For Immediate Release
Ultimate Lacrosse is excited to announce the full time hire of University of North Carolina standout Charlotte Sofield.
Charlotte played lacrosse at the University of North Carolina where she was a 2x captain for the national powerhouse program. During her time in Chapel Hill, the Tar Heels won the ACC championship all four years, advanced 3x to the Final Four and won the Division I National Championship in 2016. Charlotte was a 2x All-ACC defender and named a third-team All-American by Inside Lacrosse during her junior and senior seasons.

Behind the scenes, Charlotte will assist with tournament logistics for players, families and the coaching staff.
