Patricia Nantume

Assistant Coach

Coach Patricia (Coach Pat, Coach Patty) is returning to the Wilson Girls Lacrosse coaching staff for the 2022 season. She previously coached as an assistant in 2015 and as a volunteer in 2016, when she worked with defenders and goalies. She played club lacrosse at Ohio State as a defender as well as collegiate field hockey, where she was a captain and training lead. Inspired by her coaches here at Wilson, she sees coaching as a mission to not only teach but to also be a positive influence on her players. Coach Pat loves coaching young players-from beginners who are just learning how to cradle, to goalies improving their explosive saves, and field players looking to develop new dodges or weak-side stick skills. She looks forward to watching the improvements in her players by the end of the season. Outside of coaching, Coach Pat enjoys big mountain adventures such as backpacking and skiing, cycling, and weightlifting.
