Kate Henwood

Executive VP of Girls Lacrosse/ Head Coach 2020

Kate Henwood joined the NXT team in June of 2015 as the Director of Girls Lacrosse. She oversees the NXT Girls Lacrosse Club and all Girls Lacrosse Training/Educational programming.

A Garnet Valley ('01) and LaSalle ('05) alumna, Henwood coached the University of California-Davis Aggies for three seasons ('13-'15) after winning back-to-back state championships at Garnet Valley in her second and third seasons at the school.  In her initial season at UC Davis, she led the Aggies to an upset of nationally-ranked conference rival Stanford.

Her Garnet Valley tenure ('10-'12) produced multiple All-Americans, brought the school its first two state titles and laid the foundation for what has become Pennsylvania's premier program.  Prior to taking the helm at Garnet Valley, Henwood served as the top assistant and defensive coordinator at Villanova University ('07-'09), taught 8th grade social studies for 7 years at Garnet Valley, and earned her M.A. in American History from Villanova University.
