Freshmen provide hope for lacrosse
Last season, the team finished with two wins and eight losses.
In 2010, recorded successes included a three-day trip to the Midwest, where the team won two out of three games.
Since former players Christina Crane, class of ’09 and Ashley Johnson, class of ’09, graduated, a number of new players have joined the team.
Now, the Wildcats are anticipating an exciting season.
“I can’t wait for this season,” junior Taylor Fisher said. “We have a lot of talented players on our team, and this is the year to see all our hard work payoff. We got a bunch of freshmen who have been playing lacrosse for years, and we only lost two seniors.”
Many of the players are expecting a better season and are hoping to win more games compared to last year.
“I hope our record will improve from last year’s. The last few seasons have been building years,” Fisher said. “Now, it’s time to show our improvement in our record. I want our team to have a winning season this year.”
Sophomore Katie Keith, who plays defense, said she is also expecting a better season. She believes that the high number of incoming freshmen playing will greatly help the team.
“I hope to win more than two games,” Keith said.
Sophomore Mariah Jones said she thought enthusiasm would drive success in the season.
“Dedication in players and passion for the sport [will be a factor to win] and how badly they want it as individuals,” she said.
Last season the Wildcats ended with a record of two wins and eight losses. And with only two former players graduate, the new team is similar to the previous season.
The new season starts on March 12 against Pacific University at Sunset High School in Beaverton, Ore. Later in the season, they will also have a four-day tournament in California.
