Please support our team as we prepare for the WCLA DI National Tournament in Salt Lake City, UT from May 10-13! We have just accepted our bid, making us 1 of the 16 teams to comptete at Nationals this year!!

We are a completely student-led team. Without coaches, scholarships, sponsors, etc., we are very special in that all our girls play for the love of the game and our love for each other. This makes our team really unique - instilling a sense of responsibility, commitment, and hunger-for-success that fuels our extraordinary dedication. We balance evening practices 3x a week with heavy course loads, part-time jobs, and extensive club involvement (our team represents 29 additional clubs and organizations!!).  Last year we nominated three All-Americans, and three of our girls received Academic All-American Honors.  We brought home the DII National Titles in 2012 and 2014 - we know what it takes to come out on top. 

Aside from the minimal funding we receive from our university, we all pay our own way. Between equipment, refs, hotels and other travel costs, tournament fees, and more, our expenses really add up. Throughout the year, we conduct fundraising efforts through dues, working with youth lacrosse, platelet donation, supporting UNC's varsity sports, selling merchandise, and even hosting our very own home tournament. However, we need YOUR  help to ensure we have the financial resources to bring the DI National Title home from Salt Lake City this Spring. 

Between hotels, round-trip flights, and rental cars, we estimate these basic necessities alone to cost over $12k. We are continuing our fundraising efforts harder than ever, but we would greatly appreciate anything you may be able to contribute to help us reach our goal. 

Thank you in advance - from the bottom of our hearts. 

GO HEELS.

*Please note that the under the fundraising goal, it only says "on behalf of Julie Wulforst" because we do not have a club account in which we can easily directly deposit funds. However, 100% of all donations will be transferred immediately into our club account.

WOW. Thank you guys so much for your generosity. With over 39 donors so far we are over 35% to our goal. We are so thankful to have such supportive family, friends, and alumni :)

We are practicing through this week and weekend (on top of finals) to ensure our competitive edge is sharp before we fly out to Salt Lake City - in EIGHT DAYS!

EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS! Even if you have already contributed financially or currently are not able, please help us get the word out by sharing this link!

THANK YOU & GO HEELS!

As of 10:15pm last night, we were officially offered a bid to the MAWLL Regional Tournament!! We are hosting the tournament in Chapel Hill, NC. We worked really hard last season to secure a spot as the 2017 Regional Tournament host to help us save on travel expenses, knowing that the 2017 National Tournament would likely be across the country and therefore very expensive.

This bid DRAMATICALLY increases our chances of making a national tournament appearance. Our league, MAWLL, is arguably THE most competitive league in the nation. FOUR Division I teams go to MAWLL Regionals, and out of those four teams, the team who wins Regionals gets an "Automatic Qualifier" bid. In past years, two additional teams that attended the MAWLL regional tournament get the "at-large" or wild-card bids, since our league is so competitive.

When we were notified about our Regionals bid last night, the energy among our team was indescribable. We want this more than anything and are going to work tirelessly over the next two weeks to ensure our success.

Please again consider donating to our student organization to help us offset the immense cost of a national tournament appearance (and potential CHAMPIONSHIP)!!
