As the end of the year is approaching, the spring sports season has also come to a close. Varsity Girls Lacrosse has had another hard-fought season in a very competitive varsity league. They’ve played against schools such as Bellaire High School, St. Agnes, Stratford High School and many other competitive teams. This was their second year in the new varsity league as many of the players continue to grow and adapt to the gritty style of play. It is emotional, however, to see the team’s only two seniors, Francesca Romero and Dede Haas, leave the team. Both of the girls have been playing since their freshman year and have watched the team grow.
“It’s really awesome to see the team improve every year. Everyone’s always excited to practice and play the games,” Romero said. Romero and Haas were honored after their last home game, also known as Senior Night, which is a time to commemorate the girls’ athletic accomplishments and visions for life after high school. Although the girls only won a few games, they all know it will take time to shape themselves into a true varsity team since the rest of the league has been highly competitive for longer.
The boys team has also attained success as they are now in the playoffs of their league. As they are now in the off-season, the girls are able to support the boys team and cheer them on. Overall, the lacrosse season was successful for both teams; it is a time of growth that will immensely help solidify the girls’ competitive nature for their third year in the league.
