The Methodist University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced Wednesday that Shenandoah University women's lacrosse coach Lindsey Lutz has been selected for induction into the MU Athletics Hall of Fame.
Lutz, a 2006 Methodist graduate, left the Monarchs women's lacrosse program as its all-time leading scorer.
In addition, she earned All-USA South honors three times in her career and was named as the 2006 USA South Conference Player of the Year.
In 2009, Lutz (then Lindsey West) took over the SU program. She has piloted the Hornets to a 25-10 record in the past two seasons and was named as the 2010 USA South Conference Coach of the Year.
Lutz will be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame on Nov. 2.
"This is an honor I never expected," Lutz said in a news release. "When I got the call [telling me I was selected], I almost didn't believe it.
"I am very humbled to receive this honor."
Lutz is the fourth current coach on the SU staff that will be a member of a Hall of Fame. Baseball coach Kevin Anderson was inducted into the James Wood (Va.) High School Hall of Fame in 2006 while women's soccer coach Liz Pike was the lone selection into the American University Hall of Fame in 2011.
Assistant football coach Joe Jacoby is a member of two Halls of Fame. In June 2010, he was inducted into the Kentucky chapter of the NFL Retired Players Association HoF after previously receiving the same honor at his alma mater, the University of Louisville.
