Brittany Read

Read will serve as the new assistant coach under Kelly and she will primarily assist with training goalies and helping with defensive strategies.

"I am excited to bring someone of Brittany's playing experience to the DU women's lacrosse program", Kelly said. "Brittany's collegiate background with two different coaching staffs provided her with a unique resume. She was one of the top goalkeepers in the country and I know she will help our keepers continue on their path of excellence."

A 2018 grad from the University of Oregon, Read was most recently named a member of the All-Pac-12 Second Team, and broke the Oregon single-season record for saves (179) and Oregon single-game record for ground balls (10). Read was a starter in all 18 games for the Ducks in the 2018 campaign.

Before the University of Oregon, Read spent three seasons at Louisville where she showcased her talents 42 times in net. Read helped the Cardinals advance to three NCAA Tournaments and remains the Louisville record holder for career save percentage (.516).

Prior to her colligate career, Read lived with her parents Denise and Don in Gibbsboro, New Jersey, where she attended Eastern Regional High School. While there, she was a four-time letter winner, named honorable mention for U.S. Lacrosse All-America, shattered Eastern Regional's record for saves with over 600, and was a two-time all-conference first-team honoree.

"Brittany's passion for lacrosse and her positive coaching style made her the ideal fit for our staff," Kelly said.
