This year is a big year for spring sports with the introduction of girls lacrosse. Being only the second time in Jamestown’s history to field a girls lacrosse team, they have high hopes for the upcoming season.

With the number of freshmen joining the team, there’s been a transition to both  a JV and a varsity team. And with the increasing interest in lacrosse, the three schools hope to all have their own teams for the upcoming 2017-2018 season.

Although Jamestown’s team includes Hampton Road Academy, Walsingham, Warhill, and Lafayette, it’s called Jamestown due to the amount of girls from our school on the team. More than 50 percent are from Jamestown. “At first I was pretty upset considering the huge rivalry,” Lafayette junior Mckayla Guerrero said. “But as the season went on, I didn’t really care what name was on the jersey as long as I got to play with the girls I grew up playing with.”   

During the season, the 20-girl team practices at the Williamsburg Indoor Sport Complex three times a week and plays one or two games, typically on Mondays and Fridays.

As a team they recognize their potential for a great season through hard work and improvement. “I would like to see us become closer and bond more,” said offensive midfielder Hannah West, which she feels will help them on and off the field.

So far this season, the girls team is 2-3. Although the team has three losses, they have all only been by one or two points. There are still high hopes for the season, and the team plans on winning more games.  “I’d like there to be more wins during close games instead of losing by just one point,” junior Mary Parker White said.

The team’s next upcoming game is against Great Bridge in Chesapeake, next Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30.
