NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Former University of Notre Dame women's lacrosse All-American Maggie Tamasitis has been named to Team STX, the first-ever post-collegiate women's lacrosse team, the organization announced recently.

Tamasitis, who is now a first-year assistant at BIG EAST rival Rutgers, is one of nine other former collegiate standouts that have been signed by STX thus far. The organization will announce the remaining members of the team in June. Tamasitis and her teammates will have the opportunity to compete at the highest levels of the women's lacrosse circuit as well as help the organization's grassroots efforts to expand the reach of the game.

"I am excited for Maggie to continue playing lacrosse at this next level," said head coach Christine Halfpenny. "She has a passion to play the game and teach it. Being selected to this elite team will give her the opportunity to pursue both. The Notre Dame family looks forward to seeing her in action again soon!"

A two-time IWLCA All-American, Tamasitis finished as the school's all-time leader in assists for a half, game, season and career. She was a two-time all-BIG EAST selection, a two-time IWLCA first team West/Midwest all-region honoree and a two-time BIG EAST all-tournament team choice. A team captain as a senior, Tamasitis was a Tewaaraton Award nominee and received the Notre Dame Club of St. Joseph Valley Rockne Student-Athlete award. 

Joining Tamasitis on the team are Josie Owen (Denver), Grace Gavin (Loyola), Cacki Helmer (Cornell), Clayton Crum (Texas Club Lacrosse), Mary Flowers (Richmond), Julie Gardner (Virginia), Brittany Brigandi (LeMoyne), Dana Cahill (Penn State) and Lauren Benner (Virginia).
