First-year Fort Lewis College womens lacrosse coach Kelsey MacDonald signed her first two recruits as a collegiate head coach last November during the NCAA early signing period.
Kathryn Dunn and Amanda Hoffmeyer signed National Letters of Intent to play at FLC beginning in 2012, the school recently announced in a news release to The Durango Herald.
Were really excited to have Kathryn and Amanda join the team, MacDonald said. Theyre going to be really great assets to the Fort Lewis lacrosse program.
Dunn was a four-year starter in the midfield at Heritage High School in Littleton. She earned All-Centennial League honors, and the Team 180 club player, like Hoffmeyer, has 10 years of lacrosse experience.
Hoffmeyer was a four-year starting midfielder/attacker at St. Josephs Academy in St. Louis. She was a first-team, all-state selection last year, and the two-year team captain has earned all-state honors her last three years.
FLC will begin its third season of womens lacrosse, and first behind MacDonald, with a four-game, six-day road trip that will begin March 6 in New England.
The 2011 season will be the FLCs first in the newly-formed Western Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. Joining the Skyhawks on the womens side will be Regis and new programs from Adams State and Mesa State.
Teams will play home-and-home sets with each of their league opponents, with the results determining the WILA champion. The champion will receive the WILA Cup to keep for a year.
