From Press Release
Five outstanding leaders will serve as captains for the University of Pennsylvania women’s lacrosse team this season as head coach Karin Corbett announced the selection of Alex Condon, Katie Cromie, Caroline Cummings, Mo Leitner and Natalie Stefan as captains for 2018.
“We’ve established a tradition of excellence in this program, and this group of captains has had the opportunity to learn from great leaders during their first three years in a Penn uniform,” said Corbett. “Now, it is their turn to lead. They each have different and dynamic leadership skillsets, but the same common goal – doing everything they can to ensure this team reaches its potential. I am excited to work with them as we prepare for the 2018 season.”
The five members of the senior class have been a part of two Ivy League championships, three NCAA Tournament appearances and three Ivy League Tournaments during their tenures in University City. Success is not optional while wearing the Red and Blue, and this quintet understands the lineage they are now a part of.
