Women’s lacrosse is hopeful for their upcoming season and aiming to win league this year.

“We are really going to miss Erin Walsh, but a lot of girls have been stepping up this year,” said captain Alex Seclow ‘11.

Other captains this year are Maddie Zimmerman ‘11, Caroline Cook ‘11 and Danie Albo ‘11. Peter Carolan returns for his second year as head coach.

“Danie Albo is probably one of the best goalies in league. She is really central to our defense and is crucial to our victories in a lot of games,” said Seclow. Albo will be key to Miramonte’s success this season.

Acalanes is the team’s biggest rival this year and on March 22 the team battles them in their first league game.

“I am really impressed with the level of aggression and competitiveness on our team and think we have a good shot at winning league,” said Seclow.

Last year women’s lacrosse made it to the first round of NCS and are shooting to win league this year.

“I am very interested to see how we will do this year because we have about eight seniors, some of whom have not played lacrosse for a couple of years, and the rest are mostly underclassmen. But our team definitely has a lot of talent,” said Albo.

Some other goals this year are to keep a good team dynamic because “a major part of the sport is making sure people are on the same page and are communicating with each other,” said Albo.

Women’s lacrosse defeated Piedmont 14-6 on March 2 as well as Redwood 14-7 on March 9 and play Davis tonight at 7p.m.
