US Lacrosse Sponsors “Stars & Stripes Weekend” Featuring Team USA Women’s Lacrosse At Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA On Oct 3-7
USC Women’s Lacrosse Head Coach Lindsey Munday Elected Team Captain Of US Women’s Lacrosse National Team
Lindsey Munday was elected team captain of the U.S. Women’s Lacrosse National Team by the 24-player traveling team that will face Canada and the Haudenosaunee in this weekend’s North American Challenge Cup in Oshawa, Ontario.
“It’s a huge honor. I’m so fortunate to be a part of this team. I think everyone feels that. We’re all so lucky to represent our country, and it’s crazy surprising that I was voted [captain],”Munday said.
Munday is currently coach at the University of Southern California in addition to her role with Team USA. As a college player, she was a two-time NCAA champion at Northwestern in 2005 and 2006 and a Tewaaraton finalist in the same years. Munday holds the Wildcats’ career assists record (128), and served as an assistant at her alma mater between 2007 and 2010, during which time Northwestern won three more NCAA championships.
“Lindsey’s a great player and a great leader, which makes for a terrific captain. DJ’s a tough act to follow, but Lindsey’s more than up to the task,” Team USA coach Ricky Fried said.
DeJuliis presented Munday with an official captain’s armband, which Munday jokingly tried to fit over the cast that currently encases her left wrist. Munday broke her wrist during an unlucky fall while training for the North American Challenge Cup, but even without her dominant hand, she still made her presence known well enough that her teammates chose her as their leader.

US Lacrosse has announced the teams scheduled to participate in the 2012 Champion Challenge, a US Lacrosse event at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Jan. 28-29. The U.S. men’s national senior team will take on the University of Denver. The U.S. women’s national senior team will play Northwestern University, the University of Maryland and the English Women’s National Team.
The U.S. men’s senior team will take on the Denver Pioneers who had their best season in NCAA Division I with a 15-3 record and a trip to the NCAA semifinals. Denver will return all but seven players from its 2011 team.
The 2011-2012 U.S. women’s senior team will take on the top two finishers in last year’s NCAA Division I tournament: national champion Northwestern and runner-up Maryland. The Wildcats came out on top in 2011, 8-7, after losing the national championship to the Terps in 2010.
Representing the U.S. women’s team are six Wildcats and four Terps. Northwestern players include Sarah Albrecht ’06, Katrina Dowd ’10, Lindsey Munday ’06, Shannon Smith ’12, Danielle Spencer ’10 and Taylor Thornton ’13. The Maryland players are Caitlyn McFadden ’10, Brittany Poist ’11, Katie Schwarzmann ’13 and Acacia Walker ’05. Current college players will suit up for Team USA and play against their college teammates. The U.S. men’s team will include members of the 2010 Federation of International Lacrosse world championship team and training team; and professional-level players who have participated in previous Team USA events.

Team USA Women’s U-19 Lacrosse Defeats Australia 14-11 On Aug 13 To Win 2011 FIL U-19 Women’s World Lacrosse Championship
Team USA Women’s U-19 Lacrosse defeated Australia 14-11 to capture the 2011 FIL U-19 Women’s World Lacrosse Championship in Hannover, Germany.
Covie Stanwick (Notre Dame Prep) and Cortney Fortunato each scored twice and Jen Cook (McDonogh) added a free-position shot with about 10 minutes left to polish off the five-goal run and give the U.S. a 12-8 lead.
Stanwick and Fortunato finished with three goals each and goalie Kelsey Duryea made some terrific saves in leading the U.S. to its fourth straight win over Australia in the title game. The U.S. (8-0) has lost only one game in the five U-19 world championship tournaments — to Australia in the final at the inaugural event in 1995 in Haverford, Pa.
Team USA Women’s U-19 Lacrosse Defeats Australia 20-7 In 5th Round Of 2011 FIL U-19 Women’s World Lacrosse Championships; Advances As #1 Seed Into Medal Round
In its fifth and final game of the round robin stage, the U.S. raced to a 20-7 victory over Australia at the 2011 FIL Under-19 Women’s World Championship, securing the No. 1 seed for the medal round. Attacker Cortney Fortunato led all scorers with five goals.
Madison Acton won Player of the Game honors, thanks to her three goals, two assists and solid transition play.
Playing against one of the toughest opponents in the field, and a traditional rival, the U.S. racked up its most goals in a single game for the tournament. Defensively, the Americans held the Australians to their lowest total of these World Games.
The game was played in an unseasonable downpour, but there was no dampening of Team USA’s spirits.
“It was a great display of lacrosse. We knew Australia was going to be very good and athletic, and they have a great coaching staff with Trish and Jen Adams,” said head coach Krystin Porcella. “Offensively, we were working our lanes to goal, and defensively, we were trying to encourage our players not to let that easy pass behind to disrupt what they wanted to do.”
At the conclusion of a three-day tryout featuring more than 80 of the top women’s lacrosse players in the country, US Lacrosse has announced the 36-player roster for the 2011-12 U.S. women’s national senior team.
This team will lay the foundation for the 2013 team that will compete in the 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario.
This team will come together for several events this year including: Stars & Stripes Weekend in October, Champion Challenge in January and conduct numerous national team player clinics throughout the year at various places around the country.
