The 2019-20 season marked Ashley Irwin's 6th season as Keystone College's head field hockey coach and her 5th as the Giants' head women's lacrosse coach.

Irwin took over the Giants’ field hockey program just before the start of the 2014 season after coaching three sports at local high schools and was named Keystone's head women's lacrosse coach in November of 2015.

In 2018-19, Irwin helped lead the field hockey program to their first-ever CSAC title and an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament while leading the lacrosse team to the CSAC championship game.

Under her guidance, Savanna Robinson was named the CSAC Field Hockey Player of the Year in back-to-back seasons (2018, 2019). Robinson went on to earn Third Team All-American honors & played in the NCAA Division III Senior Game.

In the fall of 2017, Irwin led Keystone's field hockey team to a 6-10 overall record including a 3-4 record in Colonial States Athletic Conference games. The Giants narrowly missed out on a third straight trip to the CSAC playoffs after suffering a 1-0 setback to Marywood University in the final game of the season. During the season, Keystone defeated defending CSAC champion Cabrini University on October 21. Following the season, sophomore midfielder Savanna Robinson and senior midfielder Shelby Croasdale earned second team All-CSAC honors while sophomore defender Daphne Leenas was named to the honorable mention All-CSAC team.

The women's lacrosse team reached a milestone this past spring under Irwin's tutelage, posting a non-losing record in just the fourth year of the program's existence. The Giants also made their second straight appearance in the CSAC tournament, earning the number five seed by posting a 4-4 mark in league play. Individually, senior Emily Hawkins and sophomore Savanna Robinson were voted second-team all-conference in a ballot conduct among the league's head coaches and senior Nina Hodanich and sophomore Amy Llewellyn were named honorable mention. The program also posted its first shutout in school history, defeating Centenary University, 20-0, on April 7 in Hackettstown, New Jersey, then followed it up by shutting out Cedar Crest College, 20-0, three days later at the Giants' Athletic Field and Turf Complex in LaPlume.

In the spring of 2017, Irwin led Keystone's women's lacrosse team to its finest season in the three-year history of the program as the Giants earned their first-ever CSAC playoff berth.
