WASHINGTON, D.C. - Maryland women's lacrosse head coach Cathy Reese was inducted into the Potomac Chapter of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame Saturday night at the University Club in Washington, D.C.
Reese, who is in her third season as head coach of the Terps, was a standout for Maryland from 1994-98 and amassed a 75-4 record while earning All-America honors as a junior and a senior. The Terps won four national titles while Reese was a student-athlete and captured another three when Reese roamed the sidelines as an assistant coach. Reese boasts a 34-7 record and two NCAA tournament quarterfinal appearances in her first two seasons at the helm of the Terrapin program.
In addition to her coaching duties at Maryland, Reese serves the lacrosse community by serving on the NCAA lacrosse committee and selection committees for the Tewaarton, All-American, and North/South. She is also chair of the Regional Advisory committee.
"This is an incredible honor," Reese said. "The game of lacrosse has been fantastic to me and it was really nice to be recognized among some amazing people that have had such a great impact on the game."
Reese is part of the seventh class to be inducted into the chapter as she joins former Maryland head coach Cindy Timchal (Class of 2006) and teammate Jen Adams (Class of 2007) in the hall. Alix Fellows, Jude Collins, Darah Bonham, Thomas McHugh, and John Sothoron were also inducted Saturday.
