Aggies take on UMBC, Mount St. Mary's and Drexel during quarter break
Theresa "Tee" Ladouceur, a former standout at Syracuse and most recently an assistant coach at Albany, was announced as the head women's lacrosse coach at UC Davis by interim director of athletics Teresa Gould in August 2015. She became the fourth head coach in the program's varsity history.
In that first Aggie season, Ladouceur guided the Aggies the their first conference tournament berth since 2010. Two players, namely senior Ellie Delich and freshman Taylor Cuenin, earned All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation recognition. Eight Aggies captured MPSF All-Academic.
Ladouceur (pronounced "LAD-uh-SIR") served under Albany head coach John Battaglino from 2013 through 2015, helping the Great Danes amass records of 12-5, 14-3 and 14-5 in those three seasons, respectively. Albany advanced to the America East title game in each year, adding a berth to the NCAA postseason in 2015.
Ladouceur's primary duties were with the offense. In that capacity, she mentored two America East Offensive Players of the Year, one conference Player of the Year, and five first-team all-conference midfielders and attackers. Among her Albany protégés was midfielder Rachel Bowles, an All-Northeast Region selection in 2014 and 2015.
Prior to her tenure in the New York state capital, Ladouceur served as the head coach at her alma mater of Bethelem Central High School for one season, and assistant coach/acting head coach at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
In her three-year career at Syracuse, Ladouceur scored 130 goals with 112 assists in 68 games, adding 45 ground balls, 34 draw controls and 36 caused turnovers. She made the IWLCA All-America third team in 2010, adding a Womenslax.com All-America nod and a selection as one of just 48 players on the Tawaaraton Watch List in 2011. Ladouceur also garnered All-Big East distinction in each of her junior and senior years. Her collegiate career began at Albany, where she was a two-time America East Rookie of the Week in 2008.
During her playing career, Ladouceur served on camp and club staffs throughout New York state, including the Albany Elite LC (2009-10), Relentless Hustle LC (2011), Syracuse lacrosse and Nike Cup team camps (2008-11), Gary Gait's Laxapalooza (2009-10) plus Albany's own Battalax elite camps.
