Led by stars Maysn Whitten, Wynston Archer, and Lizzy Shim, the girls lacrosse team is working on perfecting the details in order to have a winning season.

The girls lacrosse team starts off being 1-3, having lost to St. Gertude’s, STAB, and St. Cathrine’s, with Steward their lone win thus far. Despite this record to start the season, they are making the most out of it. Junior Mary Beattie says her favorite person to play with is Masyn Whitten because she is funny and encouraging to her.

Mary says, “STAB ran a fast offense so we struggled on defense, but overall it was a good game because it was our first game with everyone back.” They then squared off with Steward in a tight match. “We came together as a team in the second half and Lizzy Shim shot the winning goal in the last 20 seconds to give us the win”, says Mary.

For pre-game rituals, Mary often sleeps on the bus to get her laser focused and rested for the game. This year the goals for the team are to be more verbal when playing so they are on the same page and be smart.

As the season moves on, the goals they set for themselves will come into play more and more. With a tough road ahead, they work hard at practice, so that when game time comes, it’s easy.
