The Cambridge Lady Bears lacrosse teams are continually improving through their season, with the Varsity team sporting a 12-0 record through March and the JV team having a very successful season at 10-2.
"I am very proud of all 33 girls in the program. The team chemistry is apparent on and off the field; no one wants to let anyone down. The girls worked extremely hard during the off season and that dedication and commitment thus far has paid off," said head coach Pam Masinko.
For the varsity Lady Bears, nearly 75% of the goals scored this season have been assisted, showing the unselfish mindset of the team. In addition, the defense is holding their opponents to less than 13 shots per game, with the goalie saving nearly 50% of shots on goal, demonstrating the tenacity and toughness of the defensive unit.
A highlight game for the varsity team was against area rival Blessed Trinity in March. Over the last 2 years, this matchup has gone into overtime and been decided by one goal (both times won by the Lady Bears). This year, the team was physically as well as mentally prepared for this matchup, as they came out strong and never let up. The final score was 13-3, and the Lady Bears sit atop the region standings.
After spring break, the varsity team will play Mill Creek (5:55pm April 14th) and Holy Innocents (7:00pm April 16th) at home.
The varsity team will then be traveling to Philadelphia in late April, where they will play teams from Philly and New Jersey. "This trip will be a great opportunity for our girls to play teams in the heart of lacrosse country, where the play is aggressive and extremely physical," said Masinko.
The team plays Riverwood at home April 28th (5:55pm-Senior Night) and closes the regular season with rival Northview at home May 1st (5:55pm).
The team would love to see lots of fans in the stands for their last regular season games.
