Set to begin her eleventh season as the Owls head coach, Katie Clark (née Arsenault) has led the team to unprecedented success during her tenure. Since taking the reins of the program in 2009, she has led the team to a 121-83 (.593) overall record, including an impressive 47-15 (.758) mark in the Little East Conference. KSC has captured five conference tournament titles and NCAA berths (2009, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016) as well as LEC regular season titles in 2010, 2014, and 2016 and the ECAC New England crown in 2010.
Clark set a program record for wins in 2012 when the Owls went 15-4 as she became the program's all-time leader in coaching victories. She picked up her 100th career win with a 16-13 triumph over Castleton University in 2017.
Many of her players have earned conference honors. Since 2009, KSC has produced 20 All-Conference players, including Jenna Bellano (LEC Rookie of the Year in 2014) and Brigid Casey (LEC Rookie of the Year in 2019) and Lauren Sawyer (2009), Lauren Brown (2011), Erin Taylor (2012), Christa Demovellan (2015), and Samantha Ballard (2016), who were each named Most Outstanding Player of the Tournament.
Clark, a native of Wayland, Mass., brought a strong playing and coaching background to her position. Prior to joining the KSC program, she spent two seasons as an assistant at her alma mater, Colby-Sawyer College. Clark was a three-time All-Conference defender for the Chargers. Clark also played four varsity seasons at Wayland (Mass.) High School where she was selected as a conference All-Star and defensive MVP as a senior.
Clark looks to continue the success she's had and establish the Owls as perennial contenders for the conference championship each season.
