The NCAA Women’s Division I lacrosse matchup, presented by the Washington State Chapter of US Lacrosse, takes place at Issaquah High School Stadium and is part of the Washington State Lacrosse Hall of Fame weekend that includes the Washington State Lacrosse Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 12.
In the 2013 NCAA Seatown Classic, two former Washington state high school lacrosse players are expected to take part; USC’s Alex Foreman, a former All-American and All-State player at the Eastside Catholic School and Jacky Hennegan, a former All-State player at Central Kitsap High School.
Combined, USC and Oregon have a total of five Northwest players on their rosters including USC’s Foreman (Sammamish, Wash. / Eastside Catholic School), Hennegan (Bremerton, Wash. / Central Kitsap HS) and Ceara Leo (Portland, Ore. / Woodrow Wilson HS) and Oregon’s Courtney Valdez (Clackamas, Ore. / Foothill HS), Lindsay LeMay (Corvalis, Ore. / Corvallis HS).
“The Washington State Chapter of US Lacrosse is excited to bring high-level NCAA Div. I lacrosse back to the State of Washington for a second consecutive year,” said Dave Low, president of the Washington State Chapter of US Lacrosse. “With the demand among youth and high school girls in Washington state to play lacrosse it’s important that we continue to bring the highest level of the game to the state,” Low said. “We want our kids to experience first-hand the best collegiate lacrosse players in America.”
USC and Oregon are among five Pac-12 schools that offer women’s lacrosse. The others are California, Stanford and Colorado. A total of 407 NCAA schools offer women’s lacrosse at the Division I, II and III levels, while another 319 NCAA schools offer men’s lacrosse.
