USA Lacrosse Magazine – “With a career coaching record of 321–123 (.723), Chris Paradis molded Amherst College Women’s Lacrosse into one of the most successful teams in the nation,” says an article announcing that Paradis is one of three coaches chosen to be inducted into the IWLCA Hall of Fame later this year.
“Her 321 wins ranks her in the top ten all-time in NCAA Division III,” the article continues. “Overall, Paradis led Amherst to a 27-13 (.675) record in 14 trips to the NCAA tournament. Paradis, who competed for the United States national team in the World Cup, also coached field hockey at Amherst ….” She retired last year after nearly three decades at the College.
The IWLCA Hall of Fame was established in May 2017 and will induct its sixth annual cohort at a ceremony in St. Petersburg, Fla., in November 2023. In addition to Paradis, the inductees will include current Northwestern University head coach Kelly Amonte Hiller and former Williams College coach Chris Mason.
