In her final game in uniform with the women’s lacrosse team at Harvard University, Micaela Cyr took the field with a feeling of accomplishment and purpose.
A popular choice for team captain, the 5-foot-6 Cyr finished her career with 101 points, including a team-high 31 goals, 16 assists and 29 ground balls as senior, earning All-Ivy honors.
The former three-sport captain at Lexington High went out in style during an 18-11 victory over Columbia.
“She just had a tremendous game, reaching the 100-point mark and setting a high standard for herself and the team,’’ said Harvard coach Lisa Miller.
Cyr will start her new job next month as a research assistant at Children’s Hospital in Colorado.
A Biology major, she plans to attend medical school and specialize in orthopedics.
