With the end of the season approaching at the end of the month, Lausanne lacrosse is ending the season with lots of excitement and hope for the future of the program.
The girl’s lacrosse team fields a young group of Lynx that are led by three young captains in Kolby Cohen ’23, Bella Leggett ’22 and Alyssa Koplon ’22 .
“This team is filled with a great group of emerging leaders that are developing and voice on and off the field,” coach Cayce Densford said. “Although young, this team has shown tenacity and growth in fundamentals this season.”
Co-head coaches Densford and Rachel Hammons admit that with a season off due to the pandemic, they were a little worried about the team showing up out of shape.
However, the Lynx student-athletes showed their commitment to the sport in the off-season while taking advantage of Lausanne’s new women’s locker room. In fact, there is so much activity in the new locker room that expansion is already in the works.
“Our junior leadership is strong, which is already exciting as we head into the final stretch of the season,” Hammons said. “With a full Middle Schoo and JV team, it shows the development of the Lausanne girls’ lacrosse program and ensures Lynx lacrosse is in a good place for years to come.”
The girl’s lacrosse team has big home matchups against Bartlett (April 10 and St. Benedict (April 19/Senior Night) as well as a road game against ECS (April 15) coming up this month to close out the season.
On the boys’ side, the season has been one of growth as well.
“We’re improving every day,” head coach Chase Kearl said. “Every game I continue to see strong leadership from our veterans and growth from our newer players.”
The Lynx are lead by a strong core of Jonny Roberts ’23, Nikhil Borschel ’23, and Christian Marinescu ’23 that Kearl said make him excited for the future.
The boys’ lacrosse team has big away matches against St. George’s (April 9) and St. Andrew’s (April 17) and senior night at home on April 19 against St. Benedict as they look to finish the season strong.
“It’s been a bumpy season," Kearl said. "But seeing the younger guys find their ability to lead and push their teammates has been a bright spot. The guys have shown a lot of heart and effort this year and we will continue to build on that young foundation into the future.”
