The girls lacrosse varsity program ended the season last year 14-4 and coachless.

Riding off of a high from a mostly successful season, the girls program was faced with the task of finding a new coach for the next season.

Elizabeth Murrin was the head coach of the girls lacrosse program for 14 years but unfortunately had to step away from her role for personal reasons.

In addition to Murrin’s departure, adored assistant varsity coach J.R Spencer also made the decision to step away from his coaching role as well.

The girls on the lacrosse team are very talented and bring a lot of skill to the field so it is inevitable that, despite getting acclimated to a new coaching staff, these girls will succeed. In fact, most of the players are and have been committed to Division I colleges for lacrosse.

With less than six weeks until the 2018 season begins, a new coach was finally announced.

Coach Mike Gutowski, former middle school girls lacrosse and soccer coach, was chosen to take on the the role of the head varsity coach. Having been familiar with most of the girls on the team, the weight of having a new coach was lightened significantly.

“I was definitely a little nervous to have a new coach going into senior year but I was very happy when I found out it was coach G,” returning senior Olivia Johnsen said. “I had him in middle school and he was such a great coach so I am beyond excited for him to coach us.”

The girls are relieved that there is a familiar face joining the varsity sidelines..

“We’ve been working hard in the offseason and if we continue to do that in the pre-season I think we have the potential to go very far,” Johnsen said. “I’m looking forward to seeing where the girls can go this year.”
