Acacia Walker Named Boston College Women's Lacrosse Coach

A day after the school confirmed that women's lacrosse coach Bowen Holden would not be returning to the program, the program announced that they were elevating associate head coach Acacia Walker to head coach.

Acacia Walker has been named head coach of the Boston College women's lacrosse team, Director of Athletics Gene DeFilippo has announced.

Walker joined the BC program as the associate head coach prior to the 2011 season. The Annapolis, Md. native served as the Eagles' offensive coordinator and played a key role in recruiting, as well as in many other facets of the daily operations of the BC program.

"I feel privileged to be selected as the head coach of the Boston College women's lacrosse program,'' Walker said. "I am confident we will provide a healthy, energetic, positive experience for our student-athletes. The opportunity Boston College provides its student-athletes is one of the best and I plan to bring in premier student-athletes to add to BC's rich tradition and success. I am committed to building a strong program that will make the BC community proud.''

Walker has spent the last two seasons as the Eagles associate head coach. She previously served as associate head coach at UMass and assistant head coach at Northwestern. Walker graduated from the University of Maryland in 2005 and was a four-year letterwinner with the Terps.

Best of luck to Walker and the women's lax team.
