The Sam Houston State University Women’s Lacrosse team ventured out of Texas grounds to continue to fulfill the shared passion of competing. The team played against Trinity University on Saturday, April 13 at 10 am and Louisiana State University later that afternoon. During the five-hour drive to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the girls were able to bond with one another.
The next morning, everyone put their game faces on and prepared for the fun, yet challenging game ahead. The fight against Trinity was not easy. They scored 11 during the first half, and the SH Women’s Lacrosse team held them at two the second half, while the defense kicked in and the offense scored three goals. “We were proud of ourselves because we are still a brand new team consisting of mostly players that started the sport this year. We were not only able to score but also hold them,” stated Veronica Fillion.
During the second game against LSU, the team played with 25 girls and most of them had played lacrosse for many years. They scored 13, but like in the earlier game, the SH team was able to score three and hold them at five during the second half.
Despite a win or loss, the SH team always walks off the field with their heads high. Every game is a great learning experience. With every competition, each team member grows closer together and gains more knowledge about the difficult game of lacrosse. Back
