Agnes “Aggie” Stegmuller of Aldan has posthumously received the U.S. Lacrosse Lifetime Achievement Award, according to laxallstars.com.
Stegmuller, who passed away in 2010 at 87, was recognized for her five decades of contributions to lacrosse.
A former four-sport athlete (badminton, basketball, field hockey, and softball) at Temple University, she was a lacrosse women’s game umpire for 48 years.
Stegmuller was a highly-regarded official at Philadelphia-area games. She umpired Pennsylvania championship games and at the USWLA’s National Tournament. In 1995, she received the PIAA’s award for 25 years of outstanding officiating service.
She served on the USWLA’s Umpire Committee and the organization’s executive committee. She also served as an intercollegiate official, including assignments at the AIAW Championships.
Stegmuller has been inducted into five Hall of Fames, including the Delaware County Athletics Hall of Fame and the Temple University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1984, and the Pennsylvania State Hall of Fame in 1999.
Also receiving Lifetime Achievement status was Tom Flatly of Floral Park, New York.
“The impact that Aggie and Tom have had on our sport is only exceeded by the humility and selflessness that defined their involvement,” said Lacrosse CEO Steve Stenersen.
