Stukenberg Joins Women's Lacrosse Staff As Volunteer Assistant
Loyola University Maryland head women’s lacrosse coach Jen Adams has announced that Maryland standout and 2017 Tewaaraton Award recipient Zoe Stukenberg has joined the Greyhounds’ program as a volunteer assistant coach.
“I am extremely excited to welcome a player and person of Zoe’s caliber to our coaching staff,” Adams said. “As one of the most dynamic midfielders in the game, Zoe has so much to offer our student-athletes both on and off the field. In addition to her stellar playing resume, Zoe exemplifies the outstanding character and commitment to excellence that is synonymous to our program. We look forward to working with her this year.”
A first-team All-American, Honda Award recipient, ESPY nominee and ILWomen National Midfielder of the Year as a senior, Stukenberg comes to Loyola after leading No. 1 Maryland (23-0) to its 14th NCAA title and fifth undefeated season in 2017. The midfielder from Ellicott City, Maryland, finished last season in the top three of every statistical category for the Terrapins, with 53 goals, 31 assists, 74 draw controls and 21 caused turnovers.
A three-time Elite 90 Award winner as the women’s lacrosse player with the highest GPA in the NCAA Division I final four, Stukenberg maintained a 4.0 through all four years as a biological science major. She received Maryland’s Big Ten Medal of Honor and Distinguished Scholar award, while also being named a CoSIDA first-team Academic All-American.
The 2014 ACC Freshman of the Year, Stukenberg helped the Terrapins to an 89-3 record and three national championships throughout her career. She’s currently living in Baltimore and teaching biology at a Baltimore City public high school.
