600 Career Wins: A Historical Achievement for St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes’ Women’s Lacrosse Coach
May 07, 2012
Kathy Jenkins, the head women’s lacrosse coach at St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School in Alexandria, Virginia, reached a record-setting milestone on May 3rd when she won her 600th career game. Jenkins, who has spent 41 years at St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes School and co-founded the women’s lacrosse program there, is the second coach in women’s lacrosse history to reach 600 wins. Jenkins is a coach, a leader, and a mentor. She teaches 5th grade P.E. and coaches JV girl’s tennis and middle school tennis, basketball, and lacrosse in addition to coaching the varsity women’s lacrosse team. Her career is an example of passionate commitment to sports, education, and her players. Even with this historic achievement, Jenkins remains humble and passes the credit for her victorious career to her players saying, "Obviously 600 is a lot of wins, but I don't think of it that way. I think of the [players]. I'd rather it go to them, because they're the ones out on the field doing it."
