Girls’ lacrosse senior night took place at West Shore on March 31.

With a tough season and rocky setups the team came together for a final hoorah.

“This year we has a lot of new people come out and a lot of girls who were very young, like we only have three upperclassmen,” senior Savannah Green said. “This put us at a big disadvantage compared to other varsity teams that have mostly juniors and seniors who have been playing for years.”

Despite the set backs Green is passionate about what the future team has to offer.

“I am super proud of how far we have come as a team this year,” Green said. “Getting to watch some of the brand new people improve so much was awesome, and I enjoyed being able to help them improve and get better on the field. As a captain and sole senior this year I had a lot of responsibilities in leading the team and helping the coaches out. But I loved doing it and I love the sport.”

Sophomore Lauren Seifert becomes emotional describing the season.

“This season was definitely rough as we didn’t win any games,” Seifert said. “It was also a good season in the sense that we grew as a team and developed the skills of so many new girls. I feel confident that we will continue to grow and become a better team, even with losing Savannah who was an important member of our offense.”

With her number 5 jersey becoming a memory in her high school past, Green sets her sight on University of South Florida to be a nurse practitioner.

“I seriously don’t know what I’m going to with myself now after school,” Green said. “I’m really going to miss it.”
