University of Maryland head coaches Cathy Reese and Sasho Cirovski have been selected for induction into the Washington DC Sports Hall of Fame. They are among 11 honorees who will be inducted during a June 23 ceremony at Nationals Park before the Washington Nationals play the Atlanta Braves.
Reese, who became the all-time winningest coach in Maryland history this season, holds a 265–21 record over 13 seasons as head coach of the Terps.
The 1998 University of Maryland graduate has won 11 national championships at Maryland (four as a player, three as an assistant coach, four as a head coach) and has been named the IWLCA National Coach of the Year three times. Recently also inducted into the Maryland Athletics Hall of Fame, Reese has reached the final four in each of the past 20 seasons and has 20 conference championships as head coach at Maryland, most recently winning the Big Ten regular season title last weekend.
Reese has coached seven Tewaaraton Award winners, 16 Tewaaraton finalists and 57 All-Americans in her time at Maryland. As a player, Reese was a two-time All-American & First Team All-ACC and the 1998 NCAA Tournament Most Valuable Player.
Cirovski, the winningest coach in Maryland soccer history (387–143–53), has captured three national championships, most recently in 2018. He has led the Terps to 24 postseason berths, including nine appearances in the College Cup, and has recorded 25 consecutive winning seasons. He is a two-time national coach of the year.
Now entering his 27th season at Maryland, Cirovski has won 15 conference titles and produced 34 All-Americans. Two Maryland players under Cirovski’s leadership have won three MAC Hermann Trophy awards for National Player of Year, and 10 have been finalists for the award.
Forty-eight of Cirovski’s players have been selected in the MLS SuperDraft, including two No. 1 picks, and many others have played at the international level, including five included in World Cup squads.
Former Maryland football and baseball player Tom Brown, who went on to play in both Major League Baseball and the National Football League, where he won three titles, was also selected for induction.
