ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – St. Bonaventure women's lacrosse head coach Jason Levesque has announced Destinee Johnson, Andrea Hill, Julia Davidson and Savannah Clarke as team captains for the 2021 season.
"We preach to the group that you don't need to be an upperclassman or a senior, or in the starting lineup, necessarily to be a leader and we've witnessed strong leadership qualities throughout our lineup," Levesque said. "However, these four members have stood out in a variety of ways, whether it be vocally, or just by what they do on and off the field, or in the weight room, or how they go about their business on a daily basis. Our program is fortunate to have these four young women as captains of this year's team."
Johnson, a redshirt senior midfielder from Rochester, returns this spring for a fifth season with the program. She has been a key contributor throughout her time with the Bonnies, entering this year with 42 starts in 50 career games while scoring 44 goals with 24 assists for 68 total career points and on pace to break into the program's all-time top-20 in all categories this spring. Last season, she was leading the team in points (24) and goals (20) before the spring sports shutdown. She ranked fourth in the A-10 in goals and was also in the league's top-10 in free position percentage (fifth), shots per game (sixth) and points (ninth).
Hill, a redshirt senior from Monroe, N.Y., she has appeared in 30 games with 19 starts since joining the program as a sophomore in 2018 after transferring to Bonaventure. Last year, she grabbed nine groundballs with three caused turnovers in the midfield. As a junior in 2019, she ranked third on the team with 25 groundballs and second with 17 caused turnovers.
Davidson, a senior attack/midfielder from Logan Township, N.J., has started 20 of 40 career games with 29 goals and 12 assists for 41 career points. Last year, she tied for second on the team with nine goals and was among the team leaders in assists (six) and points (15), adding 11 groundballs, six draw controls and five caused turnovers. She also led the Atlantic 10 in free position goals per game.
Clarke, a senior goalkeeper from Mechanicsville, Va., has started 22 of 29 career games in net and ranks seventh in the program record books for saves (228) and tied for fifth in games started in goal. She started all 17 games as a sophomore and ranked first in NCAA Division I in minutes played as one of four goalkeepers nationally to play every minute of their season. Last year, she posted a 9.8 goals against average with 23 saves in five games.
All four players are members of the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll.
