The women’s lacrosse head coach, Kammie Towey, was recently selected to be inducted into her alumni’s athletic Hall of Fame at Pfeiffer University. She is one of only two female lacrosse players to ever be recognized as Pfieffer hall of famers.

“I am completely overjoyed,” said Coach Towey, honored that she had received such great news.

In her collegiate career, known by her maiden name, Studley, Kammie Towey was considered one of the best goalies in team history.

She was able to save a total of 563 balls from whipping past her into the goal. She ended with a cumulative .585 save percentage.

Coach Towey owns the women’s lacrosse program record with 168 saves in 2004. She also holds a second all-time high of a .617 save percentage in 2003.

Leading her team to an 11-4 overall record in her season, she owns three of five best single season marks for save percentage.

2004 was a great year for Coach Towey; she was named First Team All American and First Team All-Conference. She made a huge impact at the university, also bringing her skills here to Wilkes to benefit the young student athletes that she is coaching.

Towey’s induction into the Pfeiffer Hall of Fame will take place in during the Wilke’s Homecoming weekend, September 29th.
