After having their most successful season ever last year, the girls’ lacrosse team will look to improve their record this season with a brand new coaching staff. This year will mark the first year that girls will be a member of the team for all four years of high school.

“It’s so exciting, and is one of the reasons why I’m so excited for this season,” senior Autumn Schrader said. “I want us to be good after all the work we put in, and I feel that we will be able to work as a team well.”

The team is consisting of 10 seniors this year. All of them have experience and can lead the underclassmen down the right path. Along with the seniors, the team looks to have a strong season overall. Since their program was started back in 2016 they have improved their record each and every year improving every year.

“I’m really looking forward to the team this year,” Coach Budde said. “There is a lot of talent on this upcoming team. They are working very hard and putting in a lot of effort.

The team having the best record hey have ever had at 11-9. In order to do better this year they are going to have to get past tough teams such as Francis Howell and Belleville West. Working on improving, the team is finding their true leaders and role models as a team.
