“For lacrosse we want to go to districts because we went last year.  [The team’s goal is] to incorporate new rules because we are having a few rule changes this season, and we want to work on teamwork and getting to know how we each play and getting to use our different skills when we are playing.” said Mikayla Croissant (‘22).

Cindy Cejas (‘23) said, “Normally for the team of course going to districts, get better at your game, teamwork, and strategy. We want to get to the point where we shouldn’t depend on other people to help us, we should grow ourselves and in sports and people look up to us when we play.”
