Washington, D.C. The National Mall is usually the center of every visitor’s trip to Washington DC. This tree-lined area of parkland stretches two and a half miles from the Potomac River to the United States Capitol on Capitol Hill and is adjoined by the White House. At one end of the National Mall, known as West Potomac Park, the Lincoln Memorial faces the Reflecting Pool with a good view of Arlington Memorial Bridge, Constitution Gardens, the Tidal Basin and the Washington Monument. Further towards Capitol Hill are a number of museums and galleries, among which are many of the Smithsonian Institution’s museums, including the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of the American Indian, and the Smithsonian Institution building.

American University Situated within the northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., American University’s traditional-style campus has much to offer students in the way of comfort, modern conveniences, and quick, easy access to city life. Our 84-acre, tree-lined campus, which was designated as a National Arboretum, is located at the top of Embassy Row in one of the most attractive, safe, and residential areas of our nation’s capital. The center of campus, also referred to as “the quad,” is a focal point of student life not only because our academic buildings line its grassy borders, but also because it’s a place to meet-and-greet with friends and student groups, catch an impromptu game of ultimate frisbee or take part in an after-class debrief with professors. Another favorite spot on campus is the beach volleyball pit located between the athletics fields. The adjacent grassy hillside is also a well known hangout for students on game days.

Academic Support The academic support program for student-athletes, a collaboration between the Academic Support Center and the Department of Athletics, assists student-athletes in successfully attaining academic goals and creating a balance between academics and athletics. The program serves to promote responsibility and initiative while encouraging student-athletes to take advantage of the rich resources offered at American University. Academic counselors work with student-athletes on skills needed for success in the classroom, and provide information about educational options, university and NCAA requirements, as well as policies and procedures. The program focuses on the development of the total person through individual meetings, study hall and tutoring, and life skills workshops.

American University Women’s Lacrosse laura CAMPBELL Head Coach • 1st Season • American ‘03 • 22-13 American University alumna Laura Campbell ’03, who helped bring the Eagles their first Patriot League Championship in 2003, has taken over as the head lacrosse coach at American.

“We are very excited to have Laura back on the American University campus. It is always wonderful to welcome an alum back, especially one as accomplished as Laura,” Director of Athletics Keith Gill commented. “Her success as a head coach at both the collegiate and high school levels, combined with her success as a studentathlete here at American, demonstrates her ability to lead a championship caliber program not only on the playing field but also in the classroom.” Campbell had spent the previous two seasons as the head coach at Marist, leading the Red Foxes to the 2010 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship and the program’s first-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Campbell guided Marist to a 22-13 overall record in that time. In 2009, the Red Foxes posted a 12-5 overall record, setting a school record for most wins in a season.

Prior to her time at Marist, Campbell posted a record of 42-18 in four seasons as a high school head girl’s lacrosse coach. She began her head coaching career at Centreville High School in Centreville, Va., where she coached from 2003-05 before moving on to coach Avon High School in Avon, Conn., from 2005-07. Campbell also served as the owner, director and head coach of the Northern Stars Lacrosse club team in Connecticut from 2005-08. In her role she was responsible for all aspects of the club’s operation. Campbell graduated from American University’s School of Communications in May of 2003, where she was a fouryear starter on the lacrosse team. Campbell helped the Eagles to their first Patriot League Championship in 2003, propelling American to its first NCAA Tournament appearance. American also advanced to the Patriot League Championship Game in 2002 and captured the Patriot League Regular Season Championship in 2002 and 2003. As a senior, Campbell tallied 20 points on 13 goals and seven assists as the Eagles set a program record with 11 wins.

Campbell’s student-athletes also received several accolades during her tenure at Marist, including sophomore Kelly Condon being named the 2010 MAAC Offensive Player of the Year. In total, 11 student-athletes were named to AllMAAC Teams in her two seasons while 23 were named to the MAAC All-Academic Team.

American University Women’s Lacrosse jackie PROCH Assistant Coach • 1st Season • Georgetown ‘10

Jackie Proch begins her first season as an assistant to Head Coach Laura Campbell. Proch graduated from Georgetown University in May of 2010 with a degree in Government. She played in 37 games during her four-year career, recording one assist, six ground balls, seven draw controls and six caused turnovers. Proch was also named a BIG EAST Academic All-Star during her junior and senior seasons. As a senior, Proch was named tri-captain by Coach Ricky Fried, who is also head coach of the U.S. Women’s Lacrosse National team. That same year, the Hoyas held an undefeated conference record for the first time since 2006 and finished 13-6 overall. They also captured their first BIG EAST Tournament Championship en route to an appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Proch recorded four ground balls, three caused turnovers and three draw controls during the campaign.

Proch was selected as a member of the StudentAthlete Leadership Academy at Georgetown, a program in which coaches and varsity student-athletes work together to develop leadership qualities. Her coaching experience includes having worked lacrosse camps at Navy, Georgetown, Princeton and James Madison. Proch was also the head coach of Jackals Club Lacrosse in Bethesda, Md. and Cardinal Club Lacrosse in Falls Church, Va. Prior to attending Georgetown, Proch captained the girl’s lacrosse team at St. Mary’s High School in Annapolis, Md. In 2006, she was named to the Washington Post All-County Team, received All-Met Honorable Mention and was an Academic All-American.

American University Women’s Lacrosse

2011 Season Outlook • The Eagles finished the 2010 season with a 3-3 record in conference play, good for fifth in the Patriot League. Six newcomers were added for the 2011 season and includes two attackers, two midfielders, one defender and one goalkeeper. They return nine starters and two All-Patriot League selections. • Senior Lisa Schaaf and junior Lauren Schoenberger will lead the Eagles’ offense. Schaaf started all 16 games last season, ranking fourth on the team with 23 points on 19 goals and four assists. She recorded two three-goal games, and tied for the team lead with two game-winning goals. Schoenberger also started all 16 games, and ranked second on the team in goals scored. Her 0.94 assists per game placed her seventh in the Patriot League, and she also recorded two three-goal games. • Emily Stankiewicz will continue to be a key contributor all over the field for the Eagles, as she led the team with 38 draw controls and finished second with 34 groundballs collected. She finished the regular season fifth in the Patriot League with 2.38 draw controls per game, earning her first All-League selection. Additionally, Stankiewicz added 20 goals and 26 points, good for third on the team in both categories. • Chiara Speziale will look to improve even further on an impressive freshman campaign in which her two Rookie of the Week selections tied her for most in the Patriot League. Speziale led the team in shot on goal percentage (.837), and scored at least one goal in each of the team’s final eight games. • Emma Larkin, coming off her first All-Patriot League season, will be a strong defensive presence for the Eagles. Larkin had a breakout season in 2010, as she led the league with 1.88 caused turnovers per game. She registered team-highs with 37 groundballs collected and 30 caused turnovers, and was also third on the squad with 22 draw controls. • Sophomore defender Laura Dawson will also look to continue an impressive start to her collegiate career. Dawson started all 15 games in which she played as a freshman, and tallied 24 ground balls, good for third most on the team. She registered 11 draw controls, including a career-high three against Lehigh, and caused a career-best three turnovers in her first-ever game as an Eagle. • Junior goalkeeper Kaska Komosinski played in 12 games last season, including seven starts, and is poised to start in goal full-time for the Eagles. She made 68 saves and had a .395 save percentage in 2010, earning a 4-6 overall record.
