The Manhattan women's lacrosse team has selected its 2017 captains. Senior Darby Nolan (Oak Ridge, NJ) was chosen along with juniors Kara Hodapp (Oak Ridge, NJ) and Sarah Lang (Golden's Bridge, NY).
"We are extremely excited to announce Darby, Kara and Sarah as our 2017 captains," head coach Katie McConnell said. "Their leadership, hard work, dedication and enthusiasm are exactly what this team needs to take us to the next level. The pride they have in being a Jasper is contagious, and we look forward to this team going forward with them as leaders."
