Trio Named Women’s Lacrosse Captains for 2015

Kelly Weis and the Crimson finished 9-7 in 2014 (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Rising juniors Audrey Todd, Tory Waldstein and Kelly Weis of the Harvard women's lacrosse team have been elected captains by their teammates for the upcoming 2015 season, head coach Lisa Miller announced today.

Todd, a midfielder from Baltimore, Md., was named to the All-Ivy League first team and the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association All-Region second team as a sophomore after leading the Crimson with 38 draw controls. She was second on the team with 29 goals, 36 points and 33 ground balls and was tabbed to the Ivy League all-tournament team after netting three goals, winning five draw controls and snaring four ground balls against Penn in the Ivy semifinal round May 2.

Walstein, who hails from Needham, Mass., started all 16 games last spring at defense. She was second on the team with 14 caused turnovers and finished fourth on the squad by collecting 20 ground balls.

An All-Ivy honorable mention choice, Weis, a product of Garden City, N.Y., started all 16 games in goal and owned the Ivy League's fourth-best save percentage (.460) and fifth-best goals-against average (9.19).

The Crimson, which concluded regular season 9-7 overall and 4-3 in the Ancient Eight, advanced to the Ivy League tournament for the third time in four seasons.
