Winning the 2016 and 2013 National Championship gives credibility to the Carolina Women's Lacrosse program and all that it stands for... and it starts at the top! The single most important factor of our camps is our superb coaching! The Carolina coaching staff is thrilled about having outstanding collegiate coaches, UNC players, as well as US players to assist with low camper to counselor ratio.
With 21 seasons as a head coach at North Carolina under her belt, Jenny Levy is among the top coaches in women’s lacrosse history. The owner of two national championships, she is the fourth-winningest coach in NCAA Division I women’s lacrosse history, the fourth-winningest active coach in the nation and a two-time National Coach of the Year.
Levy enters the 2017 season with a career record of 295-106, including 60-29 in ACC play.
She has led the Tar Heels to nine appearances in the NCAA Tournament semifinals, including six in the last eight years. Her 29 NCAA Tournament wins are fourth in NCAA history.
Levy is the fourth coach in women’s lacrosse history to win an NCAA championship as a player (with Virginia in 1991) and as a head coach. She is the eighth coach to win multiple NCAA titles.
In 2016, UNC set a school record for most wins (20) and fewest losses (two) in a season, went 7-0 to win the ACC regular season and won the second ACC Tournament and NCAA Tournament titles in program history. The Tar Heels also won a program-record 17 games in a row to close the season. Levy earned National Coach of the Year honors after the season.
One of the nation’s most experienced assistant coaches and a keen-eyed recruiter, Phil Barnes has been a key part of Carolina’s women’s lacrosse success since 2004. In November 2012, the IWLCA named Barnes its assistant coach of the year. On the field, Barnes works with the Tar Heel defense and goalkeepers, while also heading up the program’s recruiting efforts.
Barnes was a former head coach at Holy Cross and the University of Massachusetts. He was the head coach at UMass for three seasons (2000-02), capturing the Atlantic 10 regular-season and tournament championships and leading the nation in scoring defense in 2000 and head coach at the College of the Holy Cross during the 1996 and 1997 seasons, earning Patriot League Coach-of-the-Year honors in '96.
Barnes earned a B.A. in history from Assumption College in 1998. He is a native of Milford, NH.
As a player, Dionne helped lead Duke to back-to-back NCAA championships in 2013 and 2014. He was a two-time USILA All-America attacker and a four-year letterman with the Blue Devils who tallied 162 points on 140 goals and 22 assists in 78 career games. He was selected 18th overall in the 2014 Major League Lacrosse Draft by the Charlotte Hounds.
Dionne graduated from Duke in 2014 with a bachelor of arts degree in history. He is a native of Merrimack, NH.
