A revival is underway for the Linfield women’s lacrosse program in 2017 under the leadership of coach Sean Hansen.
Though the roster is young with only one senior and nine freshmen, the group is enthusiastic and buying into Hansen’s rigorous training regimen and intricate game strategy.
Sophomore Mae Seifert is expected to shoulder the scoring load, with help from Amber Kaholoaa, Alex Jensen and Molly Herrera.
Among the newcomers is Kylee Duey, an experienced goalkeeper from Newberg and the daughter of Linfield certified athletic trainer Duane Duey.
In addition to Seifert and Kaholoaa, the list of returning players from last season includes Jordan Lumley, Sarah Stuck and Cole Lewis. Three athletes who compete with the soccer team in the fall have joined the club: Sarah Bailey, Olivia Hollenbeck and Amidee Colleknon. The trio bring poise and a winning attitude to the field.
Helping Hansen coach is assistant Brittany Hartmann, a four-year player at Pacific who coached the sport at Glencoe High School and George Fox University. Hartmann is in her third season on the coaching staff.
