Adriane Lapsley, a former Georgia Tech track & field all-American, was named assistant women’s track & field coach, announced by head coach Alan Drosky on Friday afternoon. The former standout will oversee the Yellow Jacket sprints and intermediate hurdles, coordinate training of the combined events, handle all aspects of recruiting for those events and various administrative functions.
During her time on the Flats, Lapsley was one of the track & field programs most versatile and accomplished performers, competing in the sprints and hurdles, both the long and triple jump, as well as on many relays.
A 2006 graduate of Georgia Tech, she earned all-America honors three times, once in the 60m indoors and twice in the 4x100m relay. She was an ACC Champion six times, twice each in the 60m, 100m, and 4x100m relay; and earned all-ACC honors a total of nine times. Currently she holds school records in the 55m indoors, as well as the 4x100m, 4x200m, and Shuttle Hurdle relays. In addition, she served as the women’s track & field representative for the GTAA Student-Athlete Advisory Board.
“We are excited about Coach Lapsley continuing our tradition of extraordinary assistant coaches,” said Drosky. “She brings great knowledge of her events, of our program, of our school; fantastic working relationships with all of our coaches and support staff; and a tremendous attitude and passion to help our program be successful at the highest levels.”
