Former UMass field hockey and women's lacrosse all-time great Lisa (Griswold) Lindley was elected to the U.S. Lacrosse Connecticut Hall of Fame back in January - Darien Times Sports Editor Steven Buono caught up with Lindley to discuss the honor and her successes as a player and coach.
She was a three-time all-American on the field hockey and lacrosse squads at UMass, went on to play for the U.S. Women's Lacrosse Team from 1986-1992, and was a member of the World Cup Lacrosse Team in 1989. Since then she has a 347-70 record in 21 years of coaching Darien High School and has been Connecticut Coach of the Year six times.
University of Massachusetts men's lacrosse alumnus Will Manny (2010-13) was highlighted as a major cog on the Boston Cannons offense entering the 2015 Major League Lacrosse season. Manny, elected one of the team captains, is entering his third season with the squad. Check out preview done by Lacrosse Magazine and Inside Lacrosse below:
