Juniors Abbey Holbrook and Megan Wilson rotate in a 2014 season game against Saint Francis High School.

Carlmont’s girls lacrosse (LAX) team has begun prepping for their rapidly approaching season. Returning members have high expectations for their level of play in the upcoming weeks.

In a recent tournament held at Menlo School on Feb. 21, the Lady Scots emerged victorious against high schools like Woodside, Mercy, Pioneer, Harker, and Salinas.

“We won all five of our games against teams that we will be playing later in the season,” said sophomore Caroline Concilla. “We played well as a team and everyone contributed.”

The wins gave the Lady Scots the confidence needed to maintain the level of play throughout their upcoming games and for the entirety of the season.

“In the tournament, we won more games than we had in the last season altogether,” said junior Claire Wheeler.

This season, the Lady Scots were placed in a lower division than they had played in last year. As a new and completely inexperienced group of girls learning the basics, the upper division of play did not work in Carlmont’s favor. This year, with returning players, a better understanding of the game, and amateur opponents, things are looking brighter for the girls LAX team.

It is beneficial that some members actively play for a club team outside of high school.

“I play on a traveling club team called BearLax, which is located in the East Bay,” said Concilla.

The girls have been working hard in practices to prepare for challenges that may occur in future games.

“Our coach has a focus toward conditioning and getting into shape, which is important. Speed is a key aspect to excelling at lacrosse,” said sophomore Megan Olazar.

With the right training and mindset, the Lady Scots are confident in their ability to play well this upcoming season.

“As opposed to last year with barely enough girls to form a team, we now have experienced players who will make the team stronger overall,” said Wheeler. “Everyone should improve.”
