About Our Coaches

Jesse Aguglia

Jessie Aguglia is the Head Women's Lacrosse Coach at Gardner-Webb University.

Gardner-Webb lacrosse experienced a boost under Aguglia, setting a single-season wins mark in 2019 and posting the program's first winning record in Ernest W. Spangler Stadium. The Runnin' Bulldogs also experienced their first three-game win streak in mid-March with wins over Wofford, Delaware State, and Butler.

Aguglia mentored three All-Big South Conference second-team selections in Talen Francis, Abby Hanscom and Moninque Martin in 2019. Hanscom, a three-time All-Big South choice, set the GWU single-season mark with 42 goals and added 14 assists to pace the squad. She ranked in the top-5 in both goals and total points among Big South scorers.

Aguglia took over the program following a stint as an assistant coach with the Runnin' Bulldogs. She joined the Gardner-Webb program from NCAA Division II UVA-Wise, where she served as an assistant coach in 2016. With Aguglia’s help, the Cavaliers posted an 11-5 overall record and a 4-2 mark in Mountain East play.

Prior to her arrival at UVA-Wise, Aguglia served as the head varsity coach at Boiling Springs High School in Boiling Springs, S.C. during their inaugural season.

Aguglia spent her collegiate career at nearby Limestone College, where she helped the Saints to four consecutive Conference Carolinas Tournament championships, four NCAA Tournament appearances, and two berths in the national championship game in 2011 and 2013.

The Webster, N.Y. native made 77 appearances over the course of her four-year career, totaling 66 goals, 11 assists, and 77 points. She also tallied 106 ground balls, 52 draw controls and caused 36 turnovers.

An outstanding student as well, Aguglia earned induction in both the National College Athletics Honor Society and the History Honor Society in addition to a pair of President’s Awards at Limestone in 2011 and 2013.

My daughter never felt too confident about her game, but my daughter was coached by national champions, I think she felt really inspired by them. I have noticed a big change in her attitude towards her game which makes me really happy to see

It was great to see what a college campus felt like, especially sleeping in a college dorm and having lots of time spent on improving skills.
