There are many reasons that a player will come to Capital Lacrosse Club. For most players, at the top of that list is the pursuit of playing lacrosse at the collegiate level. There is no guarantee for any girl that she will get there. However, the hard work, dedication, accountability and support that come with being a member of Capital help a high percentage of our players achieve their goals. Over 90% of seniors that played for Capital in the Class of 2018 have committed to play lacrosse in college. Below are more than 80 of the schools that our players are either committed to, played for in the past, or currently play for.
Our alumnae have gone on to significant college careers at many of the nation's most prestigious Division I, II and III programs as well as National Teams around the world. Just this past year (2018), we saw Capital alumnae playing big roles in both the NCAA Division I finals AND the DIII Final Four!
You will also find Capital alumnae playing on the U.S. Senior Women's National Team and in the Women's Professional Lacrosse League (WPLL). Capital alum, Kristen Gaudian, was nominated for the prestigious Tewaaraton Award, given annually to the most outstanding American college lacrosse player. In 2017, we saw Capital alumnae playing in both the NCAA Division I finals AND the FIL World Cup championship games.
Following is a partial list of more than 300 Capital players through the years, along with the high school they attended, their high school grad year, and the college they committed to play for. Coming from more than 50 different high schools over the years, Capital players have gone on to play at more than 80 colleges and university to include every Ivy League school, West Point and The Naval Academy.
We applaud these strong women as they pursue their passion on and off the field. They are the reason we proudly say #GoCapital!
