JACKIE PFEILER, HEAD COACH

Coach Jackie went to Mount de Sales Academy in Catonsville, MD< where she was a four-year varsity player in lacrosse. During her Mount de Sales senior year, Jackie was named Sailor Athlete of Year, Catonsville Times Athlete of the Year, Most Valuable Player for MDS, and Co-Captain and MVP for the Association of Independent Schools All-Star Team. She was also named a U.S. Women’s Lacrosse Association High School All-American. She was inducted into Mount de Sales Hall of Fame in 2010.

Jackie went to college at UMBC where she accumulated 158 points in four years, with 115 goals and 43 assists while only playing attack for three years. She was the 1990 UMBC Senior Athlete of the Year and was a 1989 &1990 USWLA & Brine All American. She was inducted into the UMBC Hall of Fame in 1995.

Jackie joined Bitmore in 2015 when Lindsey Teeters took over the girls program. Jackie has 25 plus years of coaching experience at various levels including rec, high school and club lacrosse. Jackie resides in Catonsville with her husband Eric, and kids Max and Katie (2023).

Coaching philosophy: is to practice as you play – if you work hard at practice it will become second nature and payoff in the games. I like to focus on fundamentals and for the girls to become overall well rounded players.
