Nationally, Foxboro, Mass., is known as the home of the champion New England Patriots. Locally, the town’s high school lacrosse teams are rising in recognition as emerging powerhouse programs.
Brittany Sherry, coach of the girls team at Foxboro High School, was there as a player when that program was founded in 2004. Last spring, she led her team to a 14-6 record, good enough to win the program’s seventh consecutive Hockomock League-Davenport title.
The team’s season ended with an 8-6 loss to Medfield in the second round of the Division 2 state tournament. Regardless, the trajectory of her team appears to continue upward.
“We didn’t get as far as we wanted to,” Sherry said. “The season before, we made it all the way to the sectional finals, but the tournament loss was a reality check that we need to keep working hard and stay focused.”
