EUGENE, Ore. – Oregon lacrosse added another transfer on Friday as head coach Jess Drummond announced the signing of attacker Kristiana Strtak.
Strtak lands in Eugene after playing four seasons under Drummond at Vermont (2020-23). The Hinsdale, Ill., native took on a larger role in the lineup in 2023, playing in a career-high 15 games including 10 starts. During the campaign, Strtak logged seven goals, one assist and 31 draw controls.
“I’m thrilled to bring Kristiana into the Duck family,” Drummond said. “Her talent on the draw and on the offensive end will be an incredible addition to our team. Kristiana’s positive energy and passion for the game are contagious and make her a natural leader that people want to follow. I’m excited to see her excel here at Oregon.”
Strtak was a member of a Vermont program that made three-consecutive appearances in the America East Tournament for the first time in program history. In 2022, the Catamounts posted a program-best record of 14-5 and qualified for the NCAA Tournament after winning the conference championship. Strtak is the second player from Vermont to transfer to UO for the 2024 season, joining defender Abbey Gicewicz.
