History-Making Women’s Lacrosse Player Katie Schwarzmann Joins Penn State Coaching Staff

One of the all-time greats in women’s lacrosse is joining Missy Doherty’s staff as a volunteer assistant coach for Penn State during the 2018 season. Katie Schwarzmann, a two-time Tewaaraton Award winner (2012-13) at Maryland as college lacrosse’s best player, joins the Nittany Lions after spending three seasons as an assistant coach at Mount St. Mary’s.

In her post-collegiate playing career, she led the United States to back-to-back FIL World Championships in 2013 and 2017. Schwarzmann also made history in 2016 with the United Women’s Lacrosse League — the first professional league in women’s lacrosse — as the top pick in the inaugural draft.

Considering Schwarzmann led the Terps to four consecutive NCAA National Semifinals as a player — winning the title in 2010 — she should be a welcome addition to the coaching staff of a Nittany Lions team that is seeking its third-straight Final Four appearance this season.

“I am extremely excited to work with Missy [Doherty], her staff, and the Penn State women’s lacrosse team,” Schwarzmann said. “The team is full of players that are hard-working, talented, and everyone has high expectations for the upcoming season. I am honored and grateful to be a part of the program and help them achieve our goals this year.”

Schwarzmann joins her husband, John Haus, in Happy Valley after was named an assistant for the men’s lacrosse team.
