Apuzzo Drafts U.S. National Team Counterparts in AU Week 2 Draft


Team Apuzzo was the talk of Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse in Week 1, as Sam Apuzzo’s squad went 3-0 and yielded the next four captains for Week 2.

Apuzzo was, of course, among those four. Tasked with trying to replicate her early success, Apuzzo went to work Monday night in the draft. She selected three teammates from the U.S. women’s national team — Ally Mastroianni, Charlotte North and Lizzie Colson — and that familiarity could lead to more wins this weekend.

Taylor Moreno, Amanda Johansen and Dempsey Arsenault are the other three captains for this week. Here’s how they drafted their teams Monday night.
