When the University of Maryland women’s lacrosse team netted its 15th national title in May, Cathy Reese ’98 hoisted the NCAA trophy for an astonishing 12th time.

After winning it all in each of her four years as an attacker for the Terps, Reese helped UMD tally another three titles as assistant coach before taking the helm in 2007. Since then, she’s become the program’s winningest head coach, leading Maryland to 11 consecutive Final Fours and five more championships.

Along the way, Reese has seen members of her squad take home eight Tewaaraton Awards, given annually to the top collegiate player in the sport—including goalie Megan Taylor this past season.

The accolades don’t stop there. Huddle up and check how Reese’s success has been intertwined with the Terps’.
