Everything has come full circle for Hofstra women’s lacrosse coach and West Babylon, N.Y. native Shannon Smith.

Along with Team USA she beat her alma mater Northwestern, 16-9, on Sunday afternoon in the 2013 Champion Challenge. She also scored five goals in a 20-9 victory over England and Team USA beat Syracuse, 19-11.
Smith, had three goals for Team USA in the win, is in her first season of coaching at Hofstra.

She was a three-time first-team IWLCA All-American at Northwestern, helping the Wildcats win three NCAA championships during her four-year career. Smith won the 2011 Tewaaraton Award as the best player in the nation.

While setting New York high school career records for points (729) and goals (505) at Long Island’s West Babylon, Smith helped Team USA win the 2007 FIL U19 women’s world championship.

Hofstra assistant Katie Hertsch is on Team USA as well.
