Urbana U. Captains, Roster for Inaugural Lacrosse Season

URBANA, Ohio Just a couple of months before the Blue Knight women's lacrosse team takes the field for the first time in Urbana University history, first-year head coach Sheyna Grabowski announced the selection of the program's first four team captains.

Leading the team in their inaugural season will be an eclectic group that includes a freshman, a sophomore, and two juniors representing four different states.

Alyssa Ashcroft, a junior from Amherst, New York, will sit out a year after transferring from Erie Community College, but her vast playing experience and outspoken nature made her a prime candidate for captaincy.

Fellow junior and transfer Tiffany Angelo joins Ashcroft as a captain after enrolling for the spring term. Angelo comes to Urbana from Orlando, Florida and Valencia Community College.

Sophomore Nora Boerger (Milford Center, Ohio/Fairbanks HS) is a newcomer to the sport of lacrosse, but she's already a veteran student-athlete at Urbana. Boerger is currently in her second season as a member of the women's basketball team. This past fall, she made great strides on the lacrosse field after deciding to take up the sport when the University instituted the new program a year ago.

The fourth captain, freshman Quintina Mengyan, comes to Urbana University from Brighton, Michigan, where she played goalie on the 2010 Division I state runner-up Brighton Bulldogs.
