The former Division I athlete, who was named the fifth head coach in program history on July 18, 2017, inherited a program that is one of the two women's lacrosse members of the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) who has captured a conference championship (2010, 2011) and enters the season with a 6-8 (.429) overall record.
In just one season under Gilmartin-Dzitko, the Eagles recorded the second most goals (168) and points (234) in a single-season in program history and the most in over nine years.
In 2018, Husson posted a 6-8 record with an 4-3 mark in NAC play en route to claiming the #4 seed in the conference tournament. The Eagles opened postseason play with a 15-8 quarterfinal victory over #5 Maine Maritime Academy on April 27th, but the 2018 campaign came to a close with a hard-fought 15-8 loss at the hands of #1 and six time defending NAC Champion Castleton University on April 29th.
Following the season, senior attacker Amanda Deshaies earned First Team All-NAC honors for the first time in her career. Freshman attacker Paige Daigle, junior defender Serian Williams, sophomore midfielder Cali Newton and freshman defender Alex Butler all claimed Second Team accolades and sophomore defender Jordyn Labrie landed on the Sportsmanship Team.
