Adams To Be Inducted Into National Lacrosse Hall Of Fame
May 23, 2012
BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland head women’s lacrosse coach, Jen Adams, has been announced as one of eight inductees into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame as approved by the US Lacrosse Board of Directors on Wednesday. This year’s eight-person class will be officially inducted in a ceremony Saturday, Oct. 20, at The Grand Lodge in Hunt Valley, Md.
Adams joins Roy Colsey, Brian Dougherty, Missy Foote, Kelly Amonte Hiller, Jesse Hubbard, Tim Nelson and her former collegiate coach, Cindy Timchal, as the 2012 induction class.
The National Lacrosse Hall of Fame, a program of US Lacrosse, was established in 1957 to honor men and women who by their deeds as players, coaches, officials and/or contributors, and by the example of their lives, personify the great contribution of lacrosse to our way of life. More than 350 lacrosse greats are honored in the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame, which is located with the Lacrosse Museum at US Lacrosse Headquarters in Baltimore.
Adams will be inducted as a truly great player. She enjoyed a record-setting four-year playing career at the University of Maryland from 1998-2001, during which time she earned first-team All-America honors three times and won first-ever Tewaaraton Award as a senior.
Adams was named the national player of the year and the national attacker of the year by the IWLCA three times, winning each award in 1999, 2000 and 2001. She concluded her career as Maryland’s all-time leader in goals, assists and points, and helped lead the Terrapins to four-straight NCAA national championships from 1998-2001.
A native of Australia, Adams also played for the Australian National Team in 2001, 2005 and 2009 and earned All-World honors twice.
Adams just finished her fourth-year as the head coach at Loyola, leading the team to back-to-back BIG EAST Conference titles and two-straight trips to the NCAA Quarterfinals.
