My last four years playing lacrosse for Beaverton have been a very memorable experience. Every year brings a new set of faces and a new team. As a senior, I am able to help lead the team and get to know all of the girls better. It is a very rewarding and fun as well. I get to see the team grow and mature throughout the season, all while becoming stronger and closer together. I am sad to be leaving the team, however, I will always cherish the memories that I made with them.
My favorite lacrosse experience is when our lacrosse team went on our team retreat. Every year, we begin the season at Twin Rocks Friends Camp. During the trip, we stay at the beach in cabins with our future teammates. It is my favorite part of the season because it is a good bonding experience and we can get to know each other. It is also enjoyable because we play a lot of games and activities.
My favorite activity was a stick building competition; we had to make a functional lacrosse stick out of miscellaneous items. It was challenging, but it helped us work to together and show our creative side. After that, we walked along the beach, which was a welcome break from the cabins. The trip is always a refreshing escape from school and an exciting thing to look forward to.
