Agility and speed are key to lacrosse, according to sophomore Sierra Purden, who, along with her teammates, has been showing up on Mondays and Thursdays at the soccer fields since Nov. 7 to prepare for the upcoming season.
According to Florida High School Athletic Association guidelines, the use of lacrosse equipment before Jan. 30 is in violation of the rules. Until then, the girls are focusing on agility and speed workouts.
“We do a ton of running, distance and sprints” Purden said. “So far conditioning is going good it’s going to improve our speed and agility, and it’s really helping to get us into shape which will be one less thing to stress about when the season arrives.”
