Overview

Lacrosse - Girls 2nd Team

Brooks girls’ lacrosse is rapidly establishing a tradition of excellence in the Independent School League (ISL), one of the most competitive girls’ lacrosse leagues in the northeast.

The team's success is founded on the value of team over individual, a philosophy that can be seen on the field in the form of hustling team defense and a balanced attack. Last year's squad surrendered fewer than seven goals per game, while fifteen different players tallied goals or assists.

The high level of instruction offered, combined with the intense competition of ISL play, prepares Brooks graduates well for the college game. Recent 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. Former Brooks players are currently on the rosters at Bowdoin, Trinity, Colby, Connecticut College, North Carolina, Virginia, and Northwestern.

In addition, student athletes are fortunate to have access to the exceptional on-campus athletic facilities at Brooks. Athletes at all levels have the opportunity to use the fully equipped weight room to improve strength and conditioning, and a fully-staffed training room is available to treat injuries big and small.

Coaches

  • Coach

    Shaunielle A. McDonald graduated from Brooks in 1994 and then went to Boston University, where she majored in Secondary English Education. While at Boston University she served on the Executive Board of the historic Inner Strength Gospel Choir. After college, Shaunielle worked for non-profits in the Boston area teaching health and mentoring Boston Public School students to find pathways to careers in the healthcare field. Shaunielle returned to Brooks as director of the Gospel Choir in 2002. Formerly the director of diversity initiatives, McDonald is currently an English teacher and a dorm parent in Gardner House, lives on campus in Bertles House with her daughter, Naimah '19, and her mother, Miriam, a former trustee.

  • Coach

    Kelsey Klibansky began playing lacrosse when she was shorter than a lacrosse stick. She later represented Massachusetts on a select team and played varsity lacrosse as a freshman in high school. After serious injuries to her hands in adulthood, handling a lacrosse stick became painful and she believed that her lacrosse career was over. When she began coaching at Brooks School in 2019, this conviction was challenged on the field as she discovered that, in the words of a Brooks student athlete, she's "still got it." Aside from serving as a coach, Klibansky is an artist and Visual Art teacher. When she is not in the art studio, or on the lacrosse field, she enjoys whitewater sports, surfing and camping.
