Katie Ramsay makes an impact with USC lax
Darien’s Katie Ramsay collected 20 goals in as many games during her first season with the University of Southern California women’s lacrosse team this spring.
A freshman midfielder, Ramsay played in all 20 of the Trojans’ games, collecting 24 points on those 20 goals and four assists. Her season-best performance was three goals and one assist in a 15-10 win over Hofstra in the opener on Feb. 9. She also had a hat trick in a 15-3 win at Arizona State on March 8.
Ramsay also collected 28 draw controls, 16 ground balls and 13 caused turnovers.
USC went 16-4 overall and 9-1 in the PAC-12, capturing its first conference championship with a 12-3 win over Colorado in the title game. Ramsay scored twice in the final.
That win qualified the Trojans for the NCAA tournament, but they lost in the first round, 11-10 in overtime, to Denver.
Ramsay was a four-year varsity player for the Darien Blue Wave and earned Under Armour All-American honors as a senior last spring.
