Considering the harsh winter climate lately, it is hard to picture the warm spring months. However, they will be here before you know it, and spring means the beginning of springs sports. All spring sports begin practices on March 1, including girls’ lacrosse. Girls’ lacrosse is somewhat new to the school district, which means that the program is growing more and more each year.
There are many exciting events coming up for the 2016 season. First off, parents of the girls’ lacrosse team are starting the team’s first booster club. This club will help to set up fundraisers to bring in money for the team to buy equipment, hold an end of season banquet, senior night, and most importantly, a spring break trip to Florida! The team will be staying in St. Petersburg for five days. During the trip, the team will work on conditioning, play games against teams from around the country, while also getting free time to spend time on the beach relaxing! The team’s coach, Betsy Dougherty, will be accompanying them.If you wish to join the 2016 New Hope-Solebury Girl’s Lacrosse team or become a team manager, contact team captains Maggie Dougherty, Lia Brussock or Coach Betsy Dougherty. Open gyms are held on Wednesdays typically from 7 p.m.-8:15 p.m. and preseason workout sessions are on Tuesdays in the weight room. The team also plays indoor games at SMG in Warminster every Saturday to prepare themselves for the season.
