Overview

Lacrosse - Girls 1st Team

Brooks plays in the intensely competitive Independent School League where the varsity girls lacrosse team is thriving due to extraordinary and selfless teamwork. In the 2017 season, the team averaged goals from seven different players in each game, and the defense was characterized by relentless double teams and great communication.

Outstanding teamwork can also lead to individual honors, and in recent years Brooks players have earned recognition on the local, regional, and national level, including all-ISL and All-American team placement.

The high level of instruction offered, combined with the intense competition of ISL play, prepares Brooks graduates well for the college game. Brooks alumnae have gone on to compete and to earn honors at top Division I and Division III schools in the Ivy League, NESCAC, and the ACC such as Kenyon, Bowdoin, Trinity, Hamilton, Connecticut College, UPenn, Virginia, and Northwestern.

In recent years, Brooks girls lacrosse has begun its season with a spring break trip to Florida. Last year, thirty girls traveled to Orlando for spring training at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. The trip allowed for plenty of practice time and competition with top high school programs from across the eastern seaboard. The girls also had a lot of fun with team building exercises and adventures in the Disney parks.

The 2017 season was Brooks’ best in several years, and the program is aiming to be atop the ISL again soon. If you are interested in playing lacrosse at Brooks, we hope that you will come for a visit on campus.
