With the top four ranked teams: #1 Maryland, #2 BC, #3 UNC, and #4 Northwestern playing for a national title, and all of the Tewaaraton Finalists playing on these teams: Sam Apuzzo (BC), Dempsey Arsenault (BC), Selena Lasota (Northwestern), Jen Giles (MD) and Megan Taylor (MD), Memorial Day weekend will be a showcase for the top women's lacrosse players in the country.
Boston College's senior leadership extends beyond the superstar trio of Apuzzo, Arsenault and Kent, to six Eagles who have made significant contributions and played in the Final Four: Elizabeth Miller, Christina Walsh, Taylor Walker, Brooke Troy, Hannah Hyatt and Lauren Daly.
What makes the BC senior class so dangerous is their chemistry and genuine support for one another on and off the field. Apuzzo and Kent have the ability to read each other's mind and instinctively know what the other needs to score a goal. The telepathic chemistry extends to Arsenault in the midfield and BC's other top players on attack: Taylor Walker, Sheila Rietano, Cara Urbank and Jordan Lappin.
When Apuzzo, Kent and/or Arsenault are face-guarded or double-teamed, look for other Eagles to step up and put the ball in the cage - including Brooke Troy breaking the ball out of the defense and coming all the way down the field to score.
