Chants take the lacrosse field
Coastal Carolina women’s lacrosse team heads full force into pre-season. With a semester of fall ball behind them and the hopes for a conference championship in their minds, these Chants are ready for their season.
With three Chanticleers already named for the pre-season all-conference team: Emily D’Orsaneo, Megan Kilapatrick, and Samantha Courtemanche, the teammates are excited for their first match.
With the first game coming soon, the coaching staff is focusing on preparing the team. Kristen Selvage, head coach, leads thirty-three girls into their first game of the season on Saturday, Feb. 8, against Old Dominion, at Old Dominion.
“Our ultimate goal is to win the conference championship and we will do that by improving upon each game in the regular season,” assistant coach Sara Nolan said. “A lot of focus within our players has been evident on the field and everyone feels on the same page.”
With a schedule that is predominately away this season, their first home game will take place at Brooks Stadium, March 15. Lyla Robinson, a senior captain, will be taking the field one last time for her first game of the season. With eight other teammates graduating beside her, she looks back on her years on the field and expresses what this program means to her.
“I feel super proud to be a part of a team like this and I want to cherish this final season till the very end,” Robinson said.
The season is packed with a lot of great competition with 10 away games for the Chants, travelling as far as Colorado for games against CU Boulder and Denver University. Check out their schedule at https://goccusports.com/sports/womens-lacrosse/schedule and show support for their upcoming season!
