Katrina Reeves has joined the Central Michigan lacrosse program as a graduate assistant.
Reeves, a California native, was an All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation goalkeeper at San Diego State. She helped lead the Aztecs to the MPSF Tournament semifinals in 2017, earning a nod to the all-tournament team.
She finished as SDSU’s leader in career saves and career ground balls, and last spring set a program record with a .433 save percentage.
“She’s coming from a program that’s in only its sixth year,” said Sara Tisdale, the head coach of CMU’s 2-year-old program. “She understands what it takes to build a championship-caliber program.”
Reeves earned her bachelor’s degree in child and family development and earned the Scholar-Athlete Award four times as a student-athlete at SDSU. She was also named to the Dean’s List four times.
Her playing resumé includes membership on the Spanish National Women’s Lacrosse Team. In 2015, she was named to the All-European Team after the ELF Women’s Lacrosse European Championship.
She is scheduled to compete with Spain in the World Cup this summer. Reeves has coached at both the high school and club levels and was a two-time U.S. Lacrosse High School All-American and a two-time U.S. Lacrosse High School Academic All-American.
“She has an incredible resume,” said Tisdale, who led the Chippewas to a 7-10 finish in 2017. “She’s played against some of the best players in the world and also some of the best in the U.S. during her time at San Diego State. I think she’ll garner immediate respect from our players because of those experiences, and she will undoubtedly help us elevate our play.”
