Myers Announces Women's Lacrosse Captains
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia head women’s lacrosse coach Julie Myers announced that seniors Kaitlin Duff, Whitaker Hagerman and Brittany Kalkstein have been selected by their teammates as captains for the 2010 season.
“Kaitlin, Whit and Brittany are great players with a tremendous amount of experience,” Myers said. “We’re off to a great start this fall and they’ve been a huge part of our success. The team responds well to them and they communicate well with the coaching staff. We are excited for each of them and for all of us to get the year started.”
Duff, an All-American midfielder from Bethesda, Md., has started every game of her career. The anchor of the Cavaliers’ midfield, Duff is a two-time all-region honoree and two-time All-ACC team member. She was named to the 2009 ACC All-Tournament team and led the league in caused turnovers last year, finishing the season ranked ninth nationally.
Hagerman, a redshirt senior from North Andover, Mass., started all but one game at attack last year. Drawing the attention of some of the opposing teams’ top defenders, Hagerman was able to tally 25 goals for the Cavaliers last season.
Kalkstein is an All-American defensive midfielder hailing from Baltimore, Md. An All-South Region honoree, Kalkstein led the ACC and finished the season ranked sixth nationally in draw controls. She broke her own single season mark in the category last spring, and currently sits second on the career records list.
Virginia will host two fall ball games in October. The Cavaliers will face Notre Dame on Friday at 4 p.m., and Georgetown on Friday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m.
