Players of the Week - Girls' Junior Division (7th/8th Team)Updated Thursday November 9, 2017 by Lovejoy Leopards Lacrosse.
ENTIRE 7th/8th GRADE TEAM (week of October 21-22)
Congratulations to our 7th/8th grade Lady Leopards team. On October 21-22, they competed in the Turlaxin Tournament and played some tough and competitive teams. The improvement in the Lady Leopards 7th/8th grade team from their inaugural season last Spring to this Fall has been incredible. During the Fall season the team took a lot of other teams by surprise, thinking Lovejoy was going to be an “easy” game.
The girls’ lacrosse skills improvement and overall don’t quit attitude was all showcased during the Coppell game during the Turlaxin’ tournament. Last Spring, the Coppell game got so out of hand in Coppell’s favor that they stopped keeping score. This season, however, the team played Coppell to a 3-3 tie. Scoring the tying goal with only 10 seconds left. This team is going to be really tough in the Spring!
