First Banner Within Reach for BVT Girls LAX

Winning a slightly smaller Colonial Athletic League (CAL) roster of teams would not dampen the excitement for the Blackstone Valley Tech girls lacrosse team, which finds itself within striking distance of the league title with less than two weeks to play.
"I think it would be a great ending for another transition and building year," head coach Katie Barbour said. "The girls would be really excited and it would prove to them just how capable they can be."
The Beavers began the week 3-1 in CAL play with a pair of league contests remaining. The record is good enough to tie Assabet for the top spot in the league, with Monty Tech and Nashoba Valley Tech looking up in the standings. Being in a position to win the league has Barbour feeling good about the progress her team has made over the course of the spring.
"I think the season has gone well, there is improvement in every game," she said. "Right now the girls are trying to focus in on our last two league games and bring home a banner for lacrosse for the first time."
BVT had Nashoba Valley Tech on the schedule this week and a showdown with Assabet is set for next Tuesday. The Aztecs are the only Colonial team to defeat the Beavers this season. The girls lacrosse program at Valley Tech is only five years old, and this spring marks the third for the varsity program.
Barbour said she has been impressed by her team's performance, including Emily Whittaker-Smith, who has scored in nearly every game, and Alex Marios, who recently netted a hat trick and "has done an incredible job of stepping up on the attack," the coach said.
Juniors Vanessa Trapasso and Maggie Gurney have helped provide depth at both midfield and on the attack, Barbour said, and sophomores Katie Housekeeper and Olivia Harris have impressed on defense since being called up from the JV team.
"We started out a little rocky, because the girls were not used to playing with each other," Barbour said. "But now, we are in a groove, and that is exciting."
The Beavers began the week with a 3-7 overall record with six games remaining on the schedule. After tilts against Worcester Doherty, which BVT lost 15 to 2 on May 15, Nashoba Valley Tech on May 18, and Tantasqua on May 19, the Beavers turn their attention to Gardner, Assabet, and Nipmuc to close out the regular season.
