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.
