Jill Murphy Myers

Jill began playing field hockey as a freshman at Hershey High School in Hershey, PA when her family was relocated and she wanted to meet some girls before school started. She fell in love with the sport, and began training year-round with the East Coast Field Hockey Club. She was extremely fortunate to have played for such a prestigious high school program for two years, but her family was relocated again, this time to Williamsburg, VA. From there, she was recruited to the University of Richmond and accepted an athletic scholarship to play for their Division 1 program. Her senior year, in 2002, she captained the first Richmond team to ever win a conference championship and make an appearance at the NCAA tournament. She finished that season 2nd in the country in assists and set the school record for most assists in a season and most career assists as well. After graduating in 2003 with a BS in Biology and a minor in Education, the opportunity to stay on and be an assistant coach of her former team presented itself and she gladly accepted. She assisted her former coach, Ange Bradley, for three years from 2003-2006, and under their tutelage, the team won three Atlantic-10 Championships and never lost a conference game (and in that time, also recruited and coached Alex McMahan!). She moved back to Pennsylvania in 2006 and taught Biology for five years at Downingtown East High School before deciding to resign and be home with her three kids, while continuing to coach at the youth level for Horizon Field Hockey Club. In 2014, Alex approached her with the opportunity to coach for the club she would be soon starting, “Main Line Mayhem”. Jill has been with Alex ever since, coaching all age levels. Most recently, in 2019, Jill was incredibly honored to have been inducted into the University of Richmond Athletics Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach.
