President’s Cup and The Debut

Last weekend the 22s,  21s, and 20s escaped the snow to Orlando, Florida to play in the IWLCA Presidents Cup and the Debut!  Playing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports and Champions Gate is always an exciting weekend, but this year was out of this world! Our girls competed at a high level with clubs from all over the nation. Our teams played exceptionally well and our coaches were proud to show off such talented, and hardworking teams at these tournaments!  Playing new opponents from across the US makes us mentally and physically tough. It forces us to play outside of our comfort zone and adjust on the fly. Throughout the weekend, different players stepped up as leaders in each game, we saw tremendous improvement in our team defense and we were able to learn new concepts, and put these into play on the field!

To all our players : Remember the feeling after a hard fought game. Write down what you learned from others, and what you can do better. Take notes on new plays, concepts, and adjustments your team made on the field.

A huge thank you to our families and coaches — without you, this tournament would not be possible.

And now for our “players of the weekend” who stuck out as leaders and team players in Florida…

2022 : Sorelle Lawton

Sorelle was a huge part of our success this weekend for the 2022 team. She controlled the draw, created opportunities for teammates and had some well timed goals. Sorelle is the definition of a team player. From half time strategy talks to fighting for a 50-50 ball, sorrelle gets it. She is constantly analyzing each play, and looking for ways to improve her game. Sorelle, fantastic job this weekend!

Both Michaela and Cassidy were impact players for us this weekend. On the draw during our last game, Michaela controlled the pace of the game.

Anna Clair –  It seems every tourney we are asking Anna to switch positions at a moment’s notice and she always does and never lets us down! Her work at both ends of the field while playing middle was fun to watch! Paige Curran was our offensive player of the weekend scoring goals and assisting on others in all our games while showing some “next level” creativity while doing it! And finally, Whitney Dacko had a HUGE jump in her game all summer long, but was really on display this weekend, as she made some great defensive plays causing turnovers which led to us all watching “wide eyed” as she showcased her downfield speed!

Keep hustling Syd!!

Weekend Recap: The Rise, Top of the Flight AND NE All Star!!

Going into the last weekend tournaments of summer, we would love to see all of our girls making sure they hit the wall to work on their stick work and working on their shooting techniques. It is a great time of the summer to pull out those LXC NOTEBOOKS we are always talking about (yes, those should be real!) to read your notes from shooting clinics, camps and practices that you may have noticed. A fun thing to do is also to watch college or high school level film and then go try those skills in your back yard!

Now on to our players of the weekend…..

2025 Neon : Skylar Stephenson

Skylar was a dual-threat middie, being able to see the field both on D and attack. On defense, Skylar was a ground ball machine. When the ball was in Skylar’s stick, she was able to read the opposing team’s defense and find an open teammate; whether it was for a leading pass in the midfield, a fast break, or just settled attack. Great job Skylar!

2024 Army : Alex Cardos

Alex brought great energy, enthusiasm and made a ton of STELLAR plays this week for the 2024 Army champs! While playing in net, Alex had a shut out in game one and then helped make clutch saves to bring her team from behind to capture a second victory helping her team stay undefeated through the weekend.  Alex did not stop there however, she switched to attack and helped put a ton of goals in the back on the net and was always working hard to cause turnovers and keep possessions. Alex also showed what it means to be an LXC player by always looking to pass and get better in between games!

2024 Hunter: Esme “Smesme” Coes

Esme is a hustle player with a great attitude and is always looking for ways to make her teammates look better.

Smesme’s great attitude, high energy, and team mentality are what make her our POTW!

2023 Royal : Haley Bright

Haley dominated in between the pipes both days this weekend.  She came up with some huge stops that kept us in the game and allowed us to go 4-0-1 on the weekend!  She helped the team make it to the playoffs where we fell short in our one half game against the twisters.  She was the backbone of the team this weekend!!

2023 Blue : Kate Watts and Cam Hamilton

Kate showcased her great speed, effort and shooting and has now added facilitating the offense with some heads up assists! Great to see her evolving as a player! Cam Hamilton or “Camilton” played, as always, tremendous defense all weekend with both her physical play and communication with fellow defenders. Her lax IQ was evident as she anticipated plays before they happened leading to multiple steals and into a quick transition usually leading to a goal!! Another great weekend LXC Blue!!

