Middlebury

A philanthropy network that supports Middlebury athletes. Go Blue!

Greetings from Middlebury! The 2017–18 academic year has been an exciting one so far for the women’s lacrosse team. We had a wonderful bonding weekend participating in community service for the local Rotary Club. Beyond that, the team has been busy setting its fall schedule of fall ball practices, lifts, and team get-togethers. Things seem to be off to a great start.

We are currently gearing up to host recruits this weekend. It is shaping up to be a quintessential beautiful fall weekend in Vermont. We will welcome a handful of current high school seniors to campus to watch our fall teams compete and then head out to hike Snake Mountain in the afternoon. This is one of those weekends that players remember forever. The next day we will host our annual fall clinic where we will coach up to 80 high school players. This is one of my favorite days of the year as we watch our players become coaches. We so enjoy seeing them encourage and inspire the participants to go outside their comfort zones and try new things. This is an important day for recruitment as well as for fundraising, as we rely on the profits of our clinic to help defray a portion of our spring break trip.

This year’s spring break schedule is a challenging but ultimately very exciting one. We have caught the Jersey bug after playing the College of New Jersey twice last year. Given that TCNJ ended our 2017 season, we are more than eager to face them again. We will begin spring break on our home turf against Bowdoin College on the first Saturday of break and then head south to play TCNJ and Montclair State. We then finish the break by heading to Amherst College for what always proves to be a great match-up. We hope we’ll see a lot of local alumni at all of those games!

It’s a jam-packed trip, but as you probably remember, that’s what makes for the best memories. As always, our goal is to keep the cost to players as low as possible. We need to raise $18,000 in addition to the proceeds from our annual fall clinic. I hope you will take this opportunity to support the team
