Wolverines News · Ms. Erin Yates hired as new Varsity Girls Lacrosse Coach


The Watkins Mill Athletic Department is extremely pleased to announce the hiring of, Ms. Erin Yates, as the new coach for our Varsity Girls Lacrosse team. Coach Yates has written a few words to share with you about her excitement for joining the Wolverine Athletic Family:

“Hello Rines! After two years as an assistant, I am proud to officially be part of the Wolverine lacrosse family!

Lacrosse was a big part of my life starting in elementary school. I played high school lacrosse at Blake High School and then worked my way up to play in college. When I started working at the Mill as a special education teacher, I knew that I wanted to get involved in the lacrosse program. Shadowing coach Naylor for the past two years has been a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to carry on the values and traditions that he’s built with this team over the years.

I’ve been fortunate enough to meet many of you already as the JV field hockey coach and I am excited to expand my coaching career to Varsity Lacrosse.  I look forward to working with the girls and hopefully passing on my love for the game to them.”

Welcome, Coach Yates, to the Watkins Mill Athletic Family!
