Rachel Palumbo

Palumbo was named the head field hockey coach at Catholic University on March 26, 2020. During her first season she led the Cardinals to the Landmark Conference Championship game by defeating top-seeded Moravian in overtime. This makes the Cardinals just the third team in the 14 year tournament history to upset the #1 seed as the #4 seed.

Palumbo came to Catholic after two seasons as an assistant coach at Middlebury where she won back-to-back National Championships in 2018 and 2019. Under Katharine DeLorenzo, she helped guide the Panthers to a school record 21 wins each year and a 42-2 overall record, including a mark of 18-2 in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). Middlebury was also recognized as the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) National Coaching Staff of the Year twice and won two NESCAC championships.

Palumbo, who received her USA Field Hockey Level II Accreditation in Spring 2019, served as the recruiting coordinator for the Panthers who had six All-America, eight all-region and eight All-NESCAC selections the last two seasons. Middlebury also boasted the 2019 NESCAC Rookie of the Year, Katie George, who led the team with 13 goals and 29 points this season.

In November 2018, Palumbo joined DeLorenzo on a community service trip to Jharkhand, India where she participated in a week-long field hockey residential program for young women ages 14-17 known as the East India Field Hockey Project.

Palumbo spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons as a graduate assistant coach at Salisbury under Dawn Chamberlin. The Sea Gulls posted a record of 30-7 during her two seasons, advancing to the national semifinals of the NCAA Division III Field Hockey Championship and winning a Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) in 2016. The team also finished the 2016 season ranked at No. 2 in the NFHCA Coaches Poll.

As a player, Palumbo appeared in 68 games and made 47 starts as a defensive midfielder at Division I James Madison. She scored two game-winning, overtime goals for the Dukes who made three Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Field Hockey Championship appearances, advancing to the finals in 2014.

Palumbo began her coaching career as an assistant coach at Perkiomen Valley High School in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. While there, she served as the head coach for the USA Field Hockey Futures Program Site 5Y and as a coach for X-Calibur Elite Indoor Field Hockey Club. While at Salisbury, she coached for the Shore Byrds Field Hockey Club.

Palumbo received her bachelor's degree in kinesiology and exercise science with a minor in coaching education from James Madison in 2015 before earning a master's in postsecondary education from Salisbury in May 2018.
