The Westwood Lady Warrior Lacrosse team faced a fierce and competitive game against James Bowie High School, leaving them in the dust for the Warrior senior night. Westwood has been practicing non-stop this season to play hard and celebrate the senior’s last high school lacrosse game. Overflowing with people in the bleachers, fans were eager to watch what would happen in the end for the warrior’s senior game.

“I liked how everyone was doing their best for us seniors and showed up for the whole game. This season has had its ups and downs but it’s really been a fun season to play with friends,” Avry Kirk ‘24 said.

This senior night was packed with fans and supporters cheering on every player. The music blasted goal after goal, and the energy of the stands kept rising during every moment of the game. This game was truly a big highlight for these seniors, their teammates, and the people who came to support them as the Warrior Bowl was adorned with orange and white pride at every turn. After the game, their names were called up to celebrate their last moments on the Westwood lacrosse team alongside friends, family, and coaches.

“Senior night means a lot to me, there’s girls that I’ve known since I was three years old. I started playing freshman year thinking it was going to be my second sport because I was in basketball and as soon as I started lacrosse I was like; ‘This is what I want to do,’” Hailey Clementi ‘24 said.

While tonight’s game was a great success, the dedication and hours of practice didn’t come out of nowhere, as the varsity women’s lacrosse team has been preparing for tonight about two weeks. As the girls got more and more familiar with the other opponent’s goals, and the scoreboard numbers rose to the sky, they never did seem to lose any motivation. 

“This whole season has been amazing. I mean, it’s had its ups and downs but in the end, we made it to state and we played our hardest and poured our hearts out on this field and every field that we’ve played on,” Heaven Arteaga ‘24 said.

A spectacular senior seen on the field tonight was Clementi. Hailey was hustling down the field at every chance she got, putting herself in the action as often as possible, and She had the skills to show for it. Hailey knew she had to make her last game count, so she as launched herself onto the field one last game she scored a breath-taking 8-meter shot.

“My best highlight from tonight was definitely when I scored a really good 8-meter shot,” Clementi said.

All the dedication from tonight’s game couldn’t have been done without the support and love from teammates, coaches,  family,  and friends alike. To show it team over the weeks prior made decorations that were scattered everywhere possible to get everybody’s spirits high to celebrate the women’s lacrosse graduates of 2024. 

“Getting hype with my friends and really reflecting on every other game, and using that to energize myself to play my complete best for this game helped a lot. I also think my sister and my coaches were my biggest supporters definitely,” Heaven Arteaga ‘24 said.

With a fierce play and a breathtaking 12-3 win over the Bulldogs, Varsity lacrosse can end their season off on a high note. And with the support they’ve had for one another throughout the whole year, it doesn’t stop past high school as all supporters watch these seniors grow to become greater and greater in anything they set their minds to.
