As spring rolls around, the Atoms girls lacrosse is ready to kick off their season. After finishing with only 4 wins and 11 losses last season, the girls are looking to make a long run in their season this year.
The girls faced off against Thomas Edison High School for their first scrimmage of the season but were unable to get the win.
The scrimmage took place at Edison High School. At the end of the day, the Atom girls’ hard work and sweat fell short to the Eagles by one.
The players felt like even though they lost it was a great learning experience. Senior
“We lost by one, but overall as a team we got better throughout the game and I’m really excited for the rest of the season,” senior Grace Hatch said.
The coaches agreed with the players that the game was a great learning experience despite the score.
“The scrimmage went really well,” varsity coach Cindy Hook said. “We really improved individually as a team throughout the game. Everyone got a chance to play and we used a variety of combination and tactics.”
To have an improved season, both the coach and the players know that hard work has to be put in.
Every player and coach’s goal is to make it all the way to states and win and also to have fun during the season. Hatch already has her goals set and ready for the 2018 season.
“Some of my personal goals for the season are being there for my teammates on the field when they need it,practicing how I want to play and improving my shot on goal,” Hatch said.
The girls first game is going to be against Washington-Lee on Thursday, March 15th.
This will be their first game of the regular season and it will also be their first home game of the season.
