Women’s team welcomes Kristen Waagbo as co-coach!

Posted on July 19, 2008 by |

We are very happy to announce that their coaching staff is extended by Kristen Waagbo. All girls are very excited that she is willing to join the team on this short notice. Kristen is currently working as an assistant coach at Navy. She had an award filled high school career in both Lacrosse and Basketball where she won Baltimore athlete of the year, two years in a row. Furthermore, she was a member of the USA U19 team which won the world championships in 2003 and followed that up with an amazing four year stint at Duke University where she leaves as the all-time leader in career and season assists. Other achievements include 3 final four appearances, 2 time all-American, and 2 time national player of the year (Tewaaraton Trophy). You can find an interview from ‘athletes of the week’ here. David Abini and Kristen will lead the girls to what will be the greatest adventure of of Dutch women’s lacrosse in history. Kristen would describe herself as somebody who is very laid back and likes to have a lot of fun out on the field…. Laughing she added: “oh, but I am also super competitive, which you guys will find out if I step in and play in some drills with you, which I hope to do!” Well, after you have read all introductions of the women’s team members, you would agree that all girls are more than ready to fully commit to the team, their coaches and the accompanying hard and extensive practices.
