Behind every strong team, there are strong leaders, passion for the game, and friendship. The Lasell Woman’s Volleyball team has all of these qualities, especially friendship, which despite a tough season, have only become stronger.
“If you see one of the volleyball players, you’re bound to see another, we’re always together,” said senior captain Kathy Cameron.

The Lasell College Women’s Field Hockey team joined a new conference this year, leaving the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) and joining the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC).
The change puts the Women’s Field Hockey team in the same conference as the rest of the athletic teams at Lasell. Lasell is one of four teams to join the GNAC from the NAC, the other three being Rivier, St. Joseph’s Maine, and Simmons. Mount Ida is in its first year as a program, Anna Maria joined from the New England Collegiate Conference, and Johnson and Wales was an independent program last year.

This past August, my field hockey team and I spent five days in Bermuda for pre-season. The trip had been discussed since I first stepped foot onto this campus my freshman year. When I first heard about this trip, I thought it was too expensive and there would be too much time spent fundraising before this trip would ever happen. I look back on these past three years I spent at different fundraising events and at the end of the day it was all worth it.

This fall, the Lasell College Drama Club will be putting on the production of the humorous and farce musical, “Urinetown.” The musical encompasses the evil “Urine Good Company,” which has outlawed the use of free public toilets due to a water shortage. In the fight to pee for free, unlikely heroes emerge and confront the megacorporation. Spencer Kosier will be holding a lead roll in the production as Officer Barrel in the production.
