Somers senior Teagan Lucchese plays attack and midfield for the varsity girls lacrosse team. She also was on the field hockey squad. Lucchese will continue her lacrosse career at Drexel University.

How old were you when you started playing lacrosse and how did you get started?

I officially started in second grade, but I have had a stick in my hand since birth. My dad played the sport in college and coached a boys high school team after graduating, so it was only natural that he introduced lacrosse to me and my siblings.

What are the team’s goals/expectations this season under two new coaches in Alexa Lucchesi and Tori Doyle?

Since we only have eight returning players, it is going to take us some time to jell, adjust to each others’ tendencies and build a strong chemistry. Without these, we won’t be able to have success.

The team lost some key players to graduation, including 200-goal scorer Livy Rosenzweig. How do you think the team will make up for that lost production? Will it be a collective effort?

Well, those are certainly some big shoes to fill, but we have several players on our squad that are more than capable of stepping up.
