Girls Varsity Lacrosse
Girls Varsity Lacrosse
The Nobles lacrosse program has established itself as one of the premier teams within the Independent School League and throughout New England. The success is attributed to the program’s focus on team play. Coaches and players work daily on fundamental skills, strategy, and general understanding of the game to build a cohesive unit and continue the program’s reputation of excellence. However, what is most important to the coaches and the players are the lessons learned beyond the lacrosse field such as a determined work ethic, sportsmanship, and teamwork. The coaches hope that Nobles lacrosse players look back on their experiences and remember the strong relationships they built by working hard at something they love to achieve a common goal. Though the focus of our program is on team play first and foremost, we have many players who receive individual recognition for their outstanding performances each season. Over the last several years, we have had numerous All-League players, National All-Americans, and National Academic All-Americans. Additionally, Nobles helps prepare players to compete at the next level, as there are many Nobles Alumnae currently competing in top Division I and Division III programs.
