MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College field hockey coach Katherine DeLorenzo will be a part of the fourth class of inductees into the Goucher College Athletics Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will be held April 26 at the Baltimore, Md., school. Goucher’s Hall of Fame is intended to recognize, honor and perpetuate the memory of those individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Goucher College athletics and its intercollegiate athletics program.
DeLorenzo was the first player in the history of Goucher’s field hockey program to score 25 goals during her career. She probably would have scored more during her four seasons if she had not also put in time as the Gophers’ goalkeeper, racking up an .866 save percentage.
She also competed in lacrosse and swimming, and was named the lacrosse team’s Most Valuable Player in 1987 and 1988. DeLorenzo has enjoyed even greater success as head field hockey coach for Middlebury College, guiding her teams to four NCAA Division III championship game appearances.
In 2003, DeLorenzo earned the first of two New England Coach of the Year awards, as well as Division III National Coach of the Year honors. In 2012, she led the team to a perfect 17-0 record en route to its second NESCAC championship and was named New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Coach of the Year. Her tenure at Middlebury followed a successful stint at Skidmore College.
