Dawn Chamberlin is the most successful field hockey coach in Salisbury University history and is one of the all-time greats in Division III.

Chamberlin was inducted into the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) Hall of Fame on January 17, 2009, as one of the six honorees in the Class of 2008.

2018 was another highly successful season for Chamberlin and the Sea Gulls, who earned the program's 21st CAC championship and a 25th consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament. On October 31, 2018, Chamberlin earned her 500th career victory, moving up to 5th all-time in the Division III field hockey coaching record books. In addition, Chamberlin was named CAC Coach of the Year for the 17th time, and Tara Flavin and Jillian Hughes were named CAC Rookie of the Year and CAC Player of the Year, respectively.

In 2017, Chamberlin led the Sea Gulls to a 12-win campaign and the program's 24th consecutive trip to the NCAA tournament. The Sea Gulls had a pair of All-Americans and six players named to the All-Capital Athletic Conference teams, including senior Tressie Windsor being named the CAC's Player of the Year. It marked the first time in league history that a goalkeeper was named the field hockey Player of the Year.

In 2016, Chamberlin led the team back to the national championship weekend, where Salisbury fell in the national semifinals. The Sea Gulls went 18-2, the eighth 18-plus win season for Chamberlin. Salisbury picked up six all-conference picks, including Hannah Miller being named the Player of the Year, which two Sea Gulls were named All-Americans.

During the 2015 season, Salisbury won the Capital Athletic Conference championship for the third consecutive year. Four Sea Gulls were named to the All-Region teams with two on the first team.

In 2014, the Sea Gulls advanced to the national championship weekend for the second-straight year. Salisbury had two players named All-Americans, while seven were named to the All-CAC team following the CAC championship victory as Salisbury went 19-2 overall and 6-0 in CAC play.

The 2013 season saw Salisbury's last trip to the NCAA championship game, finishing the year with a 17-4 record, winning eight games in a row -- including three in overtime -- to advance to the title game, falling 1-0 to Bowdoin College. The Sea Gulls had one All-American, four all-region selections, and eight players named to the All-CAC teams.

Chamberlin earned the 400th win of her career on September 29, 2012, to become just the fifth field hockey coach in NCAA Division III history to reach the milestone.
