NCAA Lacrosse: USC Women’s Lacrosse Freshmen “Impressive” Against Oregon At 2013 Seatown Classic On Oct 13 At Issaquah High School, WA
Combined, a total of five Northwest players saw action on Sunday, including USC’s Foreman (Sammamish, Wash. / Eastside Catholic School), and Hennegan (Bremerton, Wash. / Central Kitsap HS) along with Ceara Leo (Portland, Ore. / Woodrow Wilson HS). For Oregon, Lindsay LeMay (Corvalis, Ore. / Corvallis HS) and Annie Longtain (West Linn, Ore. / West Linn HS) were on the field for the Ducks.
NCAA Division I lacrosse returned to the Seattle area for a second year on Sunday, and this time two Pac-12 schools that showed off the women’s game to local fans with USC and Oregon scrimmaging in a fall-ball friendly at Issaquah High School.
With 13 new freshmen on the roster, USC coach Lindsey Munday, was encouraged by the leadership test for her upper classmen, especially with the play of attack/midfielder Caroline Cordrey and goaltender Liz Schaefer, both sophomores that kept the Ducks at bay throughout most of the scrimmage.
But it was the Southern California’s freshman class that caught the attention of the announced crowd of 1,196 including attacker Kylie Drexel along with midfielders Alex Moore, Michaela Michael and Nina Kelty.
“We’re still young,” said Munday who has 13 newcomers on a squad that finished 8-10 in 2013. “(The game) gave us an opportunity to look at our best combinations for the coming season,” she said. “We saw some nice things.”
With score not being kept as is tradition in women’s lacrosse out-of-season scrimmages, USC’s attack by sophomore Caroline Cordrey and freshman Cynthia Del Core constantly tested Oregon sophomore goalkeepers Jenna Morris and freshman Becca Katzen.
The exhibition was a homecoming for USC junior defender and former All-State and All-American player at Eastside Catholic Alex Foreman playing for the first time as a collegian in her home state in front of many of her former high school teammates.
“It’s pretty cool to see the whole (Eastside Catholic) team here. I was excited to be a part of this,” she said.
NCAA Lacrosse: Oregon Women’s Lacrosse Opens 2013-14 Season Playing USC In “Second Annual Seatown Classic” On Oct 13 At Issaquah HS
UO comes into the match with a balanced mix of newcomers and veterans with eight freshmen making their Duck debut.
Oregon returns four of its top-five scorers last season losing only Kate Cathell to graduation. UO finished last year 8-9 and 3-5 in league play taking fifth-place and just missed out on the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament.
The Women of Troy wrapped up last season 8-10 overall and 5-3 in conference plays, edging out the Ducks for the fourth and final spot at the MPSF Tournament. USC fell to Denver (17-11) in the semi-finals of the tournament. With a fairly young squad the Trojans return their top-four scorers, three of which scored 40-plus goals.
“This is an excellent opportunity for our team to be tested against an excellent conference opponent,” Beck said. “These competitions prepare us for traveling and incorporating our new freshmen into our system.”
“Our expectations are to build excellence and compete at the highest level. We are shoulder to shoulder with champions at Oregon and strive to do the same in our program.”
