The Lady Dragon Lacrosse recognized several players with year-ending awards. In addition to sending off Dragon Seniors - midfielders Laura Casey and Hannah Smith and Attack Rachael Goodman, Head Coaches Faith Renner and Melissa Cooper named Varsity and JV players.

The Varsity Lady Dragons, who qualified for this year’s playoff with a dramatic win 11-10 win against Plano, had a chance to reflect back on their season as Head Coaches Faith Renner and Melissa Cooper recognized several Varsity and Junior Varsity players.

Varsity awards:

The Most Improved Player recognition went to Freshman Sydney Lothes, who played both defense and midfield. Issy Russey, a Junior midfielder netted the Offensive MVP award.

On defense, Junior Annie Teer’s efforts earned her the Defensive MVP award. The Dragon Spirit Award went to Sophomore defender Felicita Hawes.

For the Junior Varsity team, Most Improved Player recognition went to Sophomore Defender Morgan Dobbs. Freshman Midfielder Ashton Daly scored the Offensive MVP award.

Natalia Capetillo, a Junior Defender earned the Defensive MVP recognition while fellow Junior Defender Jordan Candler earned the Dragon Spirit Award.

The program looks to continue to build and grow under first-year Coach Faith (Richards) Renner. Renner, a former D1 player for Rutgers University where she was a two-time All American, Captain and Player of the Year, will now have a full summer and fall to work with the returning players and incoming freshman. The strong run at the end of the season in the playoff drive demonstrates that things are moving in a positive direction.

The growth of lacrosse in the area is reflected in the makeup of this year’s squad which, in addition to just three seniors, had 11 Juniors, 10 Sophomores and 12 Freshmen. Additionally, there were 12 eight-graders who played this past season as well.

To help further this growth and introduce new players to the game, the Southlake Carroll Lacrosse Association will be hosting Tuesday night clinics and pickup games at CIS. These will allow interested girls to learn more about the sport of lacrosse. Information can be found at www.southlakelacrosse.org.
