Mary’s in 2007 as well as a master’s degree in sports studies from the same institution in 2009.

Lydia Dexter

Lydia Dexter enters her first season as assistant coach of the Connecticut College women’s lacrosse program in 2023-24.

Dexter will make her debut as a full-time collegiate coach with the Camels. She previously served as a volunteer coach at Saint Joseph’s College of Maine, and also has coaching experience at both the high school and club level.

A native of Oakland, Maine, Dexter recently wrapped up a decorated four-year career at Saint Joseph’s, where she became the first women’s lacrosse player in school history to earn back-to-back Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Offensive Player of the Year honors. She was also a two-time IWLCA All-Region Second Team selection, and she graduated as the program’s all-time leader in points (375), points per game (5.77), assists (161), and assists per game (2.48).

Dexter led SJC to a 16-4 record in her final season and scored 85 goals with 46 assists for a total of 131 points. She captured All-GNAC First Team honors for the third time in her career, and capped the 2023 campaign ranked fourth in NCAA DIII in points, fifth in goals, and 10th in points per game (6.55).

In 2022, Dexter helped the Monks win their second GNAC Championship while setting school single-season records for points (155), points per game (7.38), goals (80), goals per game (4.44), assists (75), and assists per game (4.00). SJC also posted an overall record of 20-1 and suffered its lone loss in the opening round of the NCAA Championship.

Dexter’s coaching experience began in 2020 as an assistant at Lake Region High School in Naples, Maine. She then served as a volunteer coach at Saint Joseph’s in the fall of 2021 before returning to school to pursue her graduate degree. She has also coached for the Maineiax Lacrosse Club since 2021.

Dexter graduated from SJC in 2021 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science, and returned to earn a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership in 2023.
