McIntyre joins the Green Terror staff after a four-year, two-sport playing career at Centennial Conference-rival Gettysburg.

McIntyre was a goalkeeper for the Bullets' women's lacrosse team, which won the 2011 NCAA Championship. Playing alongside an all-conference teammate in goal each year, McIntyre played in 34 games with 12 starts. In nearly 886 minutes between the pipes, she allowed 85 goals and made 104 saves. Her 5.76 career goals-against average in second all-time in program history while her .550 save percentage is 11th all-time. She recorded a perfect 12-0 record in cage, including a 7-0 mark in 2011. During her tenure, the team went 70-16, was the CC runner-up and appeared in the NCAA tournament each year. She was part of three teams that reached championship weekend, culminating with the national title last spring.

On the field hockey field, she played in 44 games with 37 starts in the midfield. A 2010 captain, she led the team with seven defensive saves a year ago. During her time, the team posted a 47-27 record, including a 30-10 mark in conference play and advancing to the conference playoffs all four years. The team was nationally ranked during all four of her seasons.

Off the field, McIntyre was also actively involved in other aspects of the athletics department while a student at Gettysburg. She was president of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee as a senior. Among her greatest achievements was as one of the principal founders of Adams County Youth Sports Day, which hosted 49 at-risk youths from the community to engage in athletics with 60 student-athletes.

Prior to her presidency of SAAC, she chaired the sportsmanship committee and was a member all four years, including attending the CC SAAC conference in 2008 and the NCAA Diversity Training Workshop in 2010. She also attended the Snell-Shillingford Coaching Symposium last January.

She also worked in the department's equipment room and campus recretation office and assisted with various field hockey and lacrosse camps.

McIntyre earned her bachelor of arts in Psychology in May.
