Kristi Korrow, longtime women’s lacrosse coach at Dulaney High School, was inducted into the Greater Baltimore Lacrosse Foundation Hall of Fame at a ceremony on Saturday, Jan. 18.
Korrow was among eight inductees into the Hall of Fame Class of 2020, which also honored Sarah Oglesby Slomkowski, Elizabeth Martin, Rebecca Trumbo-Groves, Steve Marohl, James Tucker Radebaugh, James Ulman and Drew Westervelt.
The Hall of Fame honors players and coaches who represent the highest degree of excellence and dedication to the game of lacrosse. In particular, they are selected for being outstanding players, who may also be also outstanding coaches or officials, and who have contributed noteworthy service to the game of lacrosse over the years.
Korrow was a standout athlete at both Mercy High School and Loyola University Maryland. She was a three-sport varsity athlete in lacrosse, soccer and indoor track while at Mercy, where she was named Sportswoman of the Year as a senior as well as earning All-City/County All-Star honors from The Baltimore Sun.
Korrow then became a key member of four Loyola University Maryland women’s lacrosse NCAA tournament teams in the early 2000s, advancing twice to the Final Four.
Since 2004, Korrow has coached at Dulaney High School, where she is also an English teacher. She holds an overall record of 130-52 while leading the program to Maryland state championships in 2005, 2006 and 2016.
Coach Korrow is truly deserving of the honor of being named to the Hall of Fame.
Carmen Roy, a junior at Dulaney High School, was recently named to the Outstanding Young Women Leaders Program. Carmen joins 24 high school juniors, one each representing their Baltimore County high school, as a part of the 2020 Cohort of this new initiative of the Towson University Women’s Leadership Collective.
The collective is the brainchild of Dr. Nancy Grasmick, former state superintendent of Maryland Public Schools and now the Presidential Scholar and Women’s Leadership Ambassador at Towson University.
Each outstanding junior was nominated by their high school’s principal based on academic, leadership and community service requirements before being reviewed and interviewed by the Women’s Leadership Collective.
The program will run for the rest of the calendar year and will feature a series of academic and career activities about every six weeks. The program kicked off with a welcoming retreat, held on Jan. 24 at Towson University.
Each student also will be matched with a successful professional woman who will serve as a coach and counselor during the year. Carmen is an accomplished student at Dulaney High School, where she is the president of the junior class as well as a standout field hockey player.
Other local students named to the 2020 Cohort include Macie Hakim of Towson High, Anni Zhang of Loch Raven High, Nasreen Naqvi of Carver High and Georgia Hammond of Hereford High.
