Stetson Lacrosse Hopes to Win Fans in 2013 Inaugural Season



DELAND, Fla. – As one of the oldest team games played in America, it is only appropriate that the inaugural Stetson University women’s lacrosse team will play its first match against a team of players representing some of the original founders of the sport.

Today, was all about lifting team morale after yesterday’s loss against the Welsh. With the team deflated and most of our minds clearly in the wrong place, we were taken out for an unconventional training session.

The weather helped, with the sun hot enough to allow just pinnies. We reminded ourselves that although we could now only finish 9th, if we won our next game we could face the Welsh again, motivation enough to get everyone’s head back where it should be. I personally found ice cream, Subway, and muffins helped me get over the loss. Read More…
