Emily Stankaitis ’13 had the opportunity of a lifetime over the summer. She was selected as one of two goalies to represent the New Zealand national team at the 2017 Women’s Lacrosse World Cup Tournament in Guilford and Surrey, England.
Stankaitis and the New Zealanders were a perfect 3-0 in the pool play round with convincing wins over Ireland, Sweden and Colombia. After winning its first championship round game, New Zealand dropped a pair of games and finished in eighth place for the tournament, which featured the top 25 teams in the world.
Stankaitis was an All-America selection as well as the Connie Harnum Award winner in 2013. She was also the Landmark Conference Senior Scholar-Athlete Award winner that year.
