Girls Varsity Lacrosse Succeeds Both On and Off the Field
by Chris Bucci on Friday, June 6th, 2014
Boasting a record of 7-8-1, the Milton Girls’ Varsity Lacrosse team had a strong season, fighting through some tough losses and pulling out a few impressive victories. Starting out the season strong, the Mustangs strung together three consecutive victories over Dana Hall, Rivers, and St. Georges. In a home game against Brooks, both teams fought hard and the overtime game resulted in a tie. After their stalemate with Brooks, the girls faced some tough losses against both Exeter and Thayer. After two home blowout victories against Lawrence and Tabor, the team went on a tough losing streak until it bounced back towards the end of the season. In its final game against Nobles, the team suffered a disappointing loss. Although the season did not go as it would have liked, the team certainly improved off of its four-win season a year ago. Led by its four senior captains, Maddie Warwick (I), Cameron Park (I), Kat Fearey (I) and Claire Russell (I), Varsity Girls’ Lacrosse remained strong and unified despite a few heartbreaking losses. Claire was selected to the all ISL team, and Cameron received an award at this spring’s M Club banquet for her leadership during all three athletic seasons. As Head Coach Anne Quigley remarked, “I’m really proud of our team. Although the games did not always end how they wanted, they girls always worked hard and played together as a team.”
Next year, a strong group of returning juniors and underclassmen will have to build upon the hard work of this season for the team to continue on its trend of success. Although the departure of this year’s seniors will certainly have an impact on the field next year, the Girls’ Lacrosse team is poised for a successful 2015 season.
