Lacrosse - Girls Varsity
The girls’ lacrosse program at Berkshire School emphasizes improvement, commitment, teamwork, and most of all fun. We play a very competitive schedule that includes many of the traditional prep school powerhouses like Loomis Chaffee, Greenwich Academy, Hotchkiss, and Taft. Our practices are high-intensity, focused, and efficient, incorporating fitness into skills work at all levels.
Our 16-game season begins in early April and wraps up at the end of May. Berkshire's two artificial turf fields ensure that upon return from our spring break trip to Florida we can practice outdoors in order to prepare for our first game against Northfield Mount Hermon.
The 2013 season marked a rebuilding year for the Bears. However, the 2014 season looks incredibly promising with 17 of the 19 letter winners returning to the field, including tri-captain and 2013 high-scorer Sydney Beldock ’14. The addition of many talented new students to the mix makes the future of the program, at both the Varsity and JV level, very bright.
