Danielle Etrasco enters her first year as an assistant coach with the Virginia Tech lacrosse team after wrapping up a stellar playing career at Boston University.
Etrasco left a lasting mark at BU as she finished her career second on the all-time scoring (192) and points (248) lists. The Massapequa, N.Y., native also ranks tenth in all-time assists (56), and is tied for third on the draws list with 157. She was named an IWLCA third team All-American as a junior, while also boasting IWLCA Northeast All-Region and America East All-Conference First Team honors in each of the past three seasons. The two-time team captain was also named America East Player of the Year in 2011.
A member of the US National team since 2011, Etrasco traveled to Canada this summer as a member of the US World Cup squad, helping the team to goal medal at the FIL World Cup.
Earning her degree in hospitality administration this past spring, Etrasco has served as a coach for Long Island Liberty Lacrosse, creating practice plans and implementing game strategy for the club squad. She has also handled coaching and teaching duties at Around the Crease camps.
