The beginning of spring semester also means the beginning of spring sports for Coastal Carolina University. The Coastal Carolina women's lacrosse team is one of the many teams excitingly waiting for the season to start.
Head coach Kristen Selvage is also excited for the season and is hoping to win the conference championship this year.
“I am beyond excited – I live for it,” Selvage said.
Madeline Bromley, senior attacker and team captain, is also excited.
“We have back our entire line up minus on, so we are picking up right where we left off, I am very excited,” Bromley said.
The women lacrosse team will take on Old Dominion University on Feb. 9th, at Brooks Stadium. The ladies last saw Old Dominion in 2017, where they were defeated by one. The CCU ladies are hoping for a different outcome this season.
There was a lot of talk of rings and winning the Conference Championship this year as the team has reached the final for the last two years, only to fall short both times.
“I am hoping for a Conference Championship. We’ve been working towards the championship for two years, so it would be really special to win,” Bromley said.
Alongside Bromley is captain Haley Kyger, who is someone Selvage is excited to watch this season.
“Haley Kyger has fined tuned all levels of playing and I am excited to watch her play this season,” Selvage said.
The ladies of the CCU lacrosse team will face five new teams this season. They will be traveling to New York to take on Syracuse University on Feb. 18th. Coach Selvage wants people to see that the Womens Lax team is stronger than people think they are.
“I am 100% confident that my team can do whatever they put their minds to,” Selvage said.
The overall feeling going into the season for the ladies is one of excitement and hopefulness.
“More excited than nervous,” freshman attacker Lauren Cremen said.
The ladies first game is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9th at 1 p.m.
