Arianna Kreush

Head Women's Lacrosse Coach

Kreush entered her first season as head coach of the Hiram Women’s Lacrosse program in 2021 and her third year overall with the program. Kreush rejoined the Terriers after spending the past two years at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, where she served as an assistant women’s lacrosse coach for the Blues.

In her lone season with the Blues, Kreush helped create practice and tactical game plans, individual instruction with an emphasis on goalies and attack, aided in the recruitment and scouting of talent and coached four games before Whitman’s season was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, eight Blues earned Northwest Conference All-Academic honors in Kreush’s time with Whitman.

Prior to joining Whitman, Kreush spent two seasons with Hiram as the graduate assistant women’s lacrosse coach and recruiting coordinator. Over two seasons with the Terriers, Kreush helped coach a trio of All-North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) honorees in Second-Team All-NCAC selection Sierah Ray and Honorable Mention All-NCAC selections Rachel Metcalf and Katelyn Slomovitz, as well as four NCAC Academic Honor Roll selections.

Additionally, Kreush helped the Terriers to their best record in program history in 2018, with wins over Hilbert (N.Y.), North Carolina Wesleyan, Thiel and Wilmington (Ohio), while numerous seniors graduated with program records during her two years with the Terriers.

Previously, Kreush also coached a number of club lacrosse teams, most recently the Tenacity Project in Bay Area, California for the past year, as well as the 18u, 16u and 2023 Elite Teams with True Lacrosse Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from Dec. 2017 to May 2019.

Kreush began her coaching career as a youth lacrosse coach at Scarsdale Youth Lacrosse in Scarsdale, New York in February, 2015, serving as the head coach of the fifth-grade team and an assistant coach for the seventh and eighth-grade teams for two years.

A 2017 graduate of Manhattanville, Kreush was a four-year women’s lacrosse player for the Valiants, tallying 14 goals and three assists on 45 shots over 19 games played and 12 starts. A two-time Middle American Conference Spring Honor Roll and Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Honor Roll selection, Kreush helped Manhattanville to 22 wins over her four years with the program.
