With the 2018 season readily approaching, the Boston University women’s lacrosse team will rely on the leadership of Avery Donahoe and Maria Guerra (Hatboro-Horsham), as the duo were named captains on Monday.

“We are excited to announce seniors Avery and Maria as this year’s captains,” stated head coach Liz Robertshaw, a Strath Haven alum. “Both showcased outstanding dedication, commitment to excellence, passion, and leadership throughout the off-season, and their teammates and coaching staff wanted to recognize that work.”

Donahoe posted a breakout season in 2017, setting career highs with 33 goals and nine assists, which both ranked third on the team. Donahoe started all 18 games at the attack, leading Terriers with three game-winning goals and posted 12 multi-goal efforts.

An anchor of the defense, Guerra has started every game the past two seasons. Guerra tied for the team lead with 20 caused turnovers a season ago and also notched 10 ground balls and won six draw controls. A leader in the classroom as well, Guerra has twice been named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll.

“I believe Avery, Maria, and all of our leaders have a strong vision for the way they want this season to go and the thumbprint they want to put on Terrier Lacrosse for the years to come,” said Robertshaw. “I look forward to working with them to help their vision come to fruition.”

The Terriers will open up the 2018 season at Nickerson Field on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 1 p.m. against national runner-up Boston College.
