ST. AUGUSTINE – Flagler College head women’s lacrosse coach Grant Kelam has announced the hiring of Kara Antonucci as an assistant coach on the Flagler women’s lacrosse staff.

“We could not be more thrilled to have Kara join the Flagler coaching staff here in St. Augustine,” said Kelam. “Not only does Kara bring a wealth of playing experience at the elite levels of our sport, she embodies the toughness and grit to achieve success at the top. That is exactly what we are striving for here at Flagler, and I know she is going to help prepare our players both mentally and physically to achieve the same success.”

Antonucci had a decorated four-year career as a defender at NCAA Division II women’s lacrosse powerhouse, the University of Indianapolis. She was a two-time Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-American, earning third-team honors in 2021 and first-team accolades in 2022. Antonucci was a USA Lacrosse Magazine third-team All-American in 2022. She was a two-time first-team All-Great Lakes Valley Conference and was the league’s defender of the year in 2022, the year the Greyhounds won the NCAA Division II National Title. Antonucci was a four-time academic all-conference honoree.   

In her career at UIndy, Antonucci finished with four goals, three assists, 59 ground balls, 52 caused turnovers, and 115 draw controls. She is third all-time in caused turnovers and fifth in draw controls. 

The Chicago, Illinois native started her career at Arizona State University where she played in 15 games and started 12 as a true freshman. She collected 10 ground balls and caused three turnovers for the Sun Devils.

Antonucci earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration and management from UIndy this last spring. She spent this past summer coaching at the Circle City Club team where she focused on offensive and defensive strategy.
