Lacrosse season is upon us and the Clairemont High School team is ready to take on the field with their goal of playing as a cohesive unit, both offensively and defensively. With Coach Casey Glick at the helm, the team is looking to showcase their chemistry and highlight their talented senior class. Coach Glick is confident in his team's abilities, especially when it comes to their strong defense, led by senior Chloe Antonio. He also expects a standout season from senior attack player Jack Wooley. But it's not just the returning players who will make an impact this year. Coach Glick is also excited about the potential of some of the newer players, particularly freshman Chloe Keller and Sierra Ladwig, both of whom have already shown their skill and determination. As a coach, Coach Glick looks for well-rounded players to lead the team as captains. He wants individuals who can inspire their teammates both on and off the field, and who foster a strong work ethic and dedication to the game. Luckily, with a large senior class, Coach Glick has plenty of candidates to choose from for the team's 2024 captains. To build team chemistry, Coach Glick has already implemented a few team bonding activities such as a game night at the San Diego Seals and a team yoga event. He believes that these opportunities for the girls to bond outside of practice will only strengthen their relationships on the field. As a newer program, Coach Glick puts emphasis on highlighting the team's accomplishments, no matter how small. He believes this encourages the players to keep pushing themselves to improve in each practice and game. And with a strong freshman class eager to join the team, Coach Glick is excited to see the program grow and develop in the coming years. The competition in the league has also grown stronger this year, but Coach Glick and his team are up for the challenge. He looks forward to facing teams like Lincoln and Morse, and is also excited to see Mission Bay join the league this season. The team has been working hard during the off-season, following a new conditioning program that Coach Glick believes will pay off in their upcoming games. He has seen improvements in the girls' speed and endurance, and is confident that this will give them an edge on the field. One of the team's strengths, according to Coach Glick, is their defense. The girls have developed a strong chemistry and communication on the field, making their defensive efforts look effortless.
