As the Green Hope High School Women’s Lacrosse team progresses through their season, the players continue to work hard with high hopes for the conclusion of their season.

With a record of 4-5, the team steadily holds 5th place in the Southwest Wake Conference. It has been a tough season against some strong competition in a new conference for the girls, but the players have high hopes for their next few games with ambition to turn the season around. 

Sophomore Anna Bergamini, a defender on the Varsity team, just moved to Green Hope this year, and has had a very positive experience being a part of the team. She says, “The team got so close but also welcomed me at the same time. I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with them this year.”

Anna, along with the rest of the team, can agree that the lacrosse season this year has been tough, but a good experience that will only get better as the season progresses. 

The title of leading goal scorer is currently held by Delaney Cowen, with a season total of 29 goals. Kayla Nguyen has the most assists, with a total of 30. Both are sophomores who played Varsity last year. The two players were key in Green Hope’s monumental win over Apex, who’s known as a good lacrosse school, 17-12 on March 24th. Defensively, Senior Maddie Shockley holds the record for ground balls with 16.

The girls are heading into a game this Monday, April 4th, against Heritage High School, a tough opponent. With hopes to turn their season around, and win the conference again like last year, the Women’s Lacrosse team is predicted to have some good games.
