GETTYSBURG, Pa. – A trio of seniors will lead the Gettysburg College women's lacrosse team into the 2013 season as Lindsay Menton (Ellicott City, Md./Glenelg Country School), Kat Nestor (Darien, Conn./Darien), and Lindsey Robinson (Potomac, Md./Holton-Arms) have been selected team captains.
The trio's contributions to the team have been undeniable over the last three seasons. Since 2010, Gettysburg has logged a 56-10 overall record, including 26-1 in the Centennial Conference. The team claimed the conference title last spring and has appeared in the NCAA Division III Tournament three times, highlighted by the program's first national title in 2011.
Menton has appeared in 63 games in the midfield over the last three seasons, including starting 42 of the last 44 contests. She has contributed on both sides of the field, logging 40 career points in addition to 71 ground balls, 37 draw controls, and 34 caused turnovers. An outstanding student as well, Menton was named the 2011 NCAA Elite 88 Award winner for having the highest cumulative GPA at the national championships.
Nestor rebounded from a torn ACL as a freshman to start all 44 games in the backfield over the last two seasons. She has accumulated 80 ground balls, 24 draw controls, and 32 caused turnovers in her career. In 2012, she logged a career-high 15 caused turnovers and helped the team rank 10th in the nation in scoring defense.
Robinson enters her final campaign as one of the top returning scorers in the nation. A third-team All-American in 2012, the senior attacker is coming off her best season to date, putting up career highs for goals (44), assists (40), and points (89). Robinson enters 2013 ranked fifth in school history in assists (87) and 11th all-time in points (189).
Gettysburg posted a 19-2 overall record in 2012, including a perfect 9-0 in conference play. The Bullets claimed the program's seventh Centennial championship and went to the NCAA playoffs for the 11th consecutive season.
