From Press Release

The schedule has been finalized for the Princeton Invitational, a four-team women’s lacrosse fall ball event at US Lacrosse on Saturday that will be highlighted by the dedication of the Chris Sailer Trail and the recognition of 11 Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWCLA) Trailblazers.

Sailer, a 2008 inductee into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame and haverford High alum, has won 386 games and three national championship during her career as the head women’s lacrosse coach at Princeton. The walking trail that surrounds Tierney Field at US Lacrosse headquarters will be named in her honor thanks in part to the support of former players.

Along the trail, the IWLCA has selected 11 former collegiate coaches to celebrate as trailblazers of the game for their exceptional work advancing women’s lacrosse and the coaching profession during the Title IX era. Recognized with a plaque along Chris Sailer Trail will be: Tina Sloan Green (Temple coach), Caroline Hausserman (Penn coach), Kathy Heinze, Carole Kleinfelder (Archbishop Prendergast grad, Harvard), Gillian Rattray (Penn State), Sue Stahl (Temple coach), Sue Tyler, Lanetta Ware, Marge Watson (Ursinus), and Judy Wolstenholme (Phoenixville alum, West Chester coach).

Admission to the event, which includes Fairfield, Princeton, Villanova and the New York Athletic Club, is free of charge.
