Clara Bissell enters her first season as assistant coach for the Transylvania field hockey team for the 2019 season.
Bissell, who currently is in her second season with the Transylvania women’s lacrosse program, will also serve as the lead assistant coach for the Pioneers field hockey team ahead of the 2019 season.
“I am very excited to have Clara joining us for this season,” commented Hastings. “I’ve seen the success she’s helped contribute to the Transy women’s lacrosse team and I am confident her coaching experience and expertise will translate onto the field hockey pitch as well.”
"It's so exciting to be joining Coach Hastings in continuing to build the culture and legacy of Transylvania field hockey,” added Bissell. “Our Pioneers are incredible students of character and athletic talent, and I can't wait to get started with this program."
In her first season with the Transylvania women’s lacrosse team, Bissell helped elevate the Pioneers to their second consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance along with their second straight conference regular-season and tournament championships.
Bissell will now aim to apply her coaching successes to the Pioneers’ field hockey team in the fall season along with her continuing duties as the assistant coach for the Transylvania women’s lacrosse program.
