Story Links

DENVER – The University of Denver women’s lacrosse program announced today that the team has added attacker Jane Earley to its roster as a graduate-transfer for the 2024 campaign.
Earley joins the Pioneers for her fifth year of eligibility after spending the previous four seasons with Middlebury College in Vermont where she helped the Panthers to three NCAA Division III National Championships. A three-time All-American at Middlebury, Earley was also twice named the IWLCA D-III National Player and Attacker of the Year and was recognized this past season with the prestigious Honda Division III Athlete of the Year award in women’s athletics.
“I chose the University of Denver for my fifth year because I wanted to join a community that felt like a family,” Earley said. “Denver offers incredible academics, athletics and school culture, and I am excited to explore a new city while playing the game I love.”
Serving as team captain last season, Earley led Middlebury with 106 points and 32 assists and ranked second on the squad with 74 goals as the Panthers won their third championship in three full seasons. Her 106 points were also tops in the conference and the most in a single season in program history, while her 74 tallies ranked third in the school record books. She also added 138 draw controls, the second-most in a campaign in Middlebury history.
The North Falmouth, Massachusetts, native was a two-time recipient of the NESCAC Player of the Year award (2022, 2023) and was named to the IWLCA All-Pilgrim First Team three times (2019, 2022, 2023). Earley was also chosen to the 2023 Tewaaraton Award Watch List, the only D-III player to be named.
Earley finished her collegiate career with 217 goals, 290 points and 257 draw controls—all marks that rank second in Middlebury’s record book. She also added 73 assists and 68 ground balls while starting in 67-of-72 games played in her four seasons in Vermont.
Prior to her collegiate career, Earley played for Falmouth Academy and club with Boston Laxachusetts in high school and was named Cape and Islands Most Valuable Player four years in a row (2015-2018).
Off the field, Earley was an active member of the Middlebury’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and was the head of its mental health sector. She also served as a Morgan’s Message ambassador and a community supper volunteer during her time at Middlebury.
Earley graduated with two bachelor degrees from Middlebury this past spring, majoring in both architectural studies and English. She intends to earn her master’s degree at DU in organizational leadership.
