EMMITSBURG, Md. (June 7, 2023) – Mount St. Mary’s women’s rugby announces the appointment of Maggie Myles to the team’s head coaching position ahead of the 2023-24 season. A native of Emmitsburg, Maryland and graduate of nearby Catoctin High School, Myles becomes the third head coach in program history.
A member of staff for the inaugural season of 2017-18, she returns to Emmitsburg after a stint with Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Royals went a perfect 9-0 during the varsity 15’s season on the way to their first-ever NIRA DII Championship, defeating Davenport in overtime. Along with coaching, Myles worked in the areas of compliance, recruiting and fundraising.
Many of the roots planted as a coach began at Mount St. Mary’s, which served as her first foray in the college ranks. Responsible for several aspects of the upstart program, she was on staff for the team’s first victory – a 39-0 shutout of The Citadel in a 7’s game on March 31, 2018.
In between stops, there were international opportunities developing skills for rugby players in both Ireland and Fiji. Myles worked as a support instructor with Railway Union and a camp coach for Scion Academy.
As a collegiate player, Myles was a two-time NIRA All-American for the Quinnipiac Bobcats. A veteran of 42 matches, she was a member of national championship teams in 2015 and 2016 under the director of head coach Becky Carlson.
The 2023 rugby 15’s season begins in September.
