  • Lacrosse - First Girls'

    2018 - 2019
    Head Coach: Whitney Powel

    Westminster’s First Girls’ Lacrosse has a tradition of gritty play and strong character, fielding three competitive teams each spring. Over the past decade, the team has risen to become one of the premier programs in Western New England, competing in the Class A division, with an excellent 14-year record of 142-60-2.
     
    The school’s commitment to girls’ lacrosse is apparent in the fantastic facilities available for the program and players, including beautiful fields nestled in the woods of the lower campus, a synthetic turf field, and a weight training room in the Sherwin Athletic Center. In addition, Westminster’s hockey rink, Jackson Rink, is turned into an indoor turf field for the spring and summer months and was used by the U.S. Men’s National Indoor Lacrosse team for its final round of tryouts and scrimmages before the world championship tournament not long ago.
     
    Head coach Whitney Powel ’11 is honored to lead the girls' program, welcoming back 15 letter winners for the 2019 spring season. Powel captained the team her senior year and went on to play at Denison University where she was a starting midfielder. As a two-time captain, Powel led the Big Red to back-to-back NCAC Conference Tournament titles and two NCAA postseason bids and, at the end of her career, was honored in 2015 with the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III Scholar Athlete of the Year award. Joining Powel in leading the program is assistant coach Colleen Joncas who brings years of incredibly successful coaching and playing experience to the Westminster Girls' Lacrosse program.
     
    Westminster graduates have gone on to play at colleges and universities at the Division I and III levels, including Trinity, University of Denver, Gettysburg, Cornell, Colby, Skidmore, Bowdoin, Babson, Roanoke, Union, Lehigh, Vassar, University of California at Berkeley, Denison, Wheaton and Holy Cross. The program has produced several All-Americans, Honorable Mention All-Americans and Academic All-Americans over the years.
