Beth Maddox enters her fifth season as head coach of the Ball State University field hockey team in 2014. Maddox is the sixth head coach in Ball State history. Under her direction, the Cardinals have brought in three freshmen for the 2014 season, in addition to 17 current upperclassmen.

Maddox and the Cardinals finished with a 6-12 mark last season in conjunction with a 1-4 record in the Mid-American Conference. The Cardinals welcomed the first win of the season at Appalachian State in Harrisonburg, Va. with a score of 2-0. Ball State went on to claim its first home victory against Colgate thanks to the pair of goals from Tarel Teach resulting in a final score of 2-1. Ball State wrapped up the home season with an exciting 1-0 shutout win over MAC rival Ohio on senior day due to a late game goal from Biana Velez and help from Shelby Henley’s 13 saves in the game.

In her first season at the helm of the program in 2010, 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.
