The Boston University women’s lacrosse team and head coach Liz Robertshaw
announced the addition of Ana Heneberry
as an assistant coach on Tuesday.
Heneberry arrives at BU after spending the past two seasons as an assistant coach at High Point University. She helped guide the Panthers to back-to-back Big South championships and two straight NCAA tournament appearances. Heneberry was the defensive coordinator and also worked one-on-one with the goaltenders.
"We are excited to have Ana join the Boston University family," Robertshaw said. "I have a tremendous amount of respect for what Ana has done on the playing field during her time at Loyola and on the sidelines coaching a team to back-to-back conference titles and NCAA tournament appearances. She has a no-nonsense approach to her coaching that I feel will help push our young defensive corps, and her ability to work with players to help them meet their potential is something that I was looking for in this hire."
A native of Timonium, Maryland, Heneberry was a four-year standout at Loyola from 2009 until 2012. She helped lead the Greyhounds to a pair of Big East titles and NCAA quarterfinal appearances in 2011 and 2012. Heneberry became the second player in school history to record 100 caused turnovers and 100 ground balls. She was a third-team All-American and team MVP in 2011 and was also named to the 2012 Tewaaraton Award watch list. In addition, she was an All-Big East honoree and All-Tournament selection in her junior and senior years.
“I am so excited about the opportunity that I have been given here at Boston University,” Heneberry said. “The prestige, reputation and tradition held by the school and the women's lacrosse program are a wonderful thing to be a part of and I look forward to what is to come.”
The Terriers will begin their fall schedule on Sept. 27 when they host Louisville at New Balance Field.
