Players on the Rise: Maura Donoghue (Fr.) and Dylan Singer (Fr.) have both showed promise during preseason. Freshmen Danielle & Shannon Mullins, both accomplished soccer players, are new to lacrosse but have shown their athleticism early on. Sophomore Lea Hegewald has stepped up to take over in goal.

Coach’s Outlook: With our 3 captains being our only 3 returning starters, we are going to have to deal with growing pains. New players will have to adjust to the speed of the varsity game. There is a very good chance several freshmen could crack the starting lineup.
