Girls' Varsity Lacrosse

For girls’ varsity lacrosse seniors, the past four years have been a journey. They have been the cornerstone of a revitalization of the program, and they have seen their field transform from natural grass to one of the finest synthetic turf complexes in New England. They have also witnessed many former teammates go on to play at the collegiate level. After graduating a significant portion of their team last spring, the 2014 edition of the girls’ varsity lacrosse program is filled with promise and its captains see a bright future ahead.

Four-year senior and tri-captain, Julia Sargent, acknowledges the team is very young, but has already shown significant improvement, “We have a lot of new, young players this season, so everyone is learning how to play together and learning our system. But we can already see so much improvement between our first few games and our last two games where we played some of the toughest teams in the league.” As the team enters the heart of its schedule, the growth of its younger players will be essential. Sargent adds, “We are a strong and athletic group of girls that continues to get better every day so we can compete with the top teams in our league. We know that the next time we see these teams during the second half of the season, we will be a much improved team.”

Having the team peak at the right time will be critical as this is the first year of a Lakes Region League playoff system. Sargent notes, “I hope that we will make it pretty far in playoffs this year, if not to the finals. Playoffs is a big deal because they are new this year for us and I know our whole team is very excited to play in them.” Coaches and players alike recognize the potential within this group and are very excited about what the next month of competition will provide them in terms of experience.

The next opportunity to gain some of that much valued experience comes Wednesday when the team hosts Tilton School at 1:30 pm, and Kimball Union Academy on Friday night under the lights at 6:00 pm as a part of Spring Family Weekend festivities. Best of luck to the girls this week and into the remainder of their season!
