Greenhill Coach and Staff Inducted into Eastern Pennsylvania Lacrosse Hall of Fame
Congratulations to Greenhill Coach Mary Stefano, who was inducted into the Eastern Pennsylvania Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
A 1987 graduate of Penn State, Mary Stefano first made her mark on the lacrosse world at Moorestown High School in New Jersey, where she was a member of the All-South Jersey Team and part of the New Jersey state championship team in 1983.
At Penn State, as the team captain in her senior season of 1987, Mary led the Nittany Lions to a 17-2 record and their first NCAA Championship and fourth overall national title. A three-time first team All-American (1985-87), she was a part of the teams that compiled an impressive 59-10 record over the course of her career.
Mary went on to play for the Philadelphia Club Lacrosse team for ten years and later was the recipient of the 1994 Beth Allen Award, an honor presented to a member of the US Lacrosse Women’s Division who excels on the field and positively represents her team at the National Tournament.
On the international level, she was a U.S. Women’s National Team member from 1986-1993. She also was a member of the 1989 and 1993 World Cup Gold medal teams. Mary was inducted into the New Jersey Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1997 and the U.S. National Hall of Fame in 2010.
In addition to her lacrosse accolades, Mary was a four-year letterwinner on the Penn State field hockey team. She received NFCHA First Team All-America honors in 1985 and 1986.
On top of acting as the Greenhill Adjunct Coach for middle school lacrosse and JV field hockey since the Spring of 2020, Mary continues to serve Greenhill as the Middle School Office Coordinator.
