SSSAS Coach Kathy Jenkins Nearing Her 600th Career Win

Alexandria, Virginia -- Kathy Jenkins, head coach of the girls' varsity lacrosse team at St. Stephen's & St. Agnes School, is quickly approaching an important milestone later this season: 600 career wins. To date, she is at 589 wins, and with 13 scheduled games remaining before the post-season, she could reach the 600 mark as early as May 3.

To mark this achievement, the school will honor Jenkins on Saturday, May 12 at 9:30 a.m. on the Upper School girls' lacrosse field (1000 St. Stephen's Road, Alexandria, VA 22304) prior to the first-round ISL Conference Tournament game. If for some reason there are circumstances that prevent us from being able to celebrate on May 12, we will communicate the rescheduled date as soon as possible.

Jenkins co-founded the girls' lacrosse program at SSSAS in 1976. At the time, she had never played the game herself, but she used her background as a basketball coach and her passion, dedication, discipline for sports, and caring for her players to create one of the most successful girls' lacrosse programs in the country.

Her teams have won 24 conference tournament championships, 21 league titles, six state titles, and have had eight undefeated seasons. Jenkins has sent hundreds of players on to compete at the collegiate level and continues to mentor them into college and beyond.

In service to youth sports, she has served on numerous boards, while coaching and mentoring athletes around the Washington, D.C. area through clinics, camps, and awards programs. Jenkins is a member of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame in the Potomac and Virginia chapters. She also teaches fifth grade P.E. and coaches JV girls' tennis and Middle School girls' tennis, basketball, and lacrosse.
