For those staff members going to the Boston Garden tonight you can purchase tickets at and search MIAA.  There is also a direct link at .  Even though the game is at 7:30pm, you will be buying the ticket that says 2:15pm as it is good for the entire day of games.  We may still have a need for some chaperones to ride fan busses so if you are interested in that please email me.  If you did email me already and didn't get a reply, please send again as I have received so many emails in the last 24 hours that some may have been overlooked.


Thanks again to everyone for their support of our athletic program and our student athletes.

NO cell phones out at try-outs or practice!!
Must have current physical, impact test, and must be signed up online. Your parents need to sign up at
Every student MUST have passed  5 full credit courses (school service does not count) for term 2.  The same goes for Quarter 3 or else you will have to leave the team. You are a STUDENT first.

Please follow me on Twitter for any updates on try-outs, schedules, etc.   @WH_GirlsLax
You should also talk to my Captains (Mik White, Mel McAleer, & Taylor McVeigh) for preseason conditioning info

I look for a few things for varsity players
1.      Hard-workers (girls that see conditioning as a way to improve and get in better shape, not as a punishment)
2.      Team players (girls that motivate each other- this is a team sport, don’t be negative)
3.      NO WHINING (complaining or whining means we do more)
4.      Hustle- even if your stick skills aren’t perfect I watch to see who hustles the most. Lacrosse involves constant movement.
5.      Commitment- you are expected to practice at game speed & never miss a practice for anything other than school-related activities (jobs are not an excuse).
