Nancy Webber enters her first season as Southern Virginia University's head women's lacrosse coach.
Having coached since 1999, Webber (formerly Haws) has found tremendous success throughout her career with nearly 150 wins and four high school All-Americans to her credit. Six of her former athletes went on to play at the NCAA Division I level and multiple have become coaches themselves.
Webber comes to Southern Virginia by way of Western Albemarle High School in Crozet, Virginia, where she totaled 101 wins as the head coach from 2007-13 and was named a Virginia District Coach of the Year five times and Region Coach of the Year four seasons. The Warriors advanced to the state AAA quarterfinals for eight consecutive seasons during that span, including an appearance to the semifinals round in 2012 and a state championship in 2010. Following the 2010 title season, Webber became the only AA coach to win a AAA championship in state history.
She presently coaches the Seminole Select girls travel team and coached the CV lacrosse club team from 2011-12. In addition, Webber coached the Blue Ridge club team based in Charlottesville from 2005-11 and has helped develop and supervise the YMCA girls youth league since 2007.
Prior to Western Albemarle, Webber served as head coach of the girls lacrosse program at The Waterford School in Sandy, Utah, from 1999-2004. She had an immediate impact on the program, helping the Ravens to a state runner-up finish in 1999 and again in 2002. She was named the Utah State Coach of the Year in 1999 after leading the inaugural Raven program to its second-place finish.
Outside of coaching, Webber serves on the USLacrosse women's game committee and has been the coaches' subcommittee chair since 2010. A member of the USLacrosse volunteer board from 2004-06, she has a USLacrosse coaching certificate at the Level 1 course and class, Level 2 course and Level 3 course and class.
Webber resides in Crozet, Virginia, with her daughter, Julia, and son, Joshua. Her eldest daughter, Jordan Trejo, is an All-American women's lacrosse player at BYU and resides in Provo, Utah, with her husband, Chase. Nancy's eldest son, Justin, will be a freshman on the men's lacrosse team at BYU this fall.
Jordan Sorensen is an assistant women’s lacrosse coach and admissions system administrator at Southern Virginia University. The 2015 season will mark his second season as an assistant coach of the women's lacrosse program and third year overall after serving as the team's head coach in 2014.
As a scholar-athlete at Southern Virginia, Sorensen played goalie for the men’s lacrosse team from 2005-07 and 2009-11, taking time between his sophomore and junior campaigns to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Bilbao, Spain. He was a three-time team captain for the Knights and finished his career as the program’s all-time leader in both total saves and save percentage.
Sorensen's coaching career began in 2006 as an assistant coach at his alma mater Poway High School. Following his experience at Poway, he served as an assistant lacrosse coach at Southern Virginia for both the men’s and women’s programs in 2006 while still a student attending the university. After graduating from Southern Virginia in 2011 with a degree in Business Management and Leadership, Sorensen resumed his role as assistant lacrosse coach for the men's and women's teams.
Jordan and his wife, Jessica, and daughter reside in Lexington, Va.
