Law and the Syracuse coaching staff has elevated the Syracuse field hockey program to historic levels of success.

This is highlighted by the team's first NCAA Championship in program history in 2015.

A native of Scotland, Law joined the Orange as a highly-accomplished player and coach. In his tenure with the Syracuse staff, Law has helped lead the Orange to one of the NCAA Tournament's four national seeds each season, which enters 2017 as the longest active streak nationally.

Syracuse also has the best record in ACC play - widely considered the nation's best and most competitive conference - among the seven member schools since Syracuse joined the league in Law's first season.

Law, who is responsible for video analysis and technical development of the student-athletes has helped develop some of the nation's most talented players and has helped both current student-athletes and alums reach the international level.

The 2016 season saw 'Cuse once again earn one of the nation's top-four seeds in the NCAA Tournament and the subsequent home game for the first round. Syracuse finished the regular season with a 15-4 overall record and a 4-2 mark in ACC play to earn the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament. SU eventually fell to UConn in the NCAA Quarterfinal round, snapping a streak of back-to-back title game appearances.

The 2015 season was a historic one for 'Cuse in more ways than just the NCAA Championship run. Syracuse went a perfect 16-0 in the regular season. The mark was just the 10th program in Syracuse athletics' history, and the first team in 25 seasons to run the table in the regular season. After the stellar regular season, the No. 1 ranked Orange swept the ACC postseason honors, becoming the first team since North Carolina in 1994 to achieve the feat.

After earning the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, Law led the Orange past UMass and Princeton at J.S. Coyne Stadium to get to the NCAA Semifinals for the second-straight season, setting up a rematch of the 2014 NCAA title game with UConn. Syracuse jumped out to an early lead and dispatched the Huskies to return to the final.

The Orange took on North Carolina - the only team to beat Syracuse in 2015, in overtime of the ACC Championship game - where Syracuse once again came out firing and defeated the Tar Heels 4-2 to win the championship.

In 2014, Law and the Syracuse field hockey team advanced to its first-ever NCAA Tournament final.
