First Season


Theresa "Tee" Ladouceur enters her second season on the Denver staff after joining prior to the start of the 2018 season.

In her first season overseeing the Pioneer offense, Ladouceur guided an attack that saw several players achieve success and earn conference and national recognition for their play on the field.

Julia Feiss and Kendra Lanuza were each named BIG EAST Attacker of the Week once, and newcomer Quintin Hoch-Bullen twice earned BIG EAST Freshman of the Week honors. Hoch-Bullen also went on to win BIG EAST Co-Freshman of the Year for her stats, becoming the first Denver player since 2015 (Nicole Martindale) to earn a major conference award.  Feiss also earned All-BIG EAST first team and Hoch-Bullen All-BIG EAST second team distinction.  To round out the awards for the Denver attackers, Feiss made the IWLCA West/Midwest Region Second Team. 

Nationally, Lanuza was ranked in assists and assists per game; Hoch-Bullen was nationally ranked in assists, free-position goals per game, goals, points and shot percentage, and Feiss was nationally ranked in free-position goals per game, free-position percentage, goals, goals per game, points, shots per game and shots on goal per game. 

As a team, DU averaged 11.90 goals and 5.55 assists a game, while taking 30.15 shots a game and 21 shots on goal per contest.  The Pioneers outscored their opponents 238-203 and were 11-1 when recording more shots on goal in a game. 

The Pioneers scored 10-plus goals 14 times in 2018, going 13-1, and scored 14 or more goals seven times, going a perfect 7-0 in such instances.  The offense surpassed the 20-goal mark against Niagara on March 10, where Feiss tied the school record with eight goals, and almost reached the 20-goal mark in the NCAA Tournament first round versus High Point. 

Denver was 10-0 when leading at the half and 7-1 when they scored first. 

At the time of Ladouceur's hire, head coach Liza Kelly said, "I am beyond excited for Tee to join the Pioneer Family! I have enjoyed competing against her for the past two years and I am incredibly impressed with her offensive strategies and coaching style. I know Tee is the right coach to help this program become an NCAA fixture."

No stranger to the University of Denver and the women's lacrosse program, Ladouceur (pronounced "LAD-uh-SIR") previously served as the head coach at UC Davis for the past two seasons, where, in her first season, led the Aggies to their first conference tournament appearance since 2010.  Under her leadership, two players earned All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation recognition, and eight were named MPSF All-Academic, which tied a program best.

"I'd really like to thank Liza Kelly for giving me the opportunity to be a part of a great institution and athletics program with such an astounding lacrosse culture," said Ladouceur. "I have a lot of respect for Coach Kelly and her vision for the program.  I can't wait to get started with her and (assistant coach) Hannah (Hook) to help DU make strides within the BIG EAST and beyond."

Prior to her time in Davis, Ladouceur coached at Albany from 2013 to 2015, overseeing the offense.  In her role with the Great Danes, she mentored two America East Offensive Players of the Year, one conference Player of the Year and five first-team all-conference midfielders and attackers.

She also served as the head coach at Bethlehem Central High School, her alma mater, for one season, and was an assistant coach/acting head coach at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).

Ladouceur played attack collegiately at Syracuse University, where she graduated in 2011 with a bachelor of science degree. In her three-year career with the Orange, she scored 130 goals with 112 assists in 68 games, adding 45 ground balls, 34 draw controls and 36 caused turnovers. In her senior year, she led the team in goals (38) and ranked second in scoring with 57 points. She made the IWLCA All-America Third Team and All-Northeast Region first team in 2010 and was one of just 48 players named to the Tewaaraton Award List in 2011. Ladouceur also garnered All-BIG EAST distinction in each of her junior and senior years. She began her collegiate career at Albany, where she ranked second on the team in goals, points and caused turnovers, and was twice named America East Rookie of the Week in 2008.

Her primary role with the Pioneers will be as an offensive coordinator.
