Emily Knapp joins the Cardinals for the 2018 season after graduating from the University of Colorado in May. She was a four-year member for the Buffaloes, playing attack and midfield at the Division I level.
"We are so excited for Emily to be joining our program," said Williams. "At Colorado, Emily experienced a brand-new program during her freshmen year and finished off her career with a historic season in the NCAA Tournament. She understands what it takes to compete at the highest level, and we are looking forward to what she will bring to our program."
The 2014 campaign – Knapp's first with the Buffaloes – was the inaugural season for the Colorado women's lacrosse program as it finished 11-8 overall. The team posted a winning record in each of its first four seasons, which was capped off by a NCAA Tournament appearance this past spring as the Buffaloes finished 16-4 overall.
Knapp – a New Jersey native – appeared in four games each season, and registered four goals and one assist for five career points.
