Eulitt Arrives At West Point Following Two Seasons With George Washington
Noto Family Head Women's Lacrosse Coach Kristen Waagbo announced the addition of Bria Eulitt as an assistant coach on August 1, 2014. Eulitt comes to Army after two seasons as the top women's lacrosse assistant at George Washington University.
"It is an absolute pleasure to welcome Bria to the Army Women's Lacrosse family," Waagbo said. "I have watched Bria evolve as both a player and coach over the years and I am excited that she shares the vision and will to build the foundation of excellence for Army women's lacrosse. Her positive energy, defensive expertise and tireless work as a recruiter and teacher will be huge assets to our budding program. She will be a fabulous mentor and coach for our cadet-athletes, and we are extremely fortunate to have her representing our program."
Eulitt, who played collegiately at Richmond, served as the first assistant under head coach Tara Hannaford at George Washington for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. During her time with the Colonials, Eulitt was responsible for training the team's defenders and goalkeepers, preparing in-depth scouting reports on opponents, coordinating team workout sessions and serving as the program's academic liaison.
In her first season with George Washington, Eulitt guided a defense that ranked third in the Atlantic 10 Conference with 159 goals against, after the Colonials allowed 190 in 2012, prior to Eulitt's arrival. During the 2014 campaign, Eulitt played a role in mentoring three All-Atlantic 10 players, including senior defender Madison Pohle, while helping four student-athletes land on the conference's all-academic team.
Prior to her two seasons at George Washington, Eulitt served one year as an assistant with Richmond's women's lacrosse program. At Richmond, Eulitt worked primarily with the team's defense and helped guide the Spiders to a berth in the 2012 A-10 Tournament Championship game.
"I want to thank Coach Waagbo and the athletic department for providing me with the opportunity to be involved in the first-ever women's lacrosse program at the United States Military Academy," Eulitt said. "I am extremely excited and honored to work with such an outstanding staff. I am really looking forward to developing cadet-athletes who are driven both academically and athletically while continuing the traditions that are so deeply rooted at West Point."
A native of Ellicott City, Md., Eulitt earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from Richmond in 2011 following a four-year playing career with the Spiders. A two-time All-Atlantic 10 selection, Eulitt helped lead Richmond to appearances in the league title game during the 2008, 2010 and 2011 seasons. Additionally, she served as a team captain during her junior and senior campaigns, was an all-state selection by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) organization as a sophomore and drew recognition on the all-conference rookie team following her freshman season.
Eulitt spent the summer of 2010 playing for the Wilderness Lacrosse Club in Adelaide, South Australia, where she also handled coaching responsibilities. Eulitt brings experience as a camp counselor at a number of universities to include clinics at Duke, Georgetown, Maryland, Navy, Richmond and Virginia. She also served as an assistant coach with M&D Lacrosse from 2007 to 2009.
Before her arrival at Richmond, Eulitt was a member of the United States U-19 National Team that won a gold medal at the 2007 World Championships in Peterborough, Ontario.
Eulitt is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in Education at George Washington.
