Lacrosse - Girls Varsity

Overview

Wyoming Seminary’s girls lacrosse team is the premiere girls lacrosse program in northeastern Pennsylvania. In our inaugural season as a member of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA), the Blue Knights won the District II Championship and captured the title again in 2012, 2013, and 2014. The Blue Knights went onto play in the PIAA State Tournament all four seasons and in 2013, then played in the quarterfinal round of the tournament.

The Blue Knights compete in District II within the PIAA. We play local teams as well as teams from the Allentown area and a number of schools throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. Each season, our schedule is competitive and diverse so we reach our goal of becoming an elite program in Pennsylvania and surrounding states.

Many of Sem’s lacrosse players are multi-sport athletes and their experiences with other Sem programs make the spring season a fun and competitive one. Lacrosse is a sport that will push and challenge you, enhance your self-confidence and leadership skills, and allow you to develop strong friendships with teammates and coaches alike.

All home games are played at Klassner Field, a state-of-the-art NeXturf facility, located on Sem's campus.

Former members of the Blue Knight squad have played or are currently playing at:
• Hamilton College (2008 DIII NCAA Champions, captain)
• Franklin & Marshall (2009 DIII NCAA Champions)
• Lafayette College (DI)
• Central Connecticut State (DI)
• Mount Holyoke College (DIII)
• Wilkes University (DIII)