2022 : Julia Fortier and Katie Geis

These two amazing players have been working together, sharing the net/defensive responsibilities all spring and summer and this past weekend, they faced countless 8M’s, close free positions and man down situations.  They fearlessly led our team, kept our defensive unit communicating and held our team to a combined goals against of only 23 in 5 games, which was second place overall for the division!   Julia and Katie do an excellent job of working with each other both before and during every game and we are so lucky to have two special goalies for this team!

2022 Forest : Janey Smith

Janey was amazing at the NE All Star! She played excellent 1v1 defense, slid to help her teammates slow down the fast break, and safely transitioned the ball to our attack end. Janie made an especially large impact on the draw Sunday.  She is strong on the draw, boxes her opponents out and comes up with big ground balls!  Great job Janey!

2022/2023 Pine : Anna Rowley

Anna has worked so hard to become a consistent athlete who we can always count on. She had two non-dominant goals, countless ground balls, and a few great feeds, but most importantly she made improvements every game and did an excellent job executing our goals for our settled attack. She’s definitely someone to watch in the future if she keeps working as hard as she has so far.

2021 Green : Mikaila Kitchen

 

Mikaila did an amazing job this weekend on defense. She caused 10 turnovers in her 4 games played, causing 5 of them in one game! Mikaila reads her attacker extremely well and is an excellent team defender. Excellent job taking risks this weekend on defense, Mikaila, keep up the great work.

Lila showcased her draw skills, and finished with 2 assists against Upstate NY. Audrey and Alana were flying through the midfield and pushing the fast break in transition. They were both quick to double in the high pressure defense. Overall, our girls added a tremendous amount of intensity to the weekend, and their lax IQ helped make quick decisions during games. Great job, Audrey, Alana, Lauren, Kendall and Lila!

Uncommitted Teams

Kudos to Brooke McLoy and Anna Kenney for representing LXC at the All-America Under Armour tournament as members of the Uncommitted 2022 team. Although they have been teammates since LXC started the girls program six years ago, Brooke (‘22 Red) and Anna (‘22 White) played against each other in Maryland. Both of them were strong and aggressive on offense and defense, and played their hearts out at Towson. They are fierce competitors who made us proud! Nice job Brooke and Anna!

 

Cape Cod Invitational!

A great day for lacrosse on beautiful Cape Cod!!! Our youth players took a trip to Barnstable to play some lax on Saturday June 23!  Our girls showed off their teamwork, hustle, and stickwork on the field, and our coaches were so impressed with our high energy play!

Now, for our players of the Weekend (POTW)!

LXC 22 Shamrock: Meghan Hoffman, Anna Rowley, and Lydia Carr! Meghan absolutely dominated the draw controls for us and was a really solid defender coming up with many caused turnovers. Anna plays with heart, she’s always working hard in all areas of the field. Causing turnovers both in the ride and settled defense, winning ground ball battles, and making great cuts in transition. Lydia was a feisty 1v1 defender, but also great awareness to help and crash. She was also very confident and capable carrying the ball out of the defense and handled pressure well.

LXC 22 Forest: Claire Moniz!  Claire started off the first game (in the pouring rain) as only wanting to play attack but when I asked her to play midfield she EXCELLED!  I played her there the rest of the tournament and she crushed it!  Her speed, stick skills and lax IQ really helped carry our team on the way to becoming champs!

LXC 23 Blue: Cailin Morrissey and Bella Juliano!  Two players that stood out were Cailin Morrissey and Bella Juliano. Cailin was all over the field on defense and the ball kept finding her, she consistently made great decisions with the ball and was a leader on the field! Bella was a force all day on attack, almost single handedly winning our third game in pool play, so great to see her healthy!! Overall, great team accomplishment!!

LXC 2023 Royal: Coco Hauck and Sally Hunter!  Coco has great skills, speed and hustle! She was a standout player all over the field!  Sally hustled and played different positions when we needed help there. She also had some awesome cuts through the 8 and a couple quick stick goals that were clutch! Great work girls!

LXC 23/24 Teal: Ali Labb! Ali did a great job taking command of the defense and stepped up to be a leader that everyone looked to.  She saw the field well and was able to help her teammates when they needed it.  She, along with the rest of the defense, made some great plays and fought hard through the tough games (and tough weather) until the final whistle.

LXC 24 Army: Eleanor Rosier!  El was such a standout for us this weekend!! Every game she improved and gained confidence in the midfield. She scored goals when we needed them, and even if her shot didn’t go in, she was working hard to get that ball back! She kept on shooting and made some huge plays for us. Her dodges in the midfield looked effortless as well as using both hands beating her defenders left and right. Keep up the amazing hustle El!!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!!!
