COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Maryland assistant coach and former Terrapin standout Quinn Carney will be inducted into the New Jersey Lacrosse Hall of Fame Sunday, Jan. 31, on the campus of Rutgers University.

Carney, who is in her second season as an assistant coach for her alma mater, was a two-time All-American and Academic All-American and was tabbed the MVP of the 2001 ACC Championship. The Flemington, N.J., native ranks in the top five in the three major offensive categories. Her 110 assists are third in a career at Maryland and her 162 goals and 265 points are both fifth.

Carney has also been an impact player on the U.S. national team, earning a gold medal at the 2001 World Championship and a silver medal at the 2005 World Cup. She was also a member of the 2005 All-World Team.

Carney joins Carter Marsh Abbott, Erin O'Neill Cacciabaudo, Mike Corcoran, Mike Iorio, David Metzbower, Charlie Shoulberg and Mark Tyree to comprise the New Jersey Hall of Fame Class of 2009.

"I am so honored to be recognized by the New Jersey Lacrosse Hall of Fame," Carney said. "I have been so fortunate to play and coach the game that I love, and to have been surrounded by people that made me better at it. I am so flattered to be honored with these other inductees, who have contributed so much to this sport."

The Maryland women's lacrosse team opens up its 2010 campaign with a home match against Richmond on Feb. 14.
