From Press Release
Former Loyola (Md.) standout defender Katie Detwiler (Archbishop Carroll) has been added to the Saint Joseph’s women’s lacrosse coaching staff, head coach Alex Kahoe (Agnes Irwin) announced.
“I am thrilled to welcome Katie to our coaching staff,” Kahoe said. “She has been a proven winner over her career at Loyola and will bring a tremendous amount of leadership and experience to our team. I can’t wait for her to get started as we look to continue to move our program forward.”
Detwiler, a three-time IWLCA All-American (1st Team – 2022, 2nd Team – 2023, 2021) spent five seasons on the sidelines with the Greyhounds, starting in all 85 games in her career while compiling a 72-13 record overall and an unblemished 32-0 record in Patriot League action.
A stalwart in the Loyola defense, Detwiler helped her squad to four consecutive Patriot League Championships, earning Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year on three separate occasions. Her squad made postseason in all four seasons, tallying a 6-4 record with two quarterfinal appearances. The Greyhounds never finished outside of the top ten in the end-of-season rankings, coming off an eighth-ranked finish after falling to eventual champions Northwestern in the NCAA quarterfinals in 2023.
The two-time Tewaaraton Award Top 25 semifinalist collected individual accolades along with her team success, including four All-Patriot League selections (1st Team – 2023, 2022, 2021). Detwiler earned Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors in 2023.
Detwiler finished her career ranking fifth in program history in draw controls (197). Over her career, Detwiler compiled 86 ground balls, 65 caused turnovers and six goals.
Detwiler is a native of Devon, graduating from Carroll in 2018. She helped lead Carroll to the 2017 PIAA 3A championship.
