CONWAY - Coastal Carolina women's lacrosse head coach Jaime Sellers announced the team's three captains for the program's inaugural season today: midfielder Lily Yednock, defender kaitlyn Trodden and goalie Stephanie Torosian.

Yednock, a sophomore from Columbus, Ohio, led her high school lacrosse team in points and ground balls as a senior at Thomas Worthington High School. That same year she also earned all-state, all-conference, all-district, all-American honorable mention and team MVP honors while leading her team to a 16-3 record.

A freshman from Kings Park, N.Y., Trodden was ranked as one of the top 25 high school defenders by ESPN. She also participated in several prestigious lacrosse tournaments including Lax Inception, National Draw, Under Armour Capital Cup, Best of the Beach and the Upper Atlantic tournament.

Torosian, a senior from Hopkinton, Mass., spent three seasons between the pipes at Hopkinton High School before playing two seasons as goalie at Dean College. "I feel really honored to be named a captain with Lily and Kaitlyn," said Torosian. "It's a great feeling to be part of organizing a first-year program."

"It's a lot of responsibility," said Yednock. "We're trying to set standards and traditions for this program for years to come, so we're focusing on the future of this team as well as this season."

"This is a responsibility that all three of us wanted to take as captains," said Trodden. "Our teammates wanted us to be here and be their support system and it's a responsibility that the three of us wanted to take."

Yednock, Trodden, Torosian and the rest of the Chanticleer lacrosse team will be in action Friday, Feb. 15 at 3 p.m. at Brooks Stadium for Coastal Carolina's first-ever women's lacrosse game.
