Another awesome weekend of lacrosse, how lucky are we! We are proud of how all of our teams represented our club this weekend! From hard work and effort on the field to being an impact player off of the field and supporting teammates when needed, we appreciate all of our players and how they brought their individual strength to the tournament!
An important note……to ALL of our players! Bring a notebook to tournaments (hopefully, you have a LAXJOURNAL, if not, any notebook will do!) and on the way home, take a minute to reflect. Did a teammate show a certain skill that you were impressed with? Did she inspire you to work on your stick skills or speed? Did your coach make an impact statement during half time or after a game that really stuck with you? What were your team goals after each game? Are these skills you can work independently in order to improve?
Every time you play, use it as an opportunity to GET BETTER! As athletes, we are always working on our conditioning, stick skills, team-first mentality. We can always be better!
And now, on to our Players Of The Weekend!!!
2029 Jungle : Colby Grace
Colby was enthusiastic on and off the field this whole weekend. She brought an awesome energy to the team that all of the girls thrived off of. It was so fun having Colby on our team this weekend! Great job, Colby!
2028/29 Emerald : Sydney Tighe
Sydney was phenomenal this weekend! Her grit and hustle allowed her to win innumerable ground ball battles, cause several turnovers, and push the ball up the field. Great work, Sydney!
2028 Shamrock : Alex Curry and Nora Wien
The girls on Team Shamrock played better and better with each game pulling out an exciting 9-8 victory over the Bullets in their last game of the day! Our POTW is shared between Nora and Alex as they stepped up and played a goal when our goalie was injured prior to the tourney. There were other girls who also offered to play, which is a terrific “team first” attitude!!! In addition to playing goal, Alex and Nora were a big part of the team, playing multiple positions in each game! Overall great attitude by Shamrock!
2027 White : Annabel Gale
Annabel was a rockstar this weekend and was a key contributor in the midfield. She really helped the team in transition both moving the ball down the field and slowing down other team’s fast-break opportunities. Keep up the hard work, Annabel!
2027 Green : Defensive SQUAD
LXC green played very well this weekend as a whole, making it very hard to choose a single player! POTW this weekend was our defensive squad–Addison Block, Avery Swenson, Gabby Calva and Sara Callahan. With only 10 goals against in 5 games, they were the backbone to our success and playoff run. They all stepped up as leaders, crashing, talking and stopping the ball. Awesome work girls!!
2025 White : Caitlin White and Annabel Curry
The 2025 White team had exciting competitive lacrosse this weekend, winning a playoff game to make it to the championship! Backed by stellar goaltending in both, Caitlin White and Annabel Curry. LXC 2025 White went 3-1, securing a spot in the playoffs. LXC rallied after being down 2 goals to move into the final game. The girls worked as a team to cause key turnovers on defense and we found throughout the day that when we moved the ball up the field by passing, we created many scoring opportunities. Great overall team effort!
2026 White : Bridget Donovan
Bridget did a great job in net this past weekend! She kept us in the games and made a bunch of great and crucial saves. She was able to clear the ball up all the way to our attackers with ease and did a great job of motivating the entire team. Great job, Bridget!
2026 Black : Eliza Brooks
Eliza had an awesome day in goal for us! She made a ton of big saves and held all opponents to single digits! She was a great communicator to our defense and was a crucial reason as to why we advanced to the semi-finals! After finishing a great day with our team she went and played awesome for 2026 Green as well! Great job, Eliza!!
2026 Green : Mary Murray
Mary played hard all day in the midfield and defense, wherever she was needed. She got a bloody nose after a stick hit her face, and just got right back on the field scrapping away for the ball! Mary does a great job of putting pressure on the ball on defense and in transition, and attacking the net on the offensive end. Way to go Mary!
2025 Green: Athena Farren
2025 Green made it to the semi’s on the back of a strong defensive performance collectively from our high and low defenders. We were averaging 2.5 goals per game after the first 2 battles which is simply amazing. Athena Farren was all over the field this weekend making committed slides followed by great communication. She was the anchor of a very stout defense today. Nice work, Athena!!
2024 White: Willow Cyr
Willow contributed to the success of our draw controls, which gave our team a big advantage in every game. She also had many important ground balls and caused turnovers, as well as a few well-placed goals. However, what really made Willow stand out this weekend was the Braveheart she was in during our semi-final game. She won the draw control and started her drive to the cage, but had the patience to pull back out instead of forcing a low angle shot. Willow buried her shot on the re-attack and sent our team to the finals!
2024 Green: Maisie Wood
Maisie was fearless all over the field. She was a defender, an attacker and a midfielder in almost every game we played. We were able to count on Maisie on the draw circle to come up with the 50-50 balls, she was crucial in transition bringing the ball from the defensive end to our attacking zone, and she was aggressive and a threat in the 8M. Maisie was a true team player, willing to go anywhere we needed her on the field and no matter where she was, she stood out as a force to be reckoned with. Thanks to Maisie’s contribution to the 2024 Green team, we were undefeated on the day!
