1970: Girls’ Lacrosse begins
By 1971, the girls had a competitive schedule AND enthusiasm & skill.
This promise, now forty-five years later, is realized in the Girls’ Lacrosse team. Head Coach Annie Richards explains it this way, “Building character, teaching life lessons and working as a team are so important in developing the whole person. Love of learning is the same in the classroom as on the field. I try to inspire a passion for the sport and I would love for each of these players to love the game, it’s a beautiful one to watch and play. Honor is the same as sportsmanship for me. The honor code is one we live by each day on Main Campus and Robins Campus. Building a team is building a community in which each person is valued and appreciated for their contributions on and off the field. Lacrosse is the vehicle for these girls to work hard, push each other and depend on one another throughout the season and beyond and to create a special smaller community of people working towards the same goal.”
