UNC Women's Lacrosse's Draw Success and the Mystery of the Stick

Starting this season, the Tar Heels, who advanced to the title game with their NCAA semifinal win over rival Duke, designated a stick for draws, regardless of who takes them. It has a distinct yellow head, compared to the blue or white heads characteristic of North Carolina's field sticks. (Lacrosse Magazine)

Women's Lacrosse National Title Game Preview: #1 Maryland vs. #2 UNC

Very few teams can say that they have beaten Maryland in the last three seasons. They have lost once this season, once last season, and once in the season before that. UNC is responsible for two of those losses and two years ago, they beat Maryland on the biggest and brightest stage in triple overtime in the national championship game. They are not afraid of Maryland at all. (Testudo Times)

Foes Maryland, UNC set to provide repeat thriller for NCAA lacrosse title

The teams return six starters apiece from the 2013 championship game.

No team has won more titles than Maryland, going for its 13th overall. This is the Tar Heels' third trip to the championship game; they've reached the semifinals eight times, including five in the last seven years. (ESPN.com)

UNC, Terps to meet in rematch of 2013 women's lacrosse title showdown

In the end, UNC’s final goal of the first half padded a lead that rival Duke was unable to overcome. That the goal was scored by Brittney Coppa in that NCAA women’s lacrosse tournament semifinal Friday, though, perfectly fit in the tale of how the Tar Heels have returned to the national championship game. Coppa scored that goal despite playing with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Tar Heels, Blue Devils meet on women's lacrosse Final Four stage

The extra emotion of playing a fierce rival with a berth in the national championship game on the line can be a tough thing for college athletes to handle.

Turner's Take: Begin Again, Again

Carolina women’s lacrosse faces a familiar foe Friday in Philadelphia when they take on rival Duke in the national semifinal game. The Tar Heels and Blue Devils have met 30 times in the sport, and UNC secured the ACC regular season title with a 12-6 victory in Durham in April. On the other side of the bracket are Syracuse and Maryland, two teams the Tar Heels have also tangled with this season. (GoHeels.com)

Maggie Bill pursues two sports at UNC

Maggie Bill is followed by a choice she refuses to make — and one she simply doesn’t know the answer to. For her, there’s nothing unusual about her life as a dual-sport athlete at North Carolina and therefore no reason to dwell on herself and her accomplishments. And she sees no reason to make a decision anytime soon. Because when it comes to lacrosse and soccer, Bill can’t choose one over the other. She simply devotes herself to whichever sport is in season. It’s what she has always done. (Daily Tar Heel)

Turner's Take: Back Four More

UNC Women's Lacrosse overcame a four-goal deficit, getting past Penn State 11-8 to advance to the Final Four next weekend in Philadelphia. Carolina led 3-1 in the earlygoing, but the Nittany Lions tallied seven of the next eight markers. With patient offense and domination on draw control, the Tar Heels climbed back into the game. Until Saturday, Carolina had not won a game when trailing at halftime. (GoHeels.com)

Turner's Take: Begin Again

“Begin again.” That’s the mindset being taken by Jenny Levy and the Tar Heel women’s lacrosse team as they look toward hosting Penn State in an Elite Eight matchup on Saturday.

(GoHeels.com)

Turner's Take: All In

It’s been 22 years since Carolina’s men’s lacrosse team has appeared in a Final Four.

They’ll set out to change that on Sunday against Maryland. (GoHeels.com)

"We hear the noise [regarding the final four absences], but I've never thought we were cursed or anything like that," said senior attackman Jimmy Bitter. (Lacrosse Magazine)

Artistic talent helping UNC's Devlin on and off the field

As a co-captain on the UNC women's lacrosse team, Kelly Devlin certainly belongs on the cover of the team's media guide. But as a senior focusing on graphic design, she also created the cover. "I'm an artistic person, I love doing stuff with my hands,” Devlin said. “But, it's a digital world now, so I've always really wanted to get into graphic design. I finally bit the bullet and took a class." (WRAL Sports Fan)
