Kate Faas Joins Canisius Lacrosse Coaching Staff

A national championship winning player, Kate Faas has joined the Canisius College staff as an assistant coach, announced by head coach Scott Teeter on Friday. Faas won a title as a member of the Maryland Terrapins during the 2010 season.

"Kate bring a lot of championship experience and knowledge to our attack," Teeter said. "I believe she will take our offense to the next level and having won a national championship at Maryland, she provides a valuable voice from our staff."

A member of the Terrapins from 2008 to 2010, Faas capped her career by helping the team to the national title in her senior season. In 20 games, Faas recorded 21 points and 19 goals. Prior to playing with Maryland, Faas spent two seasons with the nationally-ranked St. Bonaventure program, earning 2007 Atlantic-10 Player of the Year honors, while being named to the all-conference first team in both of her seasons.

Overall, the West Henrietta, N.Y. native totaled 172 points, 142 goals and 30 assists during her four-year collegiate career.

After finishing her playing career, Faas spent the 2011 season serving as a volunteer assistant coach with Delaware.

Canisius returns 13 letterwinners and five starters in 2012 from the most successful season in the program's history. The Griffs won a school-record 14 games in 2011, while claiming their first MAAC Championship.
