NCAA Lacrosse: Michigan Women’s Lacrosse “Team One” Fall Ball Video Filmed By Freshman Middie Regan Anderson (St. Margaret’s, CA)


Michigan Women's Lacrosse BannerThroughout the Michigan women’s lacrosse team’s inaugural fall season, the squad gained valuable experience on and off the field, began to build the program’s foundation and got acquainted with each of the 28 different personalities that make up Team One.

Knowing that being a part of the first women’s lacrosse team at the University of Michigan is a special privilege and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, freshman Regan Anderson (Dana Point, Calif./St. Margaret’s Episcopal School) wanted each memory created by Team One to be proximately documented. A student in U-M’s School of Art and Design, Anderson enjoys doing photography and videography in her spare time. Preferring to be behind the camera instead of in front of it, Anderson spent the fall doing just that — capturing countless Team One memories that her and her teammates will be able watch for years to come. Following the fall season, Anderson compiled some of her favorite moments into a special video for her team titled — Team One. One Team.

Anderson also wrote a blog about capturing the essence of Team One on camera:

My goal with this video was to document the “behind-the-scenes” of Michigan women’s lacrosse. Over the next four years, our class has the task of creating traditions and determining what we want the culture of this program to be. There was no doubt in anyone’s mind that we were going to work hard every day on the field, but what people didn’t know is how dynamic our team would be off the field.

Over the several weeks of fall, we learned an exponential amount about our teammates. Kim (Coughlan) for instance loves to be the center of attention. Tess (Korten) laughs at almost anything, except the Navy SEALS because “that’s not funny”. As far as I’m concerned, I won the pumpkin carving competition and being an art major may or may not have given me a leg up. Kathy Quigley is the living version of Candace from Phineas and Ferb, and Jess Angerman has an obsession with sloths that might even rival coach Ancarrow’s obsession with cats. Kelly Schlansker, no matter how hard she tries, might not ever be able to say the word ‘breakfast’. And possibly the most valuable thing we’ve learned is how to interpret Coach U’s plays on the whiteboard after she’s erased and redrawn them over again multiple times.

There is still a lot that this video doesn’t capture in just one minute and thirty seconds, like all of the “Go Blue’s!” we got from strangers walking through the airport as a team in our matching sweat suits, or our rendition of “Say My Name” that we belted out in the back of the bus at midnight as we drove through the middle of nowhere on our way to Louisville. Lastly, this video definitely doesn’t capture all of the stolen cookie incidents that occurred because according to coach Valore cheese isn’t allowed and cookies definitely aren’t.

The alumni game will combine new and old as we will have everyone back for a fun event. Finally, our game against England’s national team will be a tremendous barometer of our team’s overall progress as we head into the offseason.”

NCAA Lacrosse: USC Women’s Lacrosse Opens Fall Ball Season Facing Columbia, Manhattan And Stony Brook On East Coast Trip To New York


USC Women's Lacrosse

The USC women’s lacrosse program is set to embark on its first competitions of the fall season and will cross the country to participate in the Columbia University Fall Ball Play Day on Saturday, Oct. 5.
Hosted by the Columbia Lions’ lacrosse program at the Baker Athletic Complex (505 West 218th Street) in New York, the Women of Troy will face Columbia (1 p.m. ET), CW Post (3 p.m. ET), and Manhattan (6 p.m. ET), in exhibition games. The New York Athletic Club (NYAC) and Wagner will also field teams for the Play Day but will not meet the Trojans in competition.
On Sunday, Oct. 6, USC will head to Stony Brook, N.Y., to face the Seawolves. Last season, Stony Brook went 17-3 overall and won the regular-season America East Conference title and claimed the league’s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament by winning the conference tourney. In a historic year, the Seawolves advanced to the second round of the NCAA championships before falling to Maryland.
The following weekend, the Trojans will travel to Seattle to face MPSF foe Oregon in the NCAA Seatown Classic at the Issaquah High School Stadium at 1 p.m. PT on Sunday (Oct. 13). The exhibition game is presented by the Washington State Chapter of US Lacrosse and will take place in conjunction with the Washington State Lacrosse Hall of Fame weekend, which will honor its inductees in special ceremonies on Saturday (Oct. 12). General admission to the game is $13 if purchased in advance through http://www.SeatownClassic.org or $15 on the day of the game. The event will also include a youth and high school lacrosse clinic, which will follow immediately after the game.
The Trojans conclude the fall season with a scrimmage against the California All-Stars set for Saturday, Oct. 19, at McAlister Field in Los Angeles.
In just its second year as a varsity program, USC and head coach Lindsey Munday will welcome one of the nation’s top recruiting classes. Ranked 10th by Inside Lacrosse, the Trojans’ incoming freshman class is represented by talent from New Jersey to Georgia and from New York to California.
Last season, USC went 5-3 in the MPSF in its inaugural year to claim fourth place and a berth in the conference tournament. The Trojans opened the season with incredibly tough matchups against seven-time NCAA champion Northwestern and 14th-ranked Massachusetts but went 8-10 overall.
Midfielder Amanda Johansen received MPSF Rookie of the Year honors and was joined on the all-league first team by defender Courtney Tarleton. Attacker Caroline de Lyra received second-team All-MPSF recognition. Both Johansen and Tarleton also received IWLCA All-West/Mid-West Regional honors. The Women of Troy advanced to the semifinals of the MPSF tournament where they fell to regular-season champion Denver.
