Hampton (Va.) Adding Lacrosse for 2016; Carter to CoachHAMPTON, Va. – Hampton University has announced the addition of two new sports for the coming 2015-16 academic year: men's lacrosse and women's soccer, both of which have been intramural programs at the school. Both programs will compete as independents and play modified schedules.
With the additions, Hampton will feature 17 intercollegiate programs – seven men's programs, nine women's programs, and one co-ed program in sailing. Aside from sailing, all programs will be under the NCAA umbrella.
John McNabb will serve as head coach of the women's soccer program, bringing with him decades of experience playing and coaching the sport. He has worked at Hampton in the Department of Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, and McNabb has also played for Hampton International as part of the Virginia Rush Peninsula Adult League.
Having played for Hampton International since 2008, McNabb has been on several league championship teams, most recently in the fall of 2014. His specialty has been on the defensive side of the ball.
McNabb has obtained licenses from the United States Soccer Federation and Virginia Youth Soccer Association to coach U6-U8, U8-U10, and Under-12 squads. He also served as club coach at Hampton since the spring of 2013.
McNabb holds a doctorate and a Master's in physics from Carnegie Mellon, and he received his bachelor's degree in physics, mathematics, and history from Washington and Jefferson in Pennsylvania in 1995.
Lloyd Carter will serve as head coach of the men's lacrosse program after co-founding and coaching the university's club lacrosse team – a capacity in which Carter has served since 2010. A native of Baltimore, Md., Carter lettered in the sport in both high school and college – playing for Morgan State until the program was discontinued in 1981.
Carter's coaching experience began in Baltimore's Northwestern High School in 1999. During his tenure that stretched more than a decade, Carter was a four-time Baltimore City Lacrosse Coach of the Year, and he served as president of the Baltimore City Lacrosse Coaches Association.
Under his leadership, Northwestern won two regional, two city, and six divisional championships.
In 2003, Carter founded Blax Lax Inc., a club-level organization where college- and high school-level players competed in programs and summer leagues in Howard County, Md. From 2004-08, Carter co-founded and coached club lacrosse at Morgan State.
Carter received both bachelor's and master's degrees from Maryland Baltimore County.
