The snowy weather hasn’t stopped the women’s lacrosse team from beginning their 2015 season. Last year, Lasell finished in the GNAC Conference 7-3 and 9-8 overall.

Despite the snow, the team has been able to get in a few practices outside with the removal of snow from the turf field, and some indoor practices in the gym, focusing on strength and conditioning training.

This year, the team welcomed two new attack players, freshmen Taylor Yandow and Danielle Chambrelli, who are both set to be great additions to the team this season.

“I’m excited to be part of the team, everyone is so welcoming, which is making my transition here at Lasell so much easier,” said Chambrelli.

The team welcomed back several players this season including standout players from last season like senior goalie Alexa Katsigianis, senior attack Caitlyn Brecher, senior midfielder Toni Minnelli, and junior midfielder Ashlee Pechulis.

“I want to go into every game working hard, giving effort and putting all the pieces together to have a close team,” said Head Coach Caitlyn Connolly.

The women’s lacrosse team opens their 2015 season on Tuesday, March 3 at 3:00 p.m. against Salem State on Grellier field.
