Women’s lacrosse remains confident

While women’s lacrosse starts the season at 1-6, hope is not lost as the team begins conference play on April 5 at Wilkes. Although the Eagle’s record is not pretty, their schedule thus far has been extremely tough, including a loss against 4th ranked TCNJ.

The Eagles have lost some tough battles by a few goals, but they remain optimistic, knowing that the real season has not started yet.

Senior goalie Kristy Getsay, who recently had 13 stops against Elizabethtown, believes that her team has a good shot in the playoffs.

“We are extremely confident and well prepared for conference play. I have a lot of confidence in our team and in our ability to put the ball in the net when we need to,” Getsay said.

Senior Kelly Dando expresses the same sentiment: confidence. “Each game we play, we become more of a cohesive unit. We were lucky to have so many games before conference play, I think we’re going all the way this year,” she said.

Head coach Camrin Azzarano agrees. “We feel motivated, we are willing to push ourselves beyond our comfort zones to experience the highest level of DIII lacrosse possible,” she said.

There is a lot to look forward to in women’s lacrosse. Anything could happen.

In spite of the setbacks, the preseason has had its high points. One particular highlight was the international scrimmage with Nihon University of Tokyo, Japan, a game that Eastern’s women’s lacrosse team has been hosting since 2006.

“We ran a joint pregame warm-up together. There was a large language barrier in that there was only one person who could translate for us. It has always been a great experience,” Azzarano said.
