Coaches, players and parents, thanks to all of you for your time and effort this season to reestablish lacrosse in Northern Vermont. Despite so many issues and unknowns, we were able to complete the entire season with only a few missed games.
And the Championship Games for the 7/8 teams demonstrated the effort and perseverance of the players. Despite soaring temps on the turf, the players battled so hard and put on a great demonstration of lacrosse. Both boys games were settled in either the last minute or overtime. And the Girls D1 game came down to the last possession. After four VERY intense games, the players also showed their sportsmanship with heartfelt Honor the Game ceremonies.
One memory I’ll take away was a Barre girl, after their heartbreaking one-goal loss, yelling at the entire Middlebury team that she had so much fun playing them and thanking them for a great game. That’s what it’s all about.
Here are the 2021 7/8 Champions.
Girls D1 – Middlebury
Girls D2 – Plattsburgh
Boys D1 – South Burlington
Boys D2 – Harwood 2
