"I believe in what the college has to offer, especially with the experiential learning opportunities.  The student-athletes on the women's lacrosse team are wonderful young women, they have a positive attitude and they all want their program to grow. The staff I met within the athletics department was welcoming and supportive, and I am looking forward to being a part of that."

Prior to arriving at Chowan, McCaffrey-Jacobs was an assistant coach at Alderson-Broaddus College in Philippi, West Va.
