Kennedy Catholic Girls Lacrosse is starting off to what is sure to be an exciting season. For the first time in the New York Catholic High School Athletic Association‘s history, there is a female lacrosse league. The league consists of eight teams and next year will expand to include the Archdiocese of Brooklyn and Queens. In seasons past, Kennedy girls lacrosse could only participate in tournaments or play friendlies, but this year they have the chance to win titles. The Kennedy Gaels are eager to make the most out of this new opportunity and have set their standards high. Under the leadership of senior captains, Hannah Callaghan, Meghan Dooley, Deirdre Ledley, and Gabriella Vlattas, the team hopes to spearhead a legacy of Kennedy Catholic girls lacrosse with this first season in the league. Coach Matthew Tieber helped form the league and has also set high aspirations for their season. He has stacked the team’s schedule with many crossover  games against teams in Section 1 and the NYSAIS to keep the team ready for tough competition. They are approaching the season focused, determined and aren’t taking anything for granted. This team is certainly one to watch as they begin their journey this spring.
