Georgia Bulldogs Women's Lacrosse Team Misses WCLA Tourney Field Despite Solid Season

Despite being ranked 13th in the latest WCLA poll, the Georgia women’s club lacrosse team did not make the 16-team Division I U.S. Lacrosse Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates National Championship bracket. We all had our fingers crossed, though.

The WCLA field includes top-seeded Colorado State, third-seeded Michigan, fourth-seeded Florida, No. 5 Colorado, No. 6 Central Florida, No. 7 Texas, No. 9 UCLA, No. 11 Brigham Young, and No. 12 Santa Clara, all of whom appeared on the Lady Bulldogs’ slate this season. The Georgia women went 4-6 against the nine national championship contenders they faced, and five of their six losses to tournament teams were by two or fewer goals. The Red and Black’s 10-7 record notwithstanding, Georgia was a solid team in 2012, and, although the Lady Bulldogs lose a half-dozen seniors (including Taylor Lugash, Michele Manis, and Kaitlin Shumate), returning leaders like newly-named captains Kelly Arnhart, Lindsay Brinker, and Lisa "Avatar" Riondet, along with a number of promising rising rookies, offer hope for next year.

The Georgia men’s lacrosse team, meanwhile, is preparing for Friday night’s postseason rematch with the Gators.
