After beginning her coaching career as a Teaching Fellow, Andover Field Hockey Head Coach Kate Dolan developed her coaching background through coaching at Dartmouth College for a year before returning to Andover in 1990. Dolan has coached Varsity and JV Field Hockey, Girls Varsity and JV Ice Hockey, and Varsity Boys and Girls Lacrosse during her 30 years at Andover.
As a former collegiate field hockey and lacrosse player, Coach Dolan accredits her coaching abilities today to the experiences she had with her own coaches in college. While at the University of New Hampshire, her field hockey team made it to the NCAA playoffs every year and her lacrosse team also achieved success, winning the NCAA Division I Women’s Championship.
