Girls LAX encounters building season New coach and 5 returning varsity players begin a new season with a 1-5 record The girls varsity lacrosse team is undergoing a building season, having only five returning players from the previous year. “It’s a growing year for us,” said coach McPherson. “We have four returning field players and one returning goalie. So it’s a big change for us. We’re a really young team, [and] we have kids who have
never even played before.” Senior Natalie Foerster has been on the varsity lacrosse team for four years. She hopes this time around, the girls’ can come together as a team. “It can be a rough start just because some of the girls have never played before and we don’t have enough to field two full teams, so [there] will be
girls on varsity that don’t have as much experience.” Senior Britanny Grace is one of the five returning players this season. She believes that with the right attitude, they can have a good experience. “It all depends on our attitudes. We can be really good, but if we’re not bonding and work well together then
we’re not going to do very well,” said Grace. The upcoming games for the girls’ are on April 14th against St. Mary’s Academy at 5:45 p.m. and on April 15th against Overland at 4:30 p.m. briana evans Huddle: The team takes a time out during a match against Cherokee Trail High School.
