  • TRENTON, NJ – Former Rutgers field hockey coach Ann Petracco was honored with a ceremonial resolution by the New Jersey Senate on Thursday, Feb. 27, for her outstanding tenure of service to the Scarlet Knights.

    After 26 years of coaching field hockey and women’s lacrosse at Rutgers, Petracco retired at the conclusion of the 2002 season. Rutgers field hockey enjoyed tremendous success under the leadership of Petracco. For 26 years, she oversaw a national-caliber program, posting a career record of 248-229-40.

    Along with the team’s accomplishments have come many individual accolades. During her career, Petracco coached 60 regional All-Americans and 10 national All-Americans. Petracco also coached seven national-team members and 46 all-conference team members while “On the Banks.”

    As the head coach of the women’s lacrosse team for 11 seasons (1980-91), Petracco amassed a 66-97-3 record, including a 10-6 mark in her final season. Her lacrosse players earned 11 regional All-America awards, five national All-America certificates and one national academic All-America honor.
