Hannah Rudloff begins her fourth season at the helm of the Drexel women’s lacrosse team in 2016-17. She was named the head women's lacrosse coach in July of 2013 after dedicating three seasons as an assistant coach. From 2010 to 2013, Rudloff worked extensively with the Dragons' attack unit.
Rudloff has coached five All-CAA performers and an IWLCA All-Region honoree during her tenure as the Dragons’ head coach, and also mentored 2014 Mary Semanik Award winner Amanda Norcini.
Under Rudloff’s leadership during her time as an assistant, the women’s lacrosse team made significant strides in the Colonial Athletic Association. The Dragons made the 2011 CAA Championship tournament for the first-time in program history and advanced to post-season play again in 2012 and 2013 after tallying the program’s most CAA wins. In 2016 they again advanced to the CAA tournament after beating conference foe Hofstra for the first time in 23 meetings.
Prior to arriving at Drexel, Rudloff served as the assistant coach at Marist for the 2010 season for both the offensive and defensive units. She helped the Red Foxes defeat Fairfield in the MAAC Championship Final to earn the program’s first NCAA Tournament berth.
Rudloff graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2009 where she helped the Quakers to three undefeated Ivy League seasons. Rudloff and the Quakers advanced to the NCAA Final Four in each of her final three seasons and reached the NCAA championship game in her junior season. She attended nearby West Chester East High School where she was a First Team All-America selection in 2005.
