CHARLOTTESVILLE — The Virginia women’s lacrosse program will remember and honor Yeardley Love in a ceremony prior to the Cavaliers’ game with Penn State at Klöckner Stadium on Sunday, March 6.


During the ceremony, the number one worn by Love as a Cavalier will be permanently retired in honor and remembrance of her life, commitment and dedication to the women’s lacrosse program and to the University.

“I hope our fans can attend and join all of us – our team, Yeardley’s closest friends and her family – as we remember and honor her,” Virginia head coach Julie Myers said. “Yeardley’s presence and influence on all of us will be forever cherished and held deep in our hearts.”

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
