Aly Messinger 2015 Season Outlook

Aly Messinger could be the one player that determines if the UNC Tar Heels win the 2015 National Championship. In her freshman year, she fed off double teams of Kara Cannizzaro and put the ball in the back of the net in many timely situations. Although she had a great year in 2014 it was not the progress most were expecting. Now that Messinger is heading into her junior year it is her time to shine and lead the Tar Heels in scoring.

Alex Moore 2015 Season Outlook

One of the biggest unknowns for the 2015 UNC Tar Heels team is USC transfer Alex Moore. Moore was a high school All American two years ago with Maggie Bill, Carly Reed and Sydney. Now she will rejoin fellow All Americans on the field in Chapel Hill this spring. After watching Moore play in the scrimmage against Elon I can say that she will be a contributor on this years team.

Caileigh Sindall 2015 Season Outlook

When Caileigh Sindall stepped on campus in Chapel Hill she had already been anointed as the next great Tar Heel defender. She was a high school All American and she played on the U-19 US National Team. She basically started from day one on campus and has been a staple on the defensive side of the field for the Tar Heels. While she has been a great defender, I look for her to step up and have her best year every in 2015 as a senior.

2015 James Madison Preview

The 2015 season kicks off tomorrow! The Tar Heels will be in action on Super Bowl Sunday as they take on the James Madison Dukes. In 2014 James Madison went 11-7 with wins over Virginia Tech, Penn State and Loyola (MD.). Probably the highlight of the 2014 season was only losing to Maryland 10-13. Maryland rolled most of their opponents last year and James Madison kept the game close. It is important to note this was a road game for the Maryland Terps.

Bridget Curran 2015 Season Outlook

Seeing the UNC Tar Heels women’s lacrosse jersey of #18 not on Abbey Friend is quite unusual. Friend ended up as one of the all time leading goal scorers for the Heels and helped lead them to the 2013 National Championship. Now, high school All American Bridget Curran will wear #18. This young woman is very talented and could be a force on a talented Tar Heel team.

Ela Hazer 2015 Season Outlook

After watching the scrimmage versus Elon it is quite obvious that #14 Ela Hazer will get significant playing time for the Tar Heels in 2015. Although I don’t think she got on the scoreboard she was a factor attacking the goal. Last year she was rated as one of the top 20 high school players and in 2015 she will be asked to step up her game to help the Tar Heels make a run at the 2015 ACC and National Championship.

Tar Heels Dominate Second Half of the Elon Scrimmage

Unfortunately, I did not realize the lone UNC scrimmage game started at 11:00 am this morning, Saturday, January 24th. I didn’t get to Navy Field until the end of the first half and only got to see the final goal of the half by Molly Hendrick. Elon scored two goals and the Tar Heels were not playing all that well. Marie McCool had two eight meter opportunities that did not produce any goals. I knew the game could not be completely out of hand simply by the way the Heels were playing. Upon looking at the scoreboard I saw that it was 10-6 Heels at the break.

Courtney Waite 2015 Season Outlook

The most experienced part of the 2015 UNC women’s lacrosse team is the defense. On defense, the starters will likely be seniors Margaret Corzel, Caileigh Sindall, Courtney Waite and junior Mallory Frysinger. These four have played with each other for two full seasons and will likely be counted on to slow down the high powered offenses of Florida, Maryland and Syracuse. Courtney Waite is one of the fastest players on the defense and she may likely get the assignment of guarding the highest scorer on the opposing team.

Sammy Jo Tracy 2015 Season Outlook

At the beginning of the 2014 season Sammy Jo Tracy tried to give it a go. As tough as she is, her ankle/foot could not hold up. She ended up having surgery and missing basically the entire season. She did play in a few games early so I am not certain if she received a medical redshirt. If you know, please feel free to comment below. What we do know is that Tracy will be back in 2015 ready to help led the Tar Heels to a Final Four.

Carly Davis 2015 Season Outlook

When thinking of all the talented midfielders that UNC has on the 2015 squad a name I consistently forget is Carly Davis. It might be because Carly Reed was such a touted recruit. It might be because she redshirted her freshman year in which the Tar Heels won the national titled. Who knows. The one thing I do know is that Carly Davis played a very important role for the 2014 UNC squad late in the season. This means should could play an even more prominent role in 2015.
