The DHS Girls’ Lacrosse team kicked off their season with the annual lacrosse Play Day. After a month’s worth of conditioning and a week of tryouts, the girls’ varsity team finally had a chance to put their training to work.
It was a day dedicated to lacrosse for many girls on Saturday February twentieth. Teams from all around Northern California came to compete on the Devils’ territory. Starting at eight in the morning, these teams battled throughout the day until 6 p.m. that night.
DHS girls’ lacrosse took advantage of the newly opened turf field and competed in 25 minute games against six difficult teams on Saturday. “I felt we did pretty well considering we hadn’t really practiced much at all. We worked really well together and had a lot of fun. Everyone was definitely exhausted by the end of the day, though.” Junior Briki Cajandig, goalie, said. After the long day of lacrosse, the DHS girls’ team managed to win four out of their six scrimmages.
The Play Day was only a warm-up considering the team’s upcoming schedule. With only one day of practice on Monday the twenty-second, they now move onto their first game on Tuesday against Bella Vista and then to their first home game on Friday against Oakridge.
