On the field, our girls lacrosse players always play their hardest. The student athletes work cohesively and rely on teamwork under the guidance of coach Susan Robinson.
Our coaches are role models to their players, providing a challenging, competitive environment in which the ideals of respect, personal integrity, and character development are stressed. We recognize the tremendous value that comes from love of the game and the relationships players build as members of the team, and we strive to create an environment where the team and individuals flourish.
Aligned with Seven Hills’ full-participation athletics philosophy, our girls lacrosse program welcomes any athlete who wishes to play the sport. The Seven Hills girls lacrosse program is strongly committed to help each student athlete achieve her athletic goals and reach her fullest potential.
Girls Varsity Lacrosse Head Coach
Year Started: 2002
Going into each new season, I want my team to understand that the team as a whole is always better than the individual parts. The way we accomplish this is through trust — trust in me to put the team in the best position to win, and trust in their teammates to work together, knowing each person will do her job. I love when the girls take what we have been working on and put it together on the field. At practice, we try to have some fun every day, but we never simply go through the motions. The girls understand that everything we do in practice relates to the game, even if it is just one aspect. I often quote Ralph Waldo Emerson to my athletes, saying, “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm,” and we always try to apply this to our sport. I also believe that lacrosse provides great lessons for our athletes’ lives off the field, and hope that they can apply the disciplines they’ve established of dedication, responsibility, and effort to their future successes.
WHAT I LIKE BEST ABOUT COACHING AT SEVEN HILLS
We strive for excellence on our teams, but never at the expense of good sportsmanship and respect for each other and our opponents. Seven Hills has a no-cut athletics program, so the levels of our players’ athleticisms vary. What does not seem to vary is the level of commitment to improving and learning. My athletes desire to be the best they can be. They work hard and support each other as teammates.
