Moving up the ranks of girls lacrosse in Connecticut is tough enough. When you’re in the FCIAC and squaring off with teams consistently ranked at the top of regional polls, it becomes a nearly impossible task.
That hasn’t stood in the way of Fairfield Ludlowe. In fact, the Falcons welcome the challenge.
“The FCIAC is a gantlet, but we embrace that,” head coach Kimberly Sheehan said. “Especially as a young team, I view us as being fortunate to face challenging competition game after game — I think it’s helped our progress, really forcing us to raise our level of play and come together as a squad.”
