Girls lacrosse looks to improve record by David Field

Varsity coach Deb Lebel heads into her sixth year and possibly faces a rebuilding year after going 4-8 in 2012. “We are hoping some of our younger athletes are ready to take on bigger roles this year. We lost four or five games last year by two goals or less, so we know we can compete.”

Senior Kayla Kennedy will be in goal for the Eagles this spring.  “She trained a great deal in the off season so we are expecting great things from her.”  Senior Christina Pollard (22 goals last season) and junior Emily Gilman will be strong contenders on attack.  On defense, senior Lauren Coughlin (Defense award winner 2012) and junior Haley Batchelder will be called upon to help Kennedy.  

In the conference, Lebel sees Scarborough, Cheverus and Kennebunk being the strong favorites.  Windham started preseason play on April 9, against Fryeburg.  They will face Bonny Eagle on April 12 at 4pm on Field 9.  They also will travel to Massachusetts on April 17 for a play day before starting their regular season at home on April 23 against Deering High School. 

In addition to Lebel, Jennifer Sullivan coaches the junior varsity and Mary Peters assists both teams.
