Sunday against East Lyme (finally close to home!)

Arrival: 9:15 ideal, but NLT 9:30!

Location: Bridebrook Park, Niantic

See you tomorrow!

Games, Babies & Coaches
by posted 05/18/2022

Babies have arrived in the Ticks family! Congratulations to Dan and Alexandria DePasquale (parents of Mackenzie) on their new baby born this past weekend! And to Assistant Coaches Mackenzie and David on the birth of their baby yesterday! Both babies decided to come several weeks early! From what I understand, all are doing well!

On to games... this Friday's game against Cheshire has been cancelled. With half our team unavailable (and two-thirds of our coaching staff!), it was a necessary call. 

This weekend we have two games. Details for each day below. I am hoping that we will have our full team together for our final few games! We have not had our full team since our Ice Breaker Tournament where we won the championship! I think the babies decided to come early to bring us luck!

Saturday against Branford

Arrival: 8:15 ideal, but NLT 8:30!

Location:  Young Ponds Park in Branford

Directions here.

 

Sunday against East Lyme (finally close to home!)

Arrival: 9:15 ideal, but NLT 9:30!

Location: Bridebrook Park, Niantic

Directions here.

 

COACHING SUPPORT NEEDED

Thank you again to Dan and Shawn for stepping in to coach the team this past weekend! With Mackenzie and David out for the season, I could definitely use some assistance, if not just to help with injuries, warm-ups, etc. The players have become very adept at on-field positioning/changes. If you would like to volunteer support, please message me. :)

Practice is on tonight! See you then!

Game Today in Stamford
by posted 05/15/2022

Hello! We haave a game today in Stamford. Arrival time NLT than 1PM (but preferably 12:45).

Directions here for Stamford HS Boyle Stadium (Coach Mackenzie knows the way there!) 

Unfortunately we will not have our full team today. However, I'm confident that today's game will be much better than yesterday's game. I just have a very good feeling about it. :)

And speaking of which, I am so thankful to have such a committed group of players. Yesterday was tough, but the girls should be proud of what they accomplished. My understanding is that the team played very well together. We were simply going against a top tier team with a serious disadvanted on our side with lack of players and miserably hot weather.

We are very thankful for Olive's dad, Dan, stepping in at the very last minute to coach the team. Special thank you to Kendal's mom, Denise, for jumping into action. 

Today is a new day with a new opportunity...so let's rock this game!

Coach Gilbert

Parking @LOLHS message from Ticks Board
by posted 05/11/2022

Hello Again,

Please see the following message from the Ticks Board:

"I got a call from the LOL HS Facilities Director and he asked if we could utilize the student parking lot adjacent to the field as opposed to in front of the maintenance garage bays. If you would all kindly send a message to your teams that if you are practicing at the school turf field if everyone could please park in the student lot as opposed to the parking spaces by the field so as not to  block the maintenance garage bays."

PS. You may have received notification for a Jamboree on 6/12 in Cheshire. I highly recommend attending this fun-filled day. We have waited three years to have a jamboree (covid)...it's really one of the most loved highlights of the lacrosse season.
