Albany Names Davos As Women's Assistant

from press release

– University at Albany head women's lacrosse coach John Battaglino announced today the hiring of Jessica Davos as assistant coach. Davos spent the previous two seasons as a Harvard University assistant.

At Harvard, Davos worked for Lisa Miller, her college head coach at Syracuse University. The Crimson posted their best Ivy League record in four years and had three all-league players in 2010. Prior to that position, Davos served as the head coach at Bryant University for one season. She guided the Bulldogs to a 10-8 record in the program's final NCAA Division II campaign. Bryant also finished third in the Northeast-10 Conference with a league mark of 7-3 and three players earned all-conference recognition.

In 2007, Davos was the head coach at Bentley College, a Division II program that also competed in the Northeast-10 Conference. She led the Falcons to their best season in seven years with an 11-6 record, improving the team's win total by four from the previous season. Bentley placed third in the league standings and reached the conference postseason tournament championship. Four Falcons received all-conference honors and one was chosen to the IWLCA All-America second team.

A native of Albany, N.Y. and a graduate of Albany Academy, Davos also worked at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as both an assistant women's soccer and women's lacrosse coach.

Davos (formerly DeRosa) earned four varsity lacrosse letters at Syracuse, where she received an undergraduate degree in English and textual studies. The Orange had a combined 44-19 record during her career, plus qualified for three NCAA Division I Tournaments and won the 1999 ECAC championship. She was selected to the 2002 Big East Conference Academic All-Star squad.

At Albany Academy, Davos was named to the 1998 U.S. Lacrosse All-America Team and was chosen CDWLL Player of the Year. She earned consensus All-Area honors in soccer and lacrosse. Davos and her husband, Jim, have one daughter, Alexa.
