New Haven, Conn. — Hilary Witt, a former member of the US National Team, has been named the interim head coach of the Yale women’s team.
Witt replaces John Marchetti, who has been reassigned within the Yale athletic department. In five seasons Marchetti compiled a 30-104-11 record. Before he came to Yale he was the head coach at Providence from 1980-94 and compiled a record of 280-131-21.
Last season Yale finished 9-19-3, 3-12-1 in the ECAC Northern League and finished seventh.
Witt is a 2001 graduate of Northeastern, where she gathered 207 points (113-94) in 139 games and was named one of the top 10 finalists for the 2000 Patty Kazmaier Award.
Witt joined the Yale coaching staff last season as an assistant coach.
Yale’s other assistant coach, Harry Rosenholtz, was named interim associate head coach. He has been with the Bulldog program for the last three seasons.
