Chiriaco was a member of the first recruiting class at Maryland, back in 2004. She served as team captain in her junior and senior years and helped lead the team to three NCA titles in 2006, 2007, and 2008. After she graduated with her degree from the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at Maryland, Chiriaco stayed on staff as a volunteer assistant for the last three years.
"Laura has been a part of this program from day one and she truly understands where we want it to go," director of athletics Kevin Anderson said. "She has seen it evolve over the last seven years. She has a true passion for Maryland and for this team."
The Terrapins won four event titles at last year's NCATA Championships.
