This weekend, our teams won FOUR out of SEVEN divisions at Fort Devens!! Sweeping the 2024-2025, 2020, 2019, and 2018 championships for an AMAZING showing at #thechill! Laxachusetts teams were also in the play offs for the 2021, 2022 and 2023 brackets, showing that LXC is competitive in all divisions of play. This is an INCREDIBLE showing for our LXC teams and players!
Our ladies battled against other clubs from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, Maine, New Jersey and Rhode Island. A major key to success this weekend for our club comes from Assumption head coach: Coach Abbey, “Our key to success was playing for each other, not individually.” Creating space for teammates on attack, backing each other on defense and supporting in midfield transition all creates opportunity for success. Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork!
We are proud of every single player that showed up to play this weekend and we were impressed with level of play and hard work in every single division. There were a few stand out girls who showed grit, heart, hustle and their high lacrosse IQ. Selected by their coaches, these Players Of The Weekend played in true LXC fashion…
