Navy and American will meet for the 10th time as the Mids are 8-1 all-time.
Gabby Capuzzi enters her first season as an assistant coach for the 2015 season at Navy. Capuzzi spent the last two seasons working various roles as a part of the Ohio State coaching staff, including the 2013-14 season as the program's full-time assistant coach.
Capuzzi will focus on Navy's defensive end and will have an active role in recruiting.
Former All-American Capuzzi lettered from 2009-12 at Ohio State. She led the team with 42 goals, 52 draw controls, 38 ground balls and 31 caused turnovers in 2012 and is the OSU record holder for career draws (166) after previously tying the single-season draw record in 2012 and owning two of the top three positions.
Capuzzi is already familiar with the Naval Academy lacrosse atmosphere, having worked as a Navy camp counselor and instructor for the past five summers in Annapolis. She will be Navy's top assistant and be responsible for coaching the defense.
Capuzzi graduated from Ohio State in June 2012 with a bachelor's degree in strategic communications with a minor in media production and analysis. She also earned her master of science in sports administration and leadership at Duquesne University in June 2014.
