Girls Lax Wraps Up Season

Kennedy Catholic Girls Lacrosse finishes off a great season filled with accomplishments. The Gaels went 5-4 in the regular season, ending as finalists in the CHSAA Tier 1 City league. 

The Gaels had a lot to prove this year, finishing the previous season as state finalists and 2023 City Champs. Led by Coach MJ Garrity, the team showed a remarkable amount of strength, endurance, sportsmanship, and camaraderie that became essential to its success. Senior Captains  Maggie Gordineer, Julia Marsich, and Camille Stackhouse used their leadership roles all season to ensure that their team was always ready to give 100% effort and refuse to back down from any adversity. Many of the returning Varsity girls came back stronger, more experienced, and ready to put some numbers on the scoreboard.  While senior leadership was evident from the start, many underclassmen also made their mark on Varsity this spring. Sophomore Elena Bucello (‘26) held down the goal for the Gaels, once making 19 saves in a single game against Sacred Heart Greenwich. Nine girls joined the roster this year after being brought up from JV in the previous season. 

The Gaels came out with guns blazing for the start season. With a 13-game lineup, the team traveled to games as far as Staten Island to secure their spot in the playoffs. The season opener was a home game win (17-7) against Archbishop Molloy.  Some notable wins include St.Francis Prep (shutout 15-0), St Joe by the Sea (16-9), Our Lady of Lourdes (16-8), Xaverian (15-14), and many others. Like most things, the season also had its downs. The Gaels needed to come together to face their tough schedule. However, through the hardships, there were many highlights and accomplishments. Cam Stackhouse (‘24) scored her 100th career goal, Gianna Del Vechhio (‘24) secured her spot on Florida Tech University Women’s lacrosse team, Julia Marisch and Camille Stackhouse signed their letters of intent, defeated O’Neill High School in an upset on Senior Night (9-6), and many players showed a significant amount of improvement from the start of the season to now. 

The Gaels ended their season in the City Finals at Sacred Heart Long Island on May 11th. Although it was not the outcome they had hoped for, this season has taught many lessons about teamwork and perseverance that we will carry on with us into the next season and in life. Congrats to the Athletes, Coach, Parents, and athletic department on a great season. Go One More!
