Brittney Orashen enters her second season as an assistant coach with the Jacksonville women's lacrosse team in 2017.
Orashen, a former midfielder with the Dolphins, made the transition from player to coach and entered the role with more experience than any prior coach in JU history. She returned to her alma mater as the top assistant, backed by five years of knowledge of the program’s system which included four ASUN Conference championship titles.
Orashen has been a part of numerous clinics and clubs throughout the east and has been an instrumental role model for girls wanting to learn the sport. The Flemington, N.J., native and T3 Lacrosse alumnus has been active as a club coach with nationally regarded programs like T3 (New Jersey) and LaxManiax (Florida). She has also helped coach the Devils Lacrosse (New Jersey) club and Immaculata High School, and has been a regular on the college camp circuit, working with the seven-time NCAA champion Northwestern and Jacksonville University.
As one of the top two-way midfielders in women’s lacrosse, she earned First Team MidMajor Lacrosse All-American honors her senior season. In addition to being crowned a two-time Atlantic Sun Defensive Player of the Year, she was tabbed on the A-Sun All-Conference Team and All-Tournament Team four times. She left her senior campaign ranked among the career leaders in caused turnovers and draw controls for all NCAA performers. She is also Jacksonville’s all-time leader in ground balls and caused turnovers and is second all-time in draw controls. Additionally, she scored more than 100 career goals, and was named a 'Break Out Performer' for her four-goal game against #14 Denver in the NCAA playoffs as a junior.
Orashen earned her Bachelor of Science from the Davis College of Business in 2014 at JU and has subsequently earned her Master's of Business Administration from the college's nationally ranked program in 2015.
