Drummond Lands Vermont Transfer 

EUGENE, Ore. – Oregon lacrosse bolstered its defense by adding Abbey Gicewicz – a graduate transfer from Vermont – to the 2024 roster, head coach Jessica Drummond announced Friday. Gicewicz is the first roster addition made by the Ducks’ new leader. 

Gicewicz played under Drummond in each of her four seasons as a Catamount and earned a prominent role in the lineup her senior season. The Orchard Park, N.Y., native started in each of her 15 games played in 2023, recording eight ground balls and seven caused turnovers. Her top performances included picking up two ground balls against Temple (Feb. 10) and causing two turnovers at Binghamton (April 1). 

“I am so thrilled to add Abbey to our Duck Family,” Drummond said. “Having coached her for the last four seasons I was able to see her energy, work ethic and love of the game that I know will have a positive influence on our program. She is a true leader on and off of the field and brings an infectious energy with her every single day. I can’t wait for her to step on campus and make an impact at Oregon the way she did at UVM.” 

Gicewicz was a member of a Vermont program that made three-consecutive appearances in the America East Tournament for the first time in program history. In 2022 the Catamounts posted a program-best record of 14-5 and qualified for the NCAA Tournament after winning the conference championship.
