STANFORD, Calif. - The Stanford Athletic Department announced the addition of another World Cup player to its coaching ranks and to the women's lacrosse program. Quinn Carney, a 2001 graduate of the University of Maryland, joins Michele Uhlfelder and Liz Kittleman in the program.
At the University of Maryland, Carney was a four-year starter on four consecutive National Championship teams (1998-2001). She earned All-America and All-ACC honors twice, as well as being named the ACC Tournament MVP in 2001.
"Quinn is a great addition to our staff and a great fit, in terms of the ambitious goals of our program," commented Uhlfelder. "She has worked hard to establish herself early on as one of the premier players in the world, and comes to us with the experience of both a National Champion and a World Champion. Above all, we are excited about Quinn's level of knowledge and enthusiasm for teaching the game."
This past summer, she played alongside head coach Uhlfelder on the US World Cup team. Carney, the youngest player on the US team, was named Player of the Match twice, against Wales and Canada. The US defeated Australia in the Championship match 14-8 to claim its fourth consecutive IFWLA World Cup title.
In 2001, Stanford women's lacrosse compiled a 14-5 overall record and went 9-0 in the Western Women's Lacrosse League en route to the first top-20 national ranking in school history. The Cardinal ended the season by capturing its fourth consecutive WWLL title by defeating California 11-6 in the championship match.
