About Lyndsey D’Arcangelo


If you’re reading this, then you probably want to know a little bit more “about” me.

In a nutshell, I’m a writer and award-winning author from Buffalo, NY.  Throughout my 18-year career, I’ve dabbled in different avenues of writing. But for the past six years I’ve settled in nicely as a sportswriter. And I love it.

I currently write about women’s college basketball and the WNBA for Just Women’s Sports and The Athletic, and — in 2020 — launched a new Q&A series featuring honest and fun convos with some of the greatest players in WNBA history as well as rookies, vets and All-Stars in the league today, called Courtside.

I also have a new book coming out for Bold Type Books with fellow writer and friend, Britni de la Cretaz, called Hail Mary: The Rise and Fall of the National Women’s Football League. It is slated to be released November 2021. We are currently repped by JL Stermer at New Leaf Literary.

Previously,  my work has appeared both nationally and locally in numerous publications and websites including  Deadspin, The Ringer, ESPN/espnW.com, Teen Vogue, Them, The Guardian,  Allure, The Huffington Post, Thefootballgirl.com, Curve Magazine, NBC OUT, The Buffalo News/BNBlitz.com, Buffalo Magazine,  Gay Parent Magazine, and more
