Teams Captains for 2011 Announced by Six Schools

"I made the decision to play with this injury that is inoperable," Kidd said. "I was committed to this program and committed to playing through that injury."

Other than games started (30 over the past two years), there are few other statistics that can accurately measure Kidd's impact on the team. She routinely marks one of the opposing team's top players, and she has totaled 34 ground balls and 18 caused turnovers in the past two years.

"Being on defense, you don't always get all the glory, the chance to score goals," Kidd said. "For me, the only thing that matters is that every player on this team knows that I am committed to doing everything possible to stop that ball, and to stop the girl I'm defending."

Fairfield

Fairfield University seniors Brittany Bare (Mason, Ohio) and Kristen Coleman (Silver Spring, Md.) have been chosen by their teammates to serve as team captains for the 2010-2011 season. The duo will lead the Stags, who have captured three consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Lacrosse League Regular Season crowns.

"To be selected by your teammates as team captains is a terrific honor," said Stags head coach Mike Waldvogel. "Brittany and Kristen have been a major part of the success of this program the past three seasons. I look forward to working with them in their role as team captains as we continue to move the Fairfield lacrosse program forward and put an exclamation point on their Stags career."

Bare, a graduate of William Mason High School, is a two-time First-Team All-MAAC selection, earning the accolade each of the last two seasons. She has appeared in 53 games during her three seasons, starting all 38 games the last two years. Bare tallied a career-best 32 points during her sophomore campaign and enters her senior season with 67 total points.

Coleman, a graduate of Holy Cross Academy, begins her senior season as the program's all-time leader in points (257), goals (186) and assists (71). She is the first Stag to be named IWLCA All-Region three times, as well as being named First-Team All-MAAC in each year of her career. Coleman has led the Stags in scoring in each of her three seasons and holds the top-three single-season point efforts in program history.

The Stags have posted 47 wins over the past three years, including a perfect 18-0 mark in MAAC regular season play. The 18 consecutive conference regular season wins is the second longest streak in program and conference history. Fairfield has played in each of the last three MAAC Tournament championship games and won the crown in 2009 to make the program's first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance.

Lehigh

BETHLEHEM, Pa. Lehigh women's lacrosse head coach Jill Redfern has announced that rising seniors Lauren Dykstra and Allison Thomas will serve as captains for the Mountain Hawks during the 2010-2011 academic year. Dykstra and Thomas are both three time All-League selections and helped lead the women's lacrosse program to new heights during the 2010 season as the Mountain Hawks tied the school record for wins with 14 and established a new mark for Patriot League victories with five. Lehigh also won its first regular season Patriot League championship since 1994 and advanced to the Patriot League championship game for the first time ever.

"The team has selected two outstanding student-athletes as team captains for the upcoming year," Redfern explained. "Lauren and Allison are tenacious competitors and great teammates as well. They have the highest aspirations for their program." She continued, "(Assistant coaches) Kelley (Putnam), Erin (Goodman) and I are looking forward to working with Lauren and Allison as we begin to prepare our team for the challenges of the 2011 season. We are confident they will provide the leadership necessary to drive this team to even greater heights."
