GREENSBORO, N.C. –Charlotte Dixon was named Guilford College's head women's lacrosse coach Friday. She replaces Sarah Lamphier, who resigned in August after five seasons to become assistant women's lacrosse coach at NCAA Division II Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania.
Dixon assisted Lamphier during the 2016 campaign and helped Guilford to a 6-10 record. Three Quakers earned All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference honors with Dixon on staff.
A 2006 Pfeiffer University graduate, Dixon served as head women's lacrosse coach at crosstown-rival Greensboro College from 2008-11. She became the school's senior woman administrator in 2009 and holds the Pride's career winning percentage (.563) record among coaches with at least three seasons on the sidelines. Greensboro compiled a 36-28 record in Dixon's tenure and reached four straight USA South Athletic Conference Tournament finals. Her 2010 unit notched the best record in school history (14-4). Greensboro had 23 all-conference commendations in her tenure.
Dixon shined as a goaltender at Pfeiffer where she twice earned first-team all-region honors from the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association. A two-time All-Carolinas Virginia Athletic Conference selection, she was the NCAA Division II Falcons' Most Valuable Player in 2006. Dixon's 7.13 career goals against average still stands 11th in Division II history and her school-record .623 save percentage in 2006 led the nation. She was one of 22 Division II students picked for the 2006 Farewell Lacrosse Festival All-Star Game.
The Galesville, Maryland, native graduated from at Southern High School and has staffed numerous camps and clubs, including Gamebreaker Lacrosse Camp, the United Youth Club, and LB3 Lacrosse. Dixon also serves as executive director of the N.C. Elite Lacrosse Club in Greensboro.
Dixon and her husband, Kevin Graves, reside in Greensboro with their two sons.
