- FOR THE STUDENTS
A veteran of collegiate lacrosse, as a player and a coach, and a three-time member of Canadian World Cup teams, Kylee White brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the sidelines at Loyola.
Now in her second season with the Greyhounds, White coaches a Loyola defense that has had a long-storied tradition of success.
Continuing that Greyhounds tradition of solid defensive play in her first season at Loyola, White guided the defense to a nation-leading 13.47 caused turnovers per game. The Greyhounds hounded the opposition en route to its first winning season in four years and held opponents to under ten goals in nearly half of their games.
Prior to coming to Loyola, White returned to her alma mater at Ohio State in 2008, where she served in the same capacity she does now. In her only season as an assistant with the Buckeyes, she helped OSU to a 10-8 record, and under her guidance, the team finished 11th nationally in ground balls per game.
She returned to Columbus after three seasons on the staff at Stanford where she helped the Cardinal to three Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Championships. Stanford became the first program west of the Mississippi to earn a bid to the NCAA Division I Championships.
White was also an assistant coach of Canada's U-19 team that finished fourth in the 2007 World Championships. Four of the players White coached were named to the All-World Team after the competition.
A native of London, Ontario, Canada, White has played in three IFWLA World Cups for her native country. In 2001 and 2005, she helped the Canadians to a pair of fourth-place finishes. This past summer, White, along with fellow assistant coach Dana Dobbie, helped the Canadians to its first bronze medal in 27 years at the 2009 World Cup.
In the 2005 tournament, White ranked in the top five for caused turnovers per game and was nominated for the All-World team.
A four-year letterwinner at Ohio State, White (then Kylee Reade) was a four-time Ohio State Scholar-Athlete selection and was honored as an Academic All-Big Ten performer on three occasions.
She helped the 2002 Buckeyes squad to an 11-5 mark and second-place finish in the American Lacrosse Conference. As a junior in 2001, White caused 28 turnovers, and entering the 2007 season her 60 career caused turnovers and 123 ground balls were ranked sixth on the all-time Ohio State lists.
White was a two-year member of the Ohio State Student-Athlete Advisory Board, and in addition to playing lacrosse, she was a standout ice hockey player. She served as co-captain of the inaugural Ohio State women's varsity ice hockey team in 1999-2000.
White, who earned her bachelor of science degree in education in 2002, is married to Todd White.
