In six days, the Vanderbilt lacrosse team begins the 2014 season on Feb. 7 at Kennesaw State. To get ready for the 19th season in program history, will spotlight all 29 players and coaches Cathy Swezey, Susan Ellis and Julie Gardner. This segment will offer an inside look into the team on and off the field.

Today, Meggie Ramzy, who wears jersey No. 6, continues our countdown. A junior from Lutherville, Md., she has played in 30 games the last two seasons. In 2013, she played in 14 games off the bench and scored two goals, grabbed six ground balls and won six draw controls. This year, she is moving from midfield to attack and vying for a starting position. She is a human organizational and development major and was named to the SEC’s Academic Honor Roll the last two seasons.
