Five Ethel Walker School students were selected to compete in the US Lacrosse National Women’s Tournament after an extensive tryout held earlier this month.
Mia Farnella ’18, Caroline Stent ’19 and Shay Ventresca ’19 were all selected to represent Connecticut on Team 1. Abby Grimaldi ’20 was selected to Team 2, and KC O’Connor ’19 was selected to Team 3. More than 200 girls tried out for these teams, and just over 60 were selected to participate.
The 2017 National Tournament will be held at Yale University on May 27 and 28, 2017 and will feature more than 70 teams and 1,500 high school girls’ lacrosse players from across the country. Regional teams will compete against each other in front of coaches from over 175 colleges in the tournament, which has been a mainstay in US Lacrosse since 1933.
“It is a great achievement for the Walker’s lacrosse program to have such great representation at such a high-level event,” said Walker’s Athletic Director John Monagan.
