Girls lacrosse is making an impact

The Bishop Blanchet girls varsity lacrosse team is off to an auspicious start, promising that they will only grow onward and upward.

The team currently holds a 3-2 record in league play, with some big wins under their belt.

“We won both of our games this weekend, and by a lot,” said senior Emily Wurdeman. “The team is really coming together well.”

The varsity squad defeated Bethel High School 16-3, Garfield 11-3, and Ballard 12-0. These high-scoring victories show the strength of the team’s scoring ability, midfield transitions, and defense.

“So far it has been a fun season and we all have improved so much,” said junior captain Molly Olney. “I think we still need to work on playing as a team and recognizing the right opportunities during the games.”

Despite any setbacks the program is currently facing, their record is one to be admired. Only three years old, the burgeoning Brave lacrosse program shows  potential.

“In just three years we’ve come from not having a team to playing well enough to beat Ballard and some other teams who previously beat us,” said Wurdeman. “Since I am the only senior on the team, the same group of girls will continue to grow next year and only improve more.”

With such a young program already showing this promising success, the future looks bright for Brave girls lacrosse.

The Braves play next on Tuesday, March 27. Their game is against Tahoma High School at Maple View fields at 7 pm.
