Camilla Hill '11 enters her third season on the sidelines this fall, after helping guide the Tribe to back-to-back CAA Tournaments in 2013 and 2014.  Hill is primarily responsible for the coaching of W&M's goalkeepers, and has general duties assisting with every aspect of the Tribe's nationally recognized program.

Over the last two years, W&M has won 15 games and recorded five shutouts behind Hill's goalkeepers, averaging 2.6 goals allowed and a .641 save percentage.  After squeaking into the CAA Tournament in 2013, the Tribe's defense stepped up in 2014 and led the Green and Gold into the final day of the season battling for the regular-season title.  Meredith Savage has seen the most playing time in that stretch, appearing in 31 of 38 games with a 2.88 GAA and 102 saves.  In 2014, she played every minute for W&M, including a 12-save performance against Virginia.

Hill rejoined her alma mater in the fall of 2013 after completing graduate studies at VCU, and with a wealth of coaching experience already.  She was a volunteer with the Tribe program in 2012, working with the goalkeepers, and co-founded the Priority Goalkeeping Academy in 2012 as well to promote the development of youth and high school goalkeeping.  Hill has also helped coach at W&M's Colonial Field Hockey Camp for the past eight years, and has another eight years of certified coaching experience through the U.S. Field Hockey Association.

Off the field, Hill spent the 2012-13 school year as a graduate assistant focused on LGBT and Women's Services in VCU's Office of Multicultural Student Affairs.  Her duties and accomplishments included developing and facilitating diversity training programs for numerous campus offices and organizations, including Sorority and Fraternity Life, the VCU Police Department, and all 130 Resident Assistants and 10 Hall Directors in VCU's Residential Life and Housing department.  Hill also advised numerous students and student organizations, and helped develop and schedule over 30 events during LGBT and Women's History month.  In the spring, she also interned in the Office for Student Organization Development, providing individual and group counseling for student organization leaders as well as advising the Student Activities Programming Board.

Hill has also completed numerous research projects and publications, including a piece in the Winter 2013 issue of NCAA Champion magazine titled "No Place for Homophobia in Athletics".  She is a member of the American Counseling Association and the Virginia Counseling Association, and was inducted into the international counseling honor society, Chi Sigma Iota.  Since 2000, Hill has been involved with the Maasai American Organization, an NGO that both funds and performs service projects in Losho, Kenya, focusing on community health, development, and women's and children's education projects.

Hill was a member of the Tribe field hockey program as an athlete for five years, and was named to the NFHCA All-Academic Squad three times.  She ranks sixth in Tribe history with 5.53 saves per game and seventh with 238 total saves, while making 35 starts (10th) and 43 appearances (9th) between the pipes.  Hill graduated from W&M in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in sociology, and in 2013 she added a M.Ed. in college student development and counseling from VCU.  She married her wife, Samantha (a student affairs professional at VCU), in May of 2015 and the couple now reside in Richmond.
