Wood, a native of Paoli, Pa., had a standout career at Drexel before playing and coaching in Europe as part of the Global Players Student Athlete Exchange program.
“We are extremely excited to have Charlotte join our program,” Adams said. “Charlotte is very passionate about lacrosse and the student-athlete experience. These qualities will make her a seamless fit with our staff and the goals of our program.”
The Dragons’ first-ever player to be named to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List, Wood was among the team’s top-three scoring leaders all four years, including leading Drexel in both goals and points as a junior and senior. She concluded her career with 142 goals and 168 points, while she was also named to the CAA’s All-Rookie Team in 2009 and to the league’s second team as a junior.
In addition to playing and coaching for the Phantastix Lacrosse Club in Philadelphia, Wood has spent time traveling Europe, coaching throughout Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic. She has also worked as a graduate assistant in the ACHIEVE Center at Drexel, where she assisted in academic advising and life skills for the Dragons’ student-athletes.
A 2012 graduate with a degree in sport management, Wood earned her Master’s degree in higher education from Drexel in 2014.
