Navy assistant coach Kristen Waagbo will be a guest teacher Saturday at Episcopal Academy during CrosseFire clinic from 2-to-4 p.m. (players in Grades 8 – 9 & Middle School Goalies) and 4-to-6 p.m. (Grades 10 – 11 – 12 & High School Goalies).

Waagbo, who works with the Mids’ offense, is Duke’s all-time career and single-season assist leader. She amassed 277 points and 161 career goals, totals which rank second all-time to fellow Blue Devils’ great and 2005 Tewaaraton winner Katie Chrest.

Waagbo enjoyed perhaps her finest season as a senior in 2007, setting a Duke record with 44 assists and totaling a career-best 90 points in just 20 games (4.5 pts/gm). For her efforts, she earned USWLA/USL First-Team All-America honors and finished as a semifinalist for the Tewaaraton award. During her four-year career, Duke won 79 percent of its games (64-17), captured four ACC regular season titles and advanced to three NCAA Final Fours.

An Ellicott City, Md. native, Waagbo made a name for herself in the lacrosse circles early on, helping to lead her Mount Hebron High School squad to four consecutive state championships. She also was a member of the U.S. Under-19 squad which won the 2003 World Championships held in Towson. Waagbo was recently inducted into the Howard County’s Sports Hall of Fame.
