Katie Frederick

Coastal Carolina head lacrosse coach Kristen Selvage announced the addition of Katie Frederick as assistant coach in August of 2016.

Frederick comes to Coastal after being a four-year letter winner at Ohio State while serving as the Buckeyes' captain and starting goalkeeper this past spring.

Frederick took over the defensive calls early in the 2017 campaign resulting in the best season for saves with 173, saves per game at 9.11 and .506 save percentage. Frederick coached goalkeeper Harley Barrett to the 2017 ASUN All-Conference First Team and defender Caroline Williams to Second Team honors, as well as defender Emily D'Orsaneo to the ASUN All-Freshman Team.

The 2016 season, Frederick led Ohio State to a school-record 11-1 start while reeling off a school-record nine straight wins as the squad reached a program-best #8 in the national polls. The Buckeyes finished the season with an 11-6 mark as Frederick started all 17 in goal. She registered 108 saves and her 6.35 saves per game ranked third-best in the Big 10 Conference.

During her senior season, Frederick was tabbed both Inside Lacrosse National and Big Ten Defensive player of the Week. She made a career-high 14 saves and had a save percentage of 67 percent in Ohio State's 8-7 win over #18 John's Hopkins.

The Yorktown, N.Y., native helped Ohio State win 45 games, the program's best total over a four-year period.

In addition to her playing career, Frederick has worked on the camp staffs at North Carolina, Navy, University of Findlay and Ohio State and she coached for the House of Sports, Yorktown Bombers, Midwestern Force and XTeam lacrosse clubs.

A three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection (2014, 2015 and 2016), Frederick graduated from Ohio State in the spring of 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in human development and family science.
