The girls’ lacrosse team battled in a tournament on the UT intramural field Saturday, Nov. 4 and Sunday, Nov. 5 to see how they compared to other teams from Texas. Despite their diligent work, the Lady Warriors were unable to conquer over the difficult teams they faced.

“The teams were really hard, it was really difficult, the competition was super challenging,” team captain Anna Hagen ‘18 said, “but I think that we got better throughout each game that we played.”

The tournament was used as a way for the Lady Warriors to demonstrate what they’d been working on and what they should work on in the future.

“I definitely think that out transitions need to be improved a lot because a lot of the times we’d get the ball back on defense, and it’d be one person who’d get it up to attack,” Hagen said, “I think we need to work on finishing, getting the goal, and getting the ball up the field in a more effective manner.”

Only experienced players were allowed to play for Westwood for this tournament as the new players had not yet learned the skills required to play a game. People who had just joined the team were encouraged to come and watch a game so they could see how the sport is played.

“It was pretty inspiring because everyone acted like they knew what they were doing and the game was pretty fast paced,” April Gao ‘20 said. “It was entertaining but also really informative.”
