Maryland Announces Addition of Graduate Transfer Marge Donovan


COLLEGE PARK, Md. — On Thursday, Maryland women’s lacrosse head coach Cathy Reese announced the addition of All-American defender Marge Donovan to the program for the 2023 season.
Donovan comes to Maryland from Princeton where she played five seasons. 
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Marge into our program for 2023,” Reese said. “She is an incredible defender that we have admired for years while watching and facing her at Princeton. We know she will fit in seamlessly on our defense and help us accomplish big things next season.” 
The graduate student was named the Ivy League Defender of the Year, a third-team IWLCA All-American, first-team All-Ivy selection and the Ivy League tournament Most Outstanding Player in 2022, as she graduated as Princeton’s all-time leader in career draw controls (214) and draws in a season (112 in 2022). 
A captain of the 2022 Tigers team, Donovan tallied 112 draw controls to set the program record, caused 32 turnovers and recorded 25 ground balls to go with two goals and three assists. Donovan helped lead Princeton to an Ivy League championship and berth in the NCAA second round.
Donovan is a three-time All-Ivy selection, 2022 Tewaaraton Watch List selection, 2019 Honorable Mention All-American and 2018 Inside Lacrosse All-Rookie Team honoree. Donovan also is a member of the U.S. women’s Sixes team and competed in The World Game Sixes this past month, where she earned a silver medal.
