  • 2018 Outlook: Bulldogs Build Around Seniors after Record-Breaking Year
    February 13, 2018
    The 2017 season was filled with plenty of close calls for the Yale women’s lacrosse team. The Bulldogs had four Ivy League games decided by two goals or fewer and could have made the postseason were it not for three one-goal losses. That gives the 2018 team something to shoot for as Yale returns six players who started six or more games last season. With six starters lost to graduation, the Bulldogs will be counting on some younger players to emerge as contributors. They do have a large senior class of 10 -- led by midfielder Madeleine Gramigna (Summit, N.J.), who captains the team as it heads into its 43rd varsity season. Those seniors have seen the team make steady progress in recent years, including a 2017 season that saw the Bulldogs set school records for goals, points and draw controls in a season and knock off a nationally ranked opponent for the first time since 2010. They aim to continue those trends in 2018.
