Bruins News · Saluting Our Seniors: Girls Lacrosse 2020


As we reach the time that we would have been hosting our spring sports senior night celebrations had the season not been interrupted, we would like to take a moment to honor this outstanding group of 2020 senior student-athletes on our website over the course of the next few weeks.  We will be releasing them as a team. Today we honor our girls lacrosse 2020 senior class.

Broadneck Bruins Girls Lacrosse Seniors 2020 

Coach Kelley reflects on the Class of 2020: 

“The Broadneck girls lacrosse class of 2020 is one that epitomizes all that is good about sport – a class defined by their unity, work ethic and positive approach to the field.  Each individual athlete works to be better for the good of their counterparts and brings a unique element of team leadership, creating a culture of players focused on the WE over the ME.  The seniors work to be the best, to inspire their teammates, and to model for the younger players what it means to be a Bruin.  Not only do they inspire a tough mental outlook and a team mentality, but in doing so, the 2020 class brings with them an elite level of talent.  The 2020 athletes have achieved great success on the lacrosse field, and in other realms of sport as well.  In addition, they carry their focus, achievement, and commitment to the classroom and community.  The senior class of 2020 is unparalleled in their humble confidence, team mentality, and level of effort.  They have left a legacy that is hard to match – a legacy defined by all that is embodied in being a Bruin.”
