CARLISLE, Pa. - Dickinson College Director of Athletics, Dr. Les Poolman, has announced the hiring of Carol (Schmoeller) Hatton as the head coach of women's lacrosse. Hatton spent the past year teaching physical education at Gerstell Academy in Finksburg, Maryland. Prior to that, she served as the head coach of women's lacrosse at her alma mater, St. Mary's College of Maryland.

In her two seasons at St. Mary's, Hatton compiled an overall record of 23-14, leading the Seahawks to the Capital Athletic Conference final and the NCAA Tournament in 2008. During that time she coached nine All-CAC selections, nine All-Region selections, a Second-team All-American and a CAC Rookie of the Year. The team broke numerous school records in 2008 and won its opening round game in the NCAA playoffs. In addition, Hatton served as the Intramural Sports Coordinator. She will assume a similar role at Dickinson as well, serving as the Director of Intramural and Recreational Sports.

Hatton received a B.A. in Human Studies from St. Mary's in 2004, earning letters in both volleyball and lacrosse. She was a two-time All-American in lacrosse and a three-time All-CAC selection. She served as a team captain in lacrosse for two years and volleyball as a senior. In lacrosse, Hatton and her classmates made four NCAA Tournament appearances and captured a CAC Championship in 2002.

Hatton was named the CAC Player of the Year in 2004 and earned Coach of the Year honors in 2008, becoming the first person to accomplish that feat in the history of women's lacrosse in the CAC. She set school records for assists in a game (8), in a season (50) and for career with 112.

Prior to returning to St. Mary's in 2006, she spent two years at McDaniel College as a graduate assistant with the field hockey and women's lacrosse programs.

She recently married McDaniel College men's head lacrosse coach, Matt Hatton.
