Members of FHNs girls lacrosse teams hold up lacrosse sticks as a cheer before playing on April 6th. The game was against Incarnate Word Academy and had an end score of 13-11 with Incarnate Word winning.

The Lady Knights Lacrosse team has two teams for the first time in quite a few years. After years of just having one varsity team, the program had enough people to make a Varsity and JV team this season. Not a lot of other schools have a JV girls lacrosse team, so it’s an odd conference for the JV Lady Knights Lacrosse team. Sophomore Jonica Schmidt talks about the new feeling of the JV team.

“It’s super odd at practice having a whole other team worth of people,” Schmidt said. “I was used to last year, when we had the one team and we all knew each other pretty well, but I like that there’s more people in the program.”

Having these two teams also adds more competition to the program. If someone on JV is playing really well, and someone on Varsity is in a slump, they could just get moved up and down based on performance. It adds another dynamic to the sport for the girls this year, because they have to play good to keep their spots. The active competition is great for the team and the players. 

“I think that it’s a good thing there’s so much competition, it’s giving you something to keep working towards,” Sophomore Lauren Robnett said. “Last year it was only Varsity so I knew I had the spot, I have to work harder this year.”
