Apuzzo Teams With Arsenault, Looks to Stay Perfect After Monday's AU Draft


Dempsey Arsenault was Sam Apuzzo's first pick in Monday night's Athletes Unlimited draft.

Sam Apuzzo is getting used to this whole captain thing.

Apuzzo — equal parts crafty attacker and crafty team builder — is 6-0 through the first two weeks of Athletes Unlimited Lacrosse, making her a captain for the third time this summer. She’s No. 2 on the leaderboard behind rookie goalie Taylor Moreno.

Last week’s squad for Team Apuzzo featured a distinct 2022 U.S. national team vibe — but that’s not the case after Monday night’s draft. Boston College and U.S. teammate Dempsey Arsenault was Apuzzo’s first pick, but after that, she filled in her roster with a healthy mix of recent graduates and longtime talents.
