Former Maryland women’s lacrosse player Caroline Steele was named an assistant coach at Saint Joseph’s University Tuesday.
“I am so excited to join the Saint Joseph’s family,” Steele said. ”The women’s lacrosse program has been consistently improving since [head coach Alex Kahoe] has taken over. I truly look forward to showing my worth and value for this team, as I have gained such valuable exposure to this wonderful game over my years of playing and coaching. What’s so great about this program is that we have a staff that is incredibly devoted to putting this team on the right path to success.”
Steele made quite the impact during her time in College Park from 2016 to 2019, helping lead the team to two national titles along the way (2017, 2019).
The former Terp was a two-time All-American, two-time All-Big Ten honoree and also took home 2017 Big Ten Tournament MVP honors. Steele also made her way into the record books, finishing her career seventh all-time in Maryland history with 205 goals.
Steele joins Terp teammate Julia Braig, who was named an assistant coach for the Hawks in the fall. The duo played together for four years under Maryland head coach Cathy Reese.
Kahoe is also a fellow Terp, having graduated in 2000.
