Emily Lowell


Head Field Hockey Coach/ Senior Women's Administrator

Castleton alumna Emily Lowell is entering her fourth year at the helm of the Spartan field hockey program. Lowell returned to the Green Mountain State in 2021 following a stint at New Haven and a successful playing career at her alma mater.

In her first season as the Spartans’ head coach in 2021, the team went 7-11 overall while posting a 5-5 conference record. Under Lowell’s leadership, sophomore Emily Harris earned NFHCA Third Team All-American, Little East Conference Rookie of the Year, and two time Offensive Player of the year and NCAA Statistical Champion honors with 30 goals and 64 points in 18 contests. Junior Kaitlin Bardellini joined Harris in conference recognition as an All-LEC Second Team selection and was 18th in the nation with 0.61 assists per game.

In her second season, Castleton Field Hockey won their first Little East Conference Championship in program history. With a 14-8 program record the Spartans competed in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2013.

As an assistant coach with the Chargers from 2018-20, Lowell helped lead the budding program to its inaugural victory on October 2, 2018 over Mercy College. Two freshmen, Taylor Geaglone and Alexis Rider, were named to the Northeast-10 All-Rookie Team with Geaglone earning a third team all-conference spot. The 2019 season saw the team more than double its win total from the previous season to win a school-record five games, including its first-ever shutout with a 1-0 victory over Southern Connecticut State. New Haven also won back-to-back contests for the first time in program history and set a new school record for scoring, burying four goals against Molloy. Junior goaltender Natalie Shaker and sophomore defender/midfielder Taylor Geaglone both earned All-NE10 Third Team honors.

During her time as a Castleton student-athlete from 2015-18, Lowell spent three seasons as a key member of the field hockey team. After being named to the All-North Athletic Conference First Team as a junior, the Brandon, Vt. native experienced a breakout senior campaign and was named the 2017 NAC Player of the Year. Lowell also collected All-NAC First Team, NAC Player of the Week, and Longstreth All-East honors along with being Castleton’s 2017 Field Hockey MVP.

Lowell received a B.S. in Sport Administration from Castleton University in 2018 and an MBA from the University of New Haven in May 2020.
