Last season was uncharacteristic for the Eastern Women’s Lacrosse team. After being a dominant program for years, Eastern didn’t finish with a winning record. This season, head coach Camrin Azzarano wants a winning season.
“We are looking to compete,” Azzarano said. “We want to play the game well. That is really our goal.”
Playing the game will be key for Eastern, as they look to erase a year of struggles when they finished with an 8-10 overall record. Last season, the team allowed 10 goals a game. That has to be fixed this season.
“We were in a slide,” Azzarano said. “People on the outside see the record. I know there is a lot more we can work on as a team.”
As a team, Eastern looks to overwhelm opponents with the quick attack that have on the front-line.
Senior Grace Griffith recorded 71 goals last season and looks to add to her already stellar Eastern career.
“I think this year we are standing on more common ground,” Azzarano said. “These girls know how to play lacrosse.”
Conference play opens up on March 16 against Lebanon Valley College.
