Beloit College Women's Lacrosse Head Coach Meredith Newman has tapped Maggie Zentgraf as the team's assistant coach. The move was announced last week.
Zentgraf comes to Beloit for the 2014 season from Western Albemarle High School in Crozet, Va., where she was part of a staff that was named the Regional Coaches of the Year, leading the team to a 14-0 regular season, as well as District and Regional Championships. She served as the team’s Defensive Coach.
A 2010 graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Zentgraf worked the past year as a behavioral health specialist at The New Y-CAPP, Inc. in Charlottesville, Va., providing psychotherapeutic interventions combined with education support for middle and high school students.
Her coaching experience, in addition to Western Albemarle, include head coach for the Mid-Atlantic Virginia Team at the National Tournament in 2012 and 2013; CV Lax Club head coach in the summer and fall of 2011; and ACAC Lacrosse indoor coach in Charlottesville from November 2010 through December 2012.
A native of Charlottesville, Maggie played college lacrosse for the Fighting Irish, earning three NCAA tournament bids, one visit to the Sweet Sixteen, and a Big East Championship. She was a two-time Big East Academic All-Star and was named captain her senior year. She received the Christopher Zorich Award for community service her senior year for her contributions to the South Bend community.
