Congratulations to the women's lax team for going undefeated in conference, winning the BIG EAST, earning the No. 1 seed in the tournament and for just being awesome. Our spring sports always look different in my eyes becuase there season always seems really short and by this point in the year everyone is exhausted and looking to summer. However, having an incredibly successful team makes this time of year exciting as we get close to June.
The squad had two huge wins last week which hopefully solidified a spot in the NCAA Tournament field. With only 16 qualifying teams, it's tough to get in but I hope we have a chance this year after beating two nationally-ranked teams.
Also, congrats to Caitlin Formby for earning BIG EAST Defender of the Week. She played two outstanding games and was the difference in the wins. Despite being undefeated, this is our first weekly award of the season since we have had such a balanced squad this year.
Finally, make sure to tune in to Thursday's BIG EAST Tournament game on CBS College Sports. We are an exciting team to watch and with announcers Jason Knapp and Sheehan Stanwick you'll get an interesting broadcast as well. We're sure Loyola will come out fired up so it will be a great game.
