Duluth Marshall welcomes girls and boys lacrosse to their program
The sports scene in the Northland continues to grow, and this time the spotlight is on Duluth Marshall. They have made room for boys and girls lacrosse programs and both teams opened their inaugural seasons this month.
“We have had a tremendous response to the first season of lacrosse girls and boys lacrosse at Marshall School. We have parents who have supported their children in their decision to play lacrosse, and we have students who have never played before who are coming out, supporting their school, supporting their classmates,” said varsity girl’s head coach Jennifer Hron.
The girls just wrapped up their first game against Brainerd, going on to lose 6-3. The Hilltoppers share what they learned and what game lessons will apply to the rest of their season.
“It was it was good, it was a lot closer than I thought; six to three. We played well, and for a lot of kids, it was their first ever time being on a marked field. So just the opportunity for them to go out and experience gameplay that was big,” eighth grader Ella Hron shared.
Eleventh grader Gabrielle Black added, “It’s kind of nerve-racking going in, being like, this is like our second-month playing, but it actually went pretty good. I feel very proud of how we were able to hold our ground behind those girls.”
The Hilltoppers will be on the road taking on Hermantown/Proctor on Friday. Game time is set for 6 p.m. Their one and only home game is May 16th against Duluth.
