Lacrosse Magazine, the flagship publication of US Lacrosse, has named U.S. Women’s National Team captain and University of Southern California women’s lacrosse head coach Lindsey Munday its 2013 Person of the Year.
One of the most talented players in the game today, Munday scored nine goals and handed out 14 assists to earn All-World Team honors as an attacker in leading Team USA to a record seventh gold medal with a 7-0 mark in the 2013 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Cup in Oshawa, Ontario. Elected captain by a team full of All-World players, collegiate All-Americans and Tewaaraton Award winners, Munday led the Americans to the World Cup’s most dominant run, as they outscored opponents by an FIL record 13.2 goals per game.
