The Trinity women’s lacrosse team has had a strong season this spring, boasting a 10-3 record as of their most recent game against Hamilton this past Saturday, their highest number of wins in a season since 2018. This was their last home conference game of the regular season, and they celebrated their five graduating seniors: Alisyn McNamara, Keelyn McNamara, and tri-captains Molly Broderick, Elle Fair, and Lily Ives. 

The No. 14 ranked Bantams dominated the No. 25 ranked Hamilton Continentals, finishing the game with a final score of 19-6. First-year attacker Molly McGuckin (Darien, Conn.), one of last week’s Bantams of the Week, scored six times. McGuckin has proved herself as an indispensable new asset to the Bantam lineup in her rookie year, leading the team in goals scored overall this season. She is followed by senior Lily Ives (Chappaqua, N.Y.) and junior Casey Ward (Norwell, Mass.). 

Last Wednesday night the Bantams also hosted their annual “Pride Game” at home against NESCAC rival Wesleyan University. Sports teams throughout the athletics department host “Pride Games,” which promote and celebrate inclusion and belonging. Donations to the Trevor Project are encouraged, which is an organization dedicated to mental health support and suicide prevention of LGBTQ youth. Trinity’s Queer Resources Center (QRC) tabled outside the game to raise awareness for the organization and collect donations. The Bantams lost to the No. 7 ranked Cardinals, with a final score of 20-13, their first loss in five games. 

Over spring break in March, the Bantams traveled to Colorado Springs, Colorado, to train and compete, taking on a handful of out-of-conference teams. The Bantams went up against Colorado College, completely annihilating the Prowlers with a final score of 23-8. This was the most goals the Bantams have ever scored in a single game, and the first time they had ever surpassed 20 goals scored. Ives, McGuckin, junior Caroline Lampert (Wayland, Mass.), and junior Natalie Miller (Northport, N.Y.) led in goals scored. Junior goalkeeper Alyssa Vitale (Palm Beach Gardens, F.L.) and first-year goalkeeper Ali Macdougal (Southbury, Conn.) made a combined seven saves throughout the game. 

In another one of their biggest wins this season, the Bantams wiped out No. 19 ranked Bowdoin 22-8 at the beginning of this month. Again, McGuckin commanded the field, scoring back-to-back goals for the Bantams. First-year Grace Denious (Wilton, Conn.) and junior Casey Ward also dominated on offense, netting three goals each. The Bantams have steadily improved their national ranking this season, beginning at No. 21 and currently placed at No. 14. 

Up next, the Bantams take to the road, playing Colby College this upcoming Saturday and Amherst next Wednesday, for their last two regular season games of the season.
