Emily Beach is in her third season as the assistant coach with Georgetown Field Hockey. With the Hoyas, Beach's primary duties are recruiting and developing the team's defense.
Prior to Georgetown, Beach helped Maryland win the 2006 National Championship as a volunteer assistant coach. The former All-American helped the Terrapins to the 2005 NCAA and ACC Championship titles as a player.
In her two years with the Terps in 2004 and 2005, Beach was a starter in every game in the backfield. Both seasons, the defense was ranked in the top 15 in the nation in goals against average, including boasting the second-best average in the country in 2005 (1.01). In 2004, she earned second team Mid-Atlantic All-Region honors before being named first team All-American as a senior in 2005. In her final campaign, she was selected the team's captain and also went on to earn All-ACC honors and NCAA All-Tournament nods.
A native of Bethesda, Md., Beach began her collegiate playing career at the University of Virginia in 2001 and 2002 before transferring to Maryland. In high school, she led Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School to four-straight state titles and was named Washington Post and Montgomery Journal Player of the Year.
Beach graduated from Maryland in the spring of 2006 and earned her degree in public and community health.
