Jacksonville University women’s lacrosse announced its 2024 season captains on Thursday.
Three graduate students, Hailey Blachley, Mackenzie Boyle and Addy Tysdal, were selected by their teammates to serve as the leaders of this year’s squad.
“I can see exactly why these players were selected by their teammates to serve in the captain’s role,” said Head Coach Tara Singleton. “They are each driven with a team-first mentality, are accountable and reliable.
“They bring out the best in their teammates, while also giving the best of themselves and take a pride in all they do. We are sure to be moving in a great direction with the leadership of Hailey, Mack and Addy!”
Blachley, the Severna Park, Maryland native, has played four years for the Dolphins, and has been a steady contributor to a stout JU defense her whole career. She led the team with 20 caused turnovers last year, including a season-high three against Florida in the NCAA Tournament. In total, she has started 38 games, appearing in 53 over her career, and has 62 ground balls and 46 cased turnovers in that time. She also earned a spot on the 2022 ASUN All-Academic Team with her strong work in the classroom.
Boyle hails from Rumson, New Jersey, and has excelled in the attack for the Dolphins in her time, with some of her best games coming in the biggest moments of her career. She registered a season-high two goals and an assist in the win over Vanderbilt in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in 2021, and followed that up with a hat-trick to help JU to a win in the opening round of the tournament over Stanford again the following season. She has appeared in 36 games in her career, with 42 goals scored.
Tysdal, from Denver, Colorado, is coming off a Second Team All-ASUN season, and has also claimed multiple Defensive Player of the Week recognitions in her career. She started all 20 games for the Dolphins in net last season, registering the third-best save percentage in the conference and helped JU to another ASUN Championship and NCAA Tournament appearance. Her save percentage of .484 was also good for third-best in a single-season all-time at JU, and she is second overall in the program record book with 262 saves in her career and has the third-most wins in net, with 25 total.
Stay tuned, as the 2024 schedule and full roster will be announced soon!
