Lacrosse Coach Desperately Needed to Help Motivate Seekonk High Athletes
Uncertainty fills the hearts of Seekonk High School as a coach-lacking women's lacrosse team is facing a forfeited up-and-coming season.
The Seekonk Warriors have been an organized lacrosse team since 2021 that was quickly put on hold when Covid swarmed the planet and now they're up against the wall without a coach to motivate them on the field.
"As of right now, we currently don't have a coach for the women's team," Kate Terrien, a parent of one of the players said, "We're looking to get someone in who is ready to get these girls ready and conditioned for the Spring season."
Terrien has stepped in to do what she can to help both the women's and men's teams with fundraising but claims her knowledge of the sport only goes so far. For some athletes at Seekonk High, their future depends on playing in high school, and without a women's coach, they might not have the chance to excel on a collegiate level.
"No one is expecting a coach to come into the program and take them to a championship," Terrien explained, "We're even working hard behind the scenes to help the recreation league do well to funnel into the high school. These girls are looking to play lacrosse in college, and we could use someone willing to step into a division 6 team and looking to build from there."
Both teams play against Dighton Rehoboth, O.R.R., Bridgewater, and Bourne, and scrimmage against Tiverton High on their brand new state-of-the-art turf multi-sport field. The only missing link is a coach to piece the puzzle together.
"The program is made up of a good group of people and a good group of kids," Terrien concluded, "It's a long shot, but I hope we can find someone willing to step up for these kids."
