Waubonsie / Metea Women’s Lacrosse Team Kicks Off Busy Schedule



Waubonsie / Metea Women’s Lacrosse Team Kicks Off Busy Schedule
“The Tribe” looks to make their mark on the area sports scene…

One year ago, a group of young women signed up to learn a sport that only a few of them knew. With girls from both Metea Valley High School and Waubonsie Valley High School, a new Lacrosse team was born.

Because the team was made up on girls from two different schools, a neutral team name had to be created. A vote was taken, and “The Tribe” was created. As the season progressed, The Tribe competed as a Junior Varsity club team, and went on to face the region’s most established and respected Women’s Lacrosse programs. In May of last year, The Tribe took part of the “Wildcat Classic”, a highly-regarded tournament comprising of 24 of the best Lacrosse teams in the state. To the surprise of many, The Tribe placed 4th in that tournament, and immediately established themselves as a program on the rise.

Now in their second season, The Tribe’s theme this year is “We’re Going Live”, and has expanded to include a Junior Varsity AND Varsity Team. Like last year, the JV team has a number of girls who’ve never played the sport before, but are eager to learn. The Varsity team is well-stocked with players who have at least one year under their belt, and are ready to expand upon their successes of last year.

So far this season, the Tribe has already matched up with some of the most prestigious teams in the area, including Lyons Township and Neuqua Valley. Their first home game is Saturday, April 16 at 9:00am, and will be played at Indian Plains School located at 1322 N. Eola Rd, at the entrance to Stonebridge. We encourage everybody to come out and cheer on The Tribe!

DID YOU KNOW?: Lacrosse is a team sport that is truly North American in nature. Believed to be originated by Native Americans across Canada and the United States, Lacrosse combines elements of hockey, basketball, and soccer, but relies more on speed and stamina instead of size and strength.
