Varsity Lacrosse Team 2015-2016
Westover Lacrosse continues to build the program as it looks to attract players with substantial playing experience. The program teaches the importance of good sportsmanship, healthful lifestyle choices and teamwork. Members of the team set goals as a group as well as individually for each game as well as the season. The athletes support each other in practices and games and challenge each other to improve every day. Players look to further their playing experience and join Westover alums already playing at the collegiate level.
Westover Lacrosse boasted the school's first Academic All American in 2008. USLacrosse named the Wildcat midfielder based on her Lacrosse accomplishments; four-year starter and captain, two-time New England All Star, over 100 points for her final two seasons and her academic prowess. In 2013, Westover had a Brine All-American and WNE All-Star and in 2015, another Wildcat attacker reached her 100th career goal.
The 2016 team will work to improve last year's record and match the CISAC title that the team won in 2015. With the addition of new team members and dedicated veterans, the Wildcats will see much success this season. The team is coached by new Head Coach, Kendra Galusha, and assistant coach, Dak Mannella, and co-captains Julia Atkins and Carolyn Brazil.
The Swim Team has made a big splash in the eight-year-old program's record books this season; seven of its 11 school records have been shattered.
Six Westover Wildcats representing all four varsity teams from the fall season have been honored as all-stars.
History was made Friday evening at the Fuller Athletic Center. Westover junior Gabbie Dunn became the first student-athlete in Westover history to reach 1,000 career points.
