Beth Maddox enters her fourth season as head coach of the Ball State University field hockey team in 2012. Maddox is the sixth head coach in Ball State history. Under her direction, the Cardinals have brought in 10 freshmen for the 2012 season, in addition to 10 current upperclassmen.

Maddox and the Cardinals finished with a 4-14 mark last season. The Cardinals opened up the season with a 4-3 overtime win over Lehigh in Bethlehem, Pa. Ball State would go on a five-game skid before claiming an 8-2 win over Lindenwood in the home opener. Ball State won an exciting 3-2 win over ranked Indiana with Allie White scoring in the final seconds. The Cardinals would wrap up the season with a 3-0 win over Bellarmine on Senior Day. Tori Widrick was named to the Second Team All-MAC.

In her first season at the helm of the program, Maddox and the Cardinals notched a 6-14 record, the squad’s best since 2006. Ball State posted wins over non-conference foes Robert Morris, St. Louis, Longwood and in-state rival Indiana, as well as a pair of league victories over Miami.

Devanny Kuhn collected First Team All-MAC and two MAC Offensive Player of the Week honors, in 2010 while Gretchen Lulow tallied Second Team All-MAC accolades and Maura Sawicki collected MAC Defensive Player of the week honors. The Cardinals also excelled in the classroom in 2010 with Kuhn and Lulow earning Academic All-MAC honors.

Maddox came to the Cardinals after completing her third season at Colgate in 2010, where she assisted Cathy Foto in all aspects of the program, including player development, practice preparation, video editing and recruiting. In addition, Maddox participated as a coach at the 2008 U.S. Field Hockey Association Futures Program.

Maddox, who also coached at individual and team camps at Old Dominion, was involved as a coach in the Virginia Beach Hockey League. Prior to her stint at Colgate, Maddox coached the Salem High School junior varsity field hockey team.

A 2005 graduate of Old Dominion, Maddox was a four-year letter winner for the field hockey team. As a midfielder, she played in 77 games, starting 66, and accumulated seven goals and two assists in her career. During Maddox’s time at Old Dominion, the field hockey team made consecutive NCAA tournament appearances and won the national championship in 2000. The Lady Monarchs were also four-time Colonial Athletic Association Champions while Maddox was on the squad.

A native of Virginia Beach, Va., Maddox graduated from Old Dominion University with a degree in communications. She graduated from Salem High School in 2000 and was a National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-American.
