Lacrosse Magazine Person of the Year

John Danowski was a savior of sorts in 2007. Kelly Amonte Hiller pushed the envelope even further in 2008. Bill Tierney shocked us with his move west in 2009. Tim Goettelmann, an MLL lifer, showed us the true meaning of sportsmanship in 2010. John Paul made Michigan lacrosse a reality at long last in 2011. Tom Hayes was recognized for his role in growing the international game to the point where the Olympics are in sight.

Who made the biggest buzz in the lacrosse world this year?

Lacrosse Magazine is happy to announce Team USA women's lacrosse captain and USC women's head coach Lindsey Munday as its choice for 2013 Person of the Year.

A fixture for the past two FIL World Cup championship teams for the U.S. Women, Munday served as sole captain for the squad in Oshawa, Ontario this summer, leading a record-breaking group and making her second All-World team.

Beyond her on-field excellence, Munday has been a top coach as well, finishing her first season as a head coach at the University of Southern California this spring after serving as an assistant at her alma mater Northwestern under previous Person of the Year winner Kelly Amonte Hiller.

Soft spoken but tremendously well respected, Munday has risen to the forefront of women's lacrosse as a strong leader and example of how to play and teach the game properly for players and fans.
