Debbie Windett
Debbie Windett Inducted Into the Delaware Lacrosse Hall of Fame
The Delaware Hall of Fame selection committee has picked Debbie Windett, head coach of the women's lacrosse program at Wesley College, was inducted in to its Hall of Fame on June 6th at the annual All Lacrosse Dinner in Dover, Delaware.

Debbie Windett, a long-time respected high school coach in Delaware, was named the head coach at Wesley College in January 2010. In her three years at the helm, Windett is already the winngest coach in program history.

After adding six victories to her name in 2011, Windett led the Wolverines to an 8-9 record in 2012 despite the loss of several key players. Led by Alyssa Prudente, who shattered nearly every single-season, single-game and career record in the process, Wesley got out to a 3-2 record by starting the season 3-0 at home. Windett got her program-record 19th victory in comeback fashion with a 14-13 victory at Mount St. Vincent on April 1, 2012 and Wesley finished the year with a 5-4 record at Scott D. Miller Stadium.

Her first team won eight games and finished with a .500 winning percentages, both firsts for the program since 2003. The eight wins were the second most in school history and the .500 winning percentage tied for the second best in the Wesley record book. The squad also set a school record by scoring 187 goals.

Windett Went to the Wolverines after building the program at Caesar Rodney High School in Camden, Delaware from the ground up. She started the program in 1998 and by 2004 had led the Riders to an appearance in the DIAA Championship game. Windett has also served on the DIAA Lacrosse State Tournament Committee since 1998 and took over as the chairperson in 2001. In 2008, she was named to the National Federation of High School Sports Lacrosse Rules Committee.

In addition to her success on the lacrosse field, Windett has also been one of Delaware's most successful high school field hockey coaches, winning her 300th game in 2008. She led Caesar Rodney to the DIAA Championship game in 2004, winning her fourth Henlopen Conference Coach of the Year Award in the process. Windett has also served on the DIAA Field Hockey State Tournament Committee since 1980. After moving to St. Thomas More to coach field hockey in 2007, she was selected as the Diamond State Conference Coach of the Year in 2008.

Prior to her time at Caesar Rodney, Windett served as the field hockey coach at Sussex Central High School, where she was chosen for the Hall of Fame in 1998.

Windett was also named to the Delaware Sports Hall of Fame and Museum Selection Committee in 2009. She is also active with the Special Olympics and the American Heart Association.
As student-athlete, Windett was a three-sport standout in field hockey, basketball and lacrosse at Bridgewater College in Virginia, gaining induction into the school's Hall of Fame in 2004. A winner of Bridgewater's Sportsmanship Award, she graduated in 1976 with a degree in Physical Education and Driver's Education.
