Syracuse women’s lacrosse has announced its team captains for the 2022 season. The group features graduate student Emily Hawryschuk and seniors Megan Carney, Sarah Cooper and Meaghan Tyrrell. Hawryschuk will serve in the role for the third consecutive year, while Carney, Cooper and Tyrrell are first-time captains.
Hawryschuk returns for her sixth season after suffering a season-ending knee injury last February. She enters the 2022 campaign ranked fifth on Syracuse’s all-time points list with 254. Hawryschuk is a two-time first-team All-American and has been named to the Tewaaraton Award Watch List the past two seasons.
Carney is also coming off a season-ending knee injury. She was a Tewaaraton Award nominee and ranked eighth in the nation in points (69) and ninth in goals (49) at the time of her injury. Carney was voted to the IWLCA All-America Second Team.
Cooper earned IWLCA All-America First Team honors after leading the Orange and ranking second in the ACC in ground balls per game (2.29) last season. She recorded career highs in ground balls (48) and tied her career best with 33 caused turnovers. Cooper earned All-ACC First Team honors and was one of 25 candidates for the Tewaaraton Award.
Tyrrell was one of the top scorers in the nation in 2021. She ranked third in the final NCAA statistics in points (112), seventh in goals (68) and 10th in assists (44). Tyrrell, who earned first-team IWLCA All-America accolades, is just the fourth Syracuse player to record 100 points in a season. Her 112 points tie for third on the school’s single-season record list, while her 68 goals rank eighth. In addition, her 44 assists are the fourth-most by a member of the Orange.
Syracuse posted a 17-4 record last season and advanced to the national championship game for the third time in program history.
