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 2018 season, 14 different players chipped in with goals, the defense was characterized by relentless double teams, fast footwork, and great communication and the goaltending was tops in the league.

Outstanding teamwork can also lead to individual honors, and in recent years Brooks players have earned recognition on the local, regional, and national level. In 2018 alone, we had three All-League, three honorable mentions, an All-American, an Academic All-American and Kathryn Delaney '18 took home the Jackie Pitts award.

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 U-Albany, Holy Cross, Tufts, Denison, 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 Tampa to work with the SpringBreak LAX program. 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, practices on the beach and a trip to the aquarium.

The 2018 season was Brooks’ best in several years, and the program has positioned itself at the top of the ISL. If you are interested in playing lacrosse at Brooks, we hope that you will come for a visit on campus.
