Mackenzie Lawler is in her second season as an assistant coach of the Central Michigan women's lacrosse program.
Lawler joined head coach Sara Tisdale as a volunteer assistant in August, 2015, shortly after Tisdale was named the first women's lacrosse head coach in CMU history.
Lawler was a four-year letter winner and three-year starter at midfield at Robert Morris (Pa.), graduating in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree. She was a four-time All-State selection as a player at Okemos High School, from which she graduated in 2010.
Lawler owns and operates Mi Elite Lacrosse in Okemos, has coached on several levels both in Michigan and in Pennsylvania, and has been the head coach and Michigan coordinator for U.S. Lacrosse.
"As a former Division I student-athlete, Mackenzie has a great knowledge of the game and understands what it takes to be a successful student-athlete," Tisdale said. "Mackenzie and I share a common goal of building CMU lacrosse into a respected program and a program that competes for an Atlantic Sun championship consistently."
