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.

“I am extremely excited to hire Devon Wills and Hilary Bowen,” said Munday, who this past January was hired to lead the USC team that will begin play in the 2012-13 season. “This is a huge step for the USC program. Both Devon and Hilary are energetic and passionate about the game of lacrosse and I am thrilled to have them join the Trojan Family.
“Devon is an extremely talented player as well as an experienced coach. She is one of the best goalies to ever play the game and her career at Dartmouth, as well as on Team USA, has provided her with top-notch playing experience. Her wide range of coaching experience has helped her formulate her coaching philosophies. Our players will learn from one of the brightest talents in the game.
“As a member of four NCAA championship teams at Northwestern, Hilary learned from one of the greatest lacrosse minds in the game, Kelly Amonte Hiller. Hilary is determined in everything that she does, as evidenced by scoring 5 goals in the 2009 national championship game while playing on a torn knee ligament, and she also excelled in the classroom. She will be an incredible role model for our student-athletes, bringing her passion and enthusiasm to them.”
