A soccer and basketball player growing up, Lyndsay Carpenter knew how to shoot using her feet and hands. But a lacrosse stick was a foreign object to her four years ago.

Now, following a successful senior season at St. Francis, the Davis resident is off to Wheeling Jesuit University to continue her lacrosse career.

“Lyndsay is an athlete and they make great lacrosse players, especially ones that come over from basketball,” said Troubadours coach Kristy Wilson. “They see the game well and make especially good defenders.”

In her third year on varsity, Carpenter led the St. Francis defense, while adding six goals and a couple of assists as the Troubadours reached the 2014 North Coast Section playoffs.

“Coming to St. Francis I thought I was going to be a basketball star,” Carpenter explained. “I fell in love with (lacrosse). I can’t imagine not playing now and I am really excited to play it in college.”

And she will do just that next fall at a Division II program in Wheeling, West Virginia.

“I chose Wheeling because it is a new experience and completely different culture,” Carpenter said. “I am really interested in their pre-dental program.”

Wheeling Jesuit is coming off of the best season in the three-year history of the program as the Cardinals took third place in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference under coach Tim Florence.

“The coach and I have a great bond,” said Carpenter. “He has shown up to a lot of my games at tournaments. We have developed a really close relationship and I really connected well with the girls when I visited.

“It is a definitely a growing program and they had nine freshmen this year. I am excited to be part of it. I am going to be their low defender and will have a leadership role on the defense.”
