Women’s lacrosse greatness: conference champs and a trip to nationals
They came on strong and they finished that way: champions of the Western Women’s Lacrosse League for 2015. They were ranked No. 1 in the nation five weeks into the season. They went 10–0. In the finals, they bested last season’s champs UCLA to reclaim a title that the Broncos last held in 2010. Four Broncos made first team All-League. Goalie Maggie Von Massenhausen ’17 finished seventh in saves and fifth in save percentage. Brooke Betts ’15 was third in assists, and Dana Kilsby ’15 tied for fifth in points per game. Coach Jessica Paige earned honors as WWLL Coach of the Year in her first season. They headed to Virginia Beach for the Division 1 playoffs in May as the top-ranked team. In the second round, with the game tied and 16 seconds on the clock, Virginia Tech scored a point to win. No national championship this year—but it was a season to treasure. The Bellomy Field lights welcomed them home, their cleats scuffed and well-worn lacrosse sticks held high.
