After five seasons as William & Mary's head coach, Christine Halfpenny took over the reins of Notre Dame women's lacrosse program in 2011.
Originally hailing from Latham, NY, Coach Halfpenny was a four year lacrosse letter winner at Virginia Tech. Prior to William & Mary, she was the top assistant coach at Duke. As Notre Dame vice president and athletics director Jack Swarbrick stated when Coach Halfpenny was announced, "Chris brings to Notre Dame the experiences of having been involved with multiple programs and teams that have been to the NCAA final four, won conference titles and produced All-Americans."

Christine Halfpenny - Head Coach, University of Notre Dame
Christine Halfpenny enters her sixth season as head coach of the Notre Dame women's lacrosse program in 2017 after leading the Irish to the NCAA Quarterfinals for the first time since 2009. The postseason run marked the fifth consecutive time the Irish have competed in the NCAA Championship -- the first time in school history that Notre Dame has reached the NCAAs in at least four straight years. Halfpenny came to Notre Dame from William & Mary, where her teams achieved four straight 10-win seasons and a pair of regular-season conference titles over her final four seasons with the program. Halfpenny's Tribe squads captured Colonial Athletic Association regular-season titles in both 2008 and 2009 - and she merited CAA coach-of-the-year honors in 2008. Her teams combined for a 20-8 record in league play (including four straight conference tournament bids) - as William & Mary reached double digits in victories each of the last four seasons (10-7 in 2011 and 2009, 10-8 in 2010, 10-9 in 2008). Those four consecutive 10-win seasons matched the best previous stretch in program history. A four-year letter-winner in women's lacrosse at Virginia Tech, Halfpenny started on the 1999 Hokie team that won the Atlantic 10 Conference championship, finished 11-6 and achieved a program-first top-20 ranking. She received the coaches award that year and was a two-time member of the athletic director's honor roll (1998, 1999). She graduated in 1999 with a degree in health and physical education.
