Annapolis Area Christian School has named Deanna Thorpe varsity head girls lacrosse coach for the 2018 season.  Coach Thorpe takes over for Lauren Burleigh who stepped down after the 2017 season.  Coach Burleigh led the Eagles to IAAM C Championships in 2015 and 2016.  The team moved up to the B Conference in 2017, finishing in 4th place. “It is my privilege and honor to take the baton from former AACS Girls Varsity Head Coach Lauren Burleigh.  She worked hard, on and off the field, to get the team to play a higher level of lacrosse, and it showed.  I hope to continue to move the team’s momentum forward while sharing my playing and coaching experiences with them!”  - Deanna Thorpe

Coach Thorpe served at AACS as a varsity assistant coach in 2003 and then rejoined the AACS staff in 2015 as the head middle school coach.  Coach Thorpe played her college ball at the University of Maryland and was a member of two NCAA National Championship teams (1996 and 1997) and an ACC Championship team (1997). “Coach Thorpe has played at the highest level and is a former college champion, but more importantly she is a woman of integrity.  She has a great vision for the program and I look forward to working with her to help take our lacrosse program to the next level.” - Jim Domoracki, Director of Athletics
