Former UMass standout Tracey Drown joined the Minutewomen as assistant coach in August of 2004. Drown, who was a Third-Team All-American in 2004, led UMass with 47 goals and 17 assists in her final season. The Nashua, N.H., native was also a First-Team All-Atlantic 10 and All-Region selection during her career.
"I am thrilled to have Tracey on the staff," said Bolduc. "She understands the program and brings a wealth of experience. She has a high energy and passion for the game that carries over to the players and makes us that much better."
Drown, whose 47 goals as a senior were the second-most in a UMass single-season, tallied 81 points in her career. She had 61 goals and 20 assists in three seasons with the Minutewomen. She played her freshman year at Towson University and was named to the America East All-Rookie Team. Drown excelled in the classroom as well being named to the UMass Athletic Director's and Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Rolls every semester.
The Minutewomen were 6-10 during her senior year and advanced to the semifinals of the Atlantic 10 Tournament. Drown led the team with a hat trick in her final game, a 13-9 loss to Temple in the A-10 Tournament. In 2004, Drown scored at least one goal in every game except the season-opener. She tallied multiple goals 13 times, including nine games of three-plus scores.
Drown earned her degree in legal studies and political science in 2004.
A graduate of Nashua High School, she earned All-American honors in 2000 and was a three-time All-New Hampshire selection. Drown was joined at Nashua HS by former Minutewoman Beth Rogers and current senior Kerri Connerty. Her younger sister, Holly, is currently a freshman on the team.
