One of the oldest girls’ lacrosse programs in the state, Gould’s Girls’ Lacrosse Team boasts a longstanding tradition of fielding strong teams and players.
Practice often starts long before the snow begins to melt and takes place inside the Farnsworth Field House. Their team players utilize the wide open space for scrimmages and have access to several training rooms, a weight room, and an on-staff Athletic Trainer. Once the snow melts, the team takes to the Schroy Field Turf, with beautiful views of the surrounding campus and mountains.
The Girls Lacrosse Program competes against teams from the Maine Association of Independent Schools Athletic Directors (MAISAD), New England Prep School Athletic Council (NEPSAC), along with some of the best public high school programs in the state. Select students have gone on to play on the Maine Girls’ Lacrosse Team at The National Tournament.
