Heather Holt, who recently completed her fourth season leading ODU’s lacrosse program after being named head coach, will be speaking to Norfolk Collegiate student-athletes about what it takes to be a collegiate athlete at our Athletic Orientation. Athletes, their parents and coaches are encouraged to attend this year’s Athletic Orientation Night with Heather Holt, head coach of Old Dominion University’s Lacrosse Program. Holt will be speaking on Tuesday, Sept. 1, at 7 p.m. in the Hackney Theater in the Meredith Center for the Arts.

Heather Holt, who recently completed her fourth season leading ODU’s lacrosse program after being named head coach, will be speaking to our student-athletes about what it takes to be a collegiate athlete. Before this, Holt served an assistant coach for 12 seasons.

In addition to Holt, the evening’s schedule also will include Collegiate’s annual athletic orientation during which athletic program information will be disseminated, as well as an introduction of our new athletic department.

The program completed its first season in the Atlantic-Sun Conference in 2015, a year in which Holt led ODU to a regular season runner-up title and its first conference tournament since 2009. Holt helped several student-athletes earn All-Conference honors, with three earning first-team accolades and one garnering second team laurels. Holt also was named the Atlantic-Sun Coach of the Year.

Holt played for the Lady Monarchs from 1992-95 and was as a member of the 1995 Colonial Athletic Association championship team and a four-year letterwinner in goal. She was named a Second Team All-CAA selection during her senior campaign and played in 43 career games for ODU.

Over her playing career, Holt earned spots on the Virginia Women's Lacrosse Association's (VWLA), Virginia II Regional Select Team and the United States Women's Lacrosse Association's (USWLA) South III National Team.

A native of Pennsylvania, Holt and her husband, David, reside in Norfolk with their three sons, Jackson, Parker and Reece. Jackson and Parker also are new to Collegiate.
