Senior Kayla Carollo is the only senior captain of the Law girls lacrosse team this year, along with sophomore captain Stella Patrick and junior captain Angela Scuito.
Carollo was interested in trying a new sport her sophomore year, which was when the girls lacrosse program started at Law. She immediately loved it, and since then lacrosse has been her favorite sport because of her supportive coaches and teammates.
Carollo was a full-time JV player as a junior and is now on varsity as a senior. She said she is honored to be a captain.
“I love being lacrosse captain,” Carollo said. “My teammates and coaches make all the practices and games such a good time. I love the sport and I love everyone I get to play with.”
Carollo has always been committed to the team’s daily practices, which are two hours long, six days a week.
Carollo also recently attended the SCC Captains Council, where she met up with other lacrosse captains in her team’s division.
“It was a great experience to meet and bond with other captains of lacrosse teams that we will be competing against throughout our season,” Carollo said. “We learned leadership and communication skills that will be helpful to me and my co captains for the season.”
Carollo’s teammates are excited about this upcoming season as well.
“This season I’m looking forward to team bonding,” freshman Mary Lonergan said. “Our lacrosse team has a bunch of great girls and I can’t wait to become close with them.”
Along with the other captains, Carollo helps with team bonding and makes practices more enjoyable for the players.
“So far the season has been better than any other,” senior Kelly Scianna said. “It feels more like a family and all the captains make it really fun.”
Carollo hopes to build off of last year’s successful season.
“I hope that we can make it to the third round in states this year,” Carollo said. “Last year was the first season that girls lacrosse had a varsity program and we made it to states, so I know that we can do even better this year. We’re working hard and so far we’re off to a great start. I can’t wait for more to come.”
