Position: Assistant Coach
A 2006 graduate of UNH with a B.A. in Zoology, Blanchette returns to the Bears' coaching staff for her second season after a successful lacrosse career with the Wildcats. A four-year starter in the midfield, Blanchette earned Second Team Regional All-American honors following her senior year and was also selected to play in the North/South Senior All-Star game. Blanchette was named to the America East All-Rookie Team as a freshman in 2003 and First Team All-America East as a senior in 2006, while also earning a spot on the 2006 America East All-Tournament Team.

"Kristin is a great fit for Brown and our student-athletes," commented McDonald. "She brings a tremendous amount of energy and excitement to the program. As a former collegiate standout and a former player on the US Developmental Squad, Kristin knows what it takes to compete at the highest level and understands the demands of being a student-athlete."

A former member of the United States Developmental Team (2005-2007), Blanchette works with the Bears' attack, while also coordinating team travel, gear, and other team responsibilities. Last season, Blanchette coached 2007 All-Ivy honorees Jadie DeTolla '08, who had her top offensive output of her career last year, and Molly McCarthy '10.

She has coached at several camps and clinics across the country, including US Lacrosse National Team Clinics, The UNH Lacrosse Camp (2002-2006), the Kelly Amonte Lacrosse Camp (2004-2006), and the Princeton Lacrosse Elite and Tiger Camp (2006). Blanchette continues to serve as a Director for Infinity Camps and also ran the KB15 Skills Camp last summer.
