Editor’s note: This story appeared in the March issue of New England Lacrosse Journal. The America East conference made the decision to cancel all spring practices and competitions on March 12 due to the spread of the coronavirus, at which time the UNH women’s lacrosse team had a 1-4 record.
Last season, the University of New Hampshire women stepped up and disrupted the America East lacrosse scene, finishing with their best record in 10 years and their best conference record since 2005.
This spring, the Wildcats are hoping to do much of the same. To continue their success, they will rely on their closeness and their resilience to keep pace with some of Division 1’s best teams.
