Stacey Stem, a graduate of Liberty High School and a successful coach at South Carroll High School, has been named to the athletics hall of fame at Salisbury State University.

Stem, a four-time All-America choice while playing field hockey and lacrosse in the mid-1980s, is one of four who will be inducted during ceremonies on Sept. 26.

A 1987 graduate, she will be joined by Dean Burroughs, a SSU men's and women's tennis coach for 28 years; Delores Gardner Sasajima, Class of '59 (field hockey, basketball), who lives in Joppa; and Mike McInerney, Class of '84 (wrestling), now living in Bishopville.

Stem, who played on two state championship teams at Liberty, was a four-year starter in hockey and lacrosse for the Sea Gulls. She was a three-time All-America pick in hockey and once in lacrosse.

During her college career she scored 63 points in hockey and Salisbury won the Division III national championship during her senior year.

More recently, during an eight-year career coaching field hockey and lacrosse, she guided South Carroll to a state field hockey championship (1991), and was named a metro and state coach of the year.

She is now in her first year as coach of both sports at Hood College, and is a physical education teacher at St. John's Regional School in Frederick.
