Two more Maryland coaches are headed to the Washington, D.C., Sports Hall of Fame. Men’s soccer coach Sasho Cirovski and women’s lacrosse coach Cathy Reese are part of this year’s class, which will be inducted in a pregame ceremony at Nationals Park on June 23 prior to the 1:35 p.m. game between the Nationals and the Atlanta Braves.
Former Maryland football and baseball player Tom Brown will join Cirovski and Reese in this year’s class.
Both coaches have led their respective teams to tremendous success and elite status in their respective sports. Cirovski has a 387-143-53 record in 26 years at Maryland and is one of just nine coaches in NCAA Division I history with three national championships and 400 career wins. The 2018 season may have been the best coaching job of his career, as the Terps rebounded from a 4-5-3 start to finish the season 9-1-1 en route to the program’s fourth national championship.
Reese is arguably the most dominant coach in the history of Maryland athletics, posting an absurd 265-21 record in 13 seasons since returning to coach her alma mater. She became the school’s all-time winningest women’s lacrosse coach earlier this season, and has led the Terps to four national championships and 10 straight Final Fours. Reese was also a part of four national championships during her playing career and three more as an assistant coach.
The pair become the sixth and seventh Maryland coaches to be inducted into the D.C. Sports Hall of Fame, joining Lefty Driesell, Brenda Frese, Missy Meharg, Chris Weller and Gary Williams.
