From Northwestern star to Team USA anchor and USC head coach, Lindsey Munday has been at the forefront of women's lacrosse for the last decade.
Munday was a star at Northwestern, helping the Wildcats to a pair of titles as a player.
Her teams won titles in 2005 and 2006, helping wrestle the domination of women's DI away from Maryland.
After graduation, she assisted the Wildcats under head coach Kelly Amonte-Hiller.
As an assistant, she helped the Wildcats capture NCAA titles in 2007, '08 and '09, guiding players like future Team USA mate Katrina Dowd.
In 2009 Munday came into her own with Team USA, helping the team capture gold at the FIL World Cup in Prague.
In Prague, Munday set records with a 37-point showing in seven games, earning All-World status at attack.
The U.S. Women topped Australia in the FIL final, regaining gold after falling to the Aussies in 2005.
In 2011, Munday was named head coach at Southern California and featured in Lacrosse Magazine's 'Give and Go' feature: http://laxmagazine.com/teamusa/women/2010-11/news/031611_give_and_go_with_lindsey_munday
Continuing with Team USA, Munday took more of a leadership role as the 2013 World Cup approached.
She also became a fixture at events like the U.S. Lacrosse National Convention, where she presented with her Team USA mate and fellow USC coach Devon Wills
Demonstrating the techniques and style that made her one of the best in the game.
Munday and the Trojans had their first varsity season in 2013, going 8-10 for a strong showing out of the gate.
Playing in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, the Trojans made the league playoffs and fell to Denver to end their season, scheduling out of conference powerhouses Northwestern and Princeton in addition to their west coast slate.
Announced as Team USA's captain for the 2013 FIL World Cup, Munday again played well in the international arena.
The U.S. Women dominated on the road to the gold, stifling teams defensively and scoring in bunches.
Munday once again made All-World, with teammates Katrina Dowd and Katie Rowan joining her in the honor.
At the end of the tournament, the record-breaking U.S. Women had once again captured gold, beating host Canada in the finals.
Coach, ambassador, captain and leader, Lindsey Munday is Lacrosse Magazine's Person of the Year for 2014 and graces the cover of our December issue.
Munday was a part of the Northwestern team that caught a little bit of flack for some wearing 'flip-flops' for their White House visit with President Bush. (Note: her footwear was not of the questionable variety)
