The girls get ready to end the 2022 season on senior night. This home game against Ambridge resulted in a Hiller win 17-3.

It’s spring again and lacrosse is finally back in action. The Trinity girls’ lacrosse team is starting to get ready for the upcoming season. 

The girls only have a varsity team this year, since they are lacking players and currently have 18 people on the team. There are five seniors: Ashlynn Powell, Emma Bowman, Becca Cox, Alice Cavassuto and Hannah Tiedemann as of March 15.

This year the head coach is Jerry Frazee with assistant coaches Amy Frazee, Coach Carli Hopkin from W&J College, Coach Becky Loulli and former player Regan Rush.  It is Coach Frazee’s second year being head coach. The team is hopeful for a better season this year knowing the coaching ethics that Frazee has. 

The team is hoping to win more games this year. The girls had a rough season last year and have been putting in effort to be able to keep up with the bigger teams they are going up against since they have limited players. 

Another main goal is getting back into the flow of getting comfortable on the field and with each other. They are hoping to improve their playing habits together as well as their communication on the field. 

Lacrosse is a fast-paced sport, and there is never a dull moment, so it is important for the players to find their flow.

The girls have been bonding by going to college lacrosse games in their free time. This has brought them closer to each other off the field and on. 

Their practices are two hours long and the girls practice various skills such as passing, catching, shooting and  other drills that are targeted toward their position. Practices take place every day weekday after school from 4 to 7 pm.

Junior defensive player, Kiley Furman, describes the practices as fun and supportive: “Everyone is really supportive and we all get along pretty well.”

There are three exchange students on the team this year, Cavassuto, Tiedemann and Junior Ariane Furchheim. 

Powell talks about the seniors getting closer over the years: “It’s all a little bittersweet. Becca, Emma and I have gone through so many challenges and injuries together, and I hope we can get a great last season.”

The girls started outside practices on March 6, 2023, and had their first scrimmage on March 15, 2023, at home against Winchester Thurston School. Their first game of the season will be on March 24, 2023, home against Moon. Come out and cheer on the girls’ lacrosse team and, as always, go Hillers!
