LEXINGTON, Va. (WFXR) — The women’s lacrosse season might be over for Washington and Lee. But the legacy of the Generals’ seniors will remain for a long time. The fifth ranked team in the country made it all the way to the NCAA quarterfinals before falling to fourth-ranked Gettysburg. The Generals completing the 2022 campaign with 19 wins and three losses, tying the program record for most wins in a single season. That success made possible by the team’s nine seniors, who’ve been through a lot during their time in Lexington.

“They’re a really special group. Coming out of COVID, they’re the ones that put us back together. I’m getting emotional about them. They’ve been tremendous in terms of helping us rebuild our culture and getting us back into the standard of who we are and what we do. Those nine seniors, some of them play a lot of minutes, some of them don’t but every single one of them has a piece in getting us back together and getting us where we are now post-COVID,” said Washington and Lee women’s lacrosse head coach Brooke Diamond O’Brien.

This year marked the Generals’ 12th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
